Very beautiful movement there. Just one questions, pardon my ignorance, what is a Lemania?

Omega went to the Moon with the Omega Speedmaster 105.XXXX series, and some ocassional 145.12XX series. Not one single of these watches used the Lemania 1861 or its relatives (Omega 145.22XX series), all of them used the Lemania 2310 AKA as Omega 321.

One last addition. In 2019, Omega re-introduced the Omega 321 movement, but so far have not indicated which models will use it. And it also introduced the Omega Master Chronometer 3861. The Master Chronometer 3861 is manually wound and features Omega’s co-axial escapement, it is a Chronometer grade certified by METAS, and can withstand 15,000 gauss or higher, being totally impervious to magnetic fields. It only exists inside the Omega 50Tth Anniversary of the First Moon Landing in 1969. You can check that info at the Omega official web site, and at some other Watch web sites.

Most accurate mechanical or automatic movement that I have ever owned. Light wind up in the morning and accurate to -1/1 second per day. I miss my moon watch.
