Tissot Rare 28.9 (Lemania 13CH) Vintage Chronograph from 1941

€6.800,00 Sale price

Regular price €6.800,00

Production of the 13CH movements by Lemania begun in 1932, supplying Tissot and Omega (Omega 28.9) mainly. A small caliber, which was the first real wrist chronograph movement for these brands. Very soon, one year later in 1933, Omega and Tissot started using the bigger and more reliable Lemania 15CH (Omega 33.3) caliber for their chronographs. So fewer and fewer watches were made with the 28.9 movement until the end of production in 1943. Examples with this little gem by Lemania are so scarce now, making them highly sought after by collectors!!

On offer is a beautiful steel and fully original Tissot from 1941. Case dimensions are 32.8mm without the crown x 37,5mm lug to lug. Fixed spring bars are still intact. 

Spotless original black Base 1000 dial with original rose gold coloured hands. Some pitting and colour change on one subdial hands but other than that, they are in very good condition. Original crown. 

Signed caseback and movement as well. 

Caliber 28.9 was just serviced and comes with one year warranty.

This Tissot also comes with its original box.
