    Lemania 5100 Hamilton chronographs

    It is an often overlooked fact that Hamilton made a few different chronographs with the indestructible Lemania 5100 movement. I just got one of mine back from the watchmaker this past week, so I thought I would share a few pictures.







    Any other of these great chronographs on the forum?

    Sadly, I don't have any movement pic to offer. The screwed-in caseback uses the Rolex system, and I don't have the proper tools to reopen the watch. That being said, I've seen the movement while the watch was still being serviced, and it is a bog-standard calibre 5100 with a Lemania-signed rotor. Not much to look at frankly, but this movement strengths never were in its looks. Since no one so far has come forward with pictures of another one of these great chronographs, I'll go on with picture of another Lemania 5100 chrono from Hamilton. This one is interesting because it is obviously dedicated to the timing of soccer matches, a bit like Omega's FIFA chrono from 1979.







    Same case as the first chrono in this thread, but with a polished finish, 24 hour bezel, different hands, smaller crystal thanks to the absence of a chapter ring, and more modern crown and pushers.
