It is said that this type of watches, manufactured by Lemania, was delivered in three batches to the Swedish authority during the 1950's. The watch described here is out of the first batch, therefore the dial is not signed Tg195 or TG195 nor shows the typical engraving of the three crowns known as ''tre kronor'', small or large executed, on the case back. These watches are fitted with the Lemania cal.2225 and feature a pusher at 2 o'clock, when pressing them, the crown pops out, the center second is reset instantly to 12 o'clock and the movement hacks. In this position, the person, who is wearing the watch, is able to set the time. When pressing the crown in, the watch starts to run again. This complication was useful to synchronize watches. The Lemania, offered here for sale, is an early and rare example out of the first batch, as already mentioned above. Remained in well preserved condition, the watch has a beautiful gilt dial and the luminous arabic numerals as well as the hands show an attractive aging.
