    For Lemania collectors

    Browsing Eberhard & Co watches on Chrono24 this unusual, and I assume rare, configuration is offered. It houses the Lemania 5195 movement. The dial shows GMT in the subdial (at 3), running seconds and 12 hrs subdials along with the center seconds and center minutes (like the famous Lemania 5100). It is in new, used condition. OK, the crown is a bit exotic but still...

    (Usual disclaimer: I have no connection with seller or watch)

    Interesting piece and a nice find - doesn't come up when searching for Eberhard lemania though. Do you have a link?

    Many thanks - do you know if the movement with the independently settable GMT subdial also came with a date function?

    Edit: drat, would seem not https://chuckmaddoxwatch.blogspot.co...ly_13.html?m=1

    Interestingly, the Eberhard in your OP seems to be new to the writers of the article.

    Thanks - quite tempting to go with the 5190 but one variation is probably enough for me.

    Sweets posted on TZ-UK about the 5195, a couple of years ago: https://forum.tz-uk.com/showthread.p...ia-powered-Gmt

    As you know, I am primarily a Lemania collector, and this is an example of one of two unique complications on the Lemania 5100 engineered and soley used by Eberhard.

    This one was called the 5195, and in this variation the 5100 loses the day and date, plus the tied day/night indicator at 12. But it gains an independently-set 24-hr hand at 3, a GMT hand. Here I have set at it European time, GMT+1.
    (For completeness I should mention that the other Eberhard complication was called Mareoscope and had a tide indicator)

    This version gives 5100 funtionality in chronograph terms (central seconds and minutes), no date, compax layout, and the addition of an independent GMT hand. Which is a powerfully attractive combination.

    Thanks for posting, a very useful variant. GMT would seem a more useful complication than day date for all of those aerospace applications of the 5100.
