    Question Huber "Lemania" pocket chronograph

    Huber "Lemania" Can anyone tell me something about this pocket chronograph? Movement is marked Lemania with number 4342. On the caseback there are 4 inscriptions made by watchmakers: "RW12588", "1167CK180", "570CK180" ,"5|H7568". Is this civilian or military connected watch?

    Huber is now Huber- Bucherer in Munich Bravaria Germany a top adress. https://www.bing.com/maps?&ty=18&q=H...57715&v=2&sV=1 They excist since 1856. They always have had high quality Huber signed watches in their program. THe grandgrandson Martin Huber is also well known in the high end watch scene with his books about Patek Phillipe and A.Lange & Söhne.
    It's not a military piece but a precious toy for people with some money in their pocket and a very good chronograph.

    Not sure of the movement size, but perhaps a variant of the Lemania 13CH.

    bidfun-db Archive: Watch Movements: Lemania 15TL

    To me it looks similar, but not exactly the same as the example in Ranfft's archive, but you could be correct.

    It's helpful to measure the diameter of the movement, this would help distinguish between movements that otherwise look quite similar. For example a 13 lignes movement would be just over 29mm in diameter, and the 15 lignes movement you refer to would be roughly 34mm.

    I've measured it with caliper and the result is ~33.5mm.
