    Lemania supposely from '30-'40's with funny dial and unknown caliber

    i got this watch on my mind lateley: it's a Lemania. It's sort of confusing to me the mecanism and the dial. They look like they don't fit. What do you think?? Also the font in "Lemania" it's a sort i didn't see before.
    The owner says that it's from '30-'40's, but to me the mecanism it's more likely from the '50's (caliber 3000?) The diameter of the case it's aprox. 38 mm.
    Am I wrong?? please give me some information, if you know :) thank you in advance
    The images are below:

    Looks generally OK. The movement is definitely by Lemania, probably Cal. 3000 series. Only the dial looks iffy. Probably a bad redial, IMO.....

    Thank you. I was hoping somebody knows this kind of dial andd set it chronologicaly, but it seems it's just a bad redial, though it have a font very awkard....

    Well I'm no expert on this watch or movement but looking at the font it could be deco inspired (as the lugs may also suggest) which could also stretch this same style into the 1950's...I have to agree considering the dial anomilies (and the lack of Swiss sign at dial bottom) that it is a old redial but I think kind of funky...
