Hello. I have found a Lemania wristwatch in good shape except for the dial ! The caliber is the so called CH27 (320 for the Omega fans). Being not a Lemania specialist I would like to learn more about that watch, i.e. reference number, pictures, copy of catalog, etc. Of course, above all I'd like to find a new dial but that is perhaps hopeless. I'm sorry if the model is difficult to recognized but I did my best to show it through a picture. I thank you very much for your input and remarks. Jean-Pierre

I suppose this is essentially meant to be used for parts to repair other movements, since there is virtually nothing remaining of the original watch. Unfortunately, it's not likely that this chronograph had any particular model name or even reference number.

I would say no watch is beyond saving....this one comes close but still. Having a CH27 project underway myself I encourage others to not give up. Granted mine has a complete case, pushers, good dial and all the correct hands minus the chronograph hand....Yours would take far more work. But if had at a reasonable price and no illusions of it being ever considered an all factory original watch...go for it. You will have to consider the costs though. Redial vs original sourced from somewhere. Hands. Service. Pushers. Crystal. Crown and stem.

The costs can mount up quickly and if you weigh the costs plus the original cost to what you can find complete, running, and serviced for sale may tell you best which way to go.

Mine was free so no base costs.
