    But it also shows a day-date display, which seems to validate my theory that Furrer's watch was in fact powered by a Lemania 5012.

    Great thread!

    While digging around I found this image that should settle the debate. I'll leave it to the experts in the group but I do believe that Pascal was correct in his assumption.

    Here is something from the 140 St S white paper:

    "The chronographs of the series 140 and 142 belong to our most illustrious timepieces. They have gone down in both watchmakingand space flight history. The German physicist and astronaut Reinhard Furrer wore the 140 S with Lemania 5100 movement on hiswrist during the D1 Spacelab Mission in 1985. He was therefore able to demonstrate that automatic watches can function even in aweightless environment. In 1992 the astronaut Klaus-Dietrich Flade took his 142 S along with him on the Mir-92-mission."
