Markus Lehmann - not a name familiar to me. I was introduced to Lehmann Schramberg watches by a Thai friend and so I started doing some research about the man and the brand.
Lehmann Prazision as it turns out is more associated with ultra-precise mechanisms in the areas of aviation, optics, solar energy and medical technology. Then Lehmann moved into producing parts for watch brands and subsequently established the Lehmann Watch Manufactory in the area of Schramberg, Germany.
What Lehmann wants to achieve is using high precision tools to manufacture watch parts like the dials, hands and base plates. The bridges it seems are made by ultra-precision milling machines that produces accurate engravings. Here I feature the Pointer Date version of the Lehmann Schramberg Intemporal. The watch measures 42mm and this example comes in stainless steel with extended lugs.
In a collaboration with Andreas Strehler, Lehmann developed the recessed crown. When not in use, the crown can be pushed into the case for protection. This development is patent pending. Shown here with the crown popped out.
In line with the precision promise, all Lehmann watches come Chronometer Certified. Watches comes with a stainless steel folding clasp of rather high quality and this watch comes with an alligator strap.
The lugs are also rather special - being integrated into the case and extending out. But that is where I have a beef - they make the watch too big for my tiny wrist and the strap does not wrap well around my wrist.
Overall, it is a well made watch but lacking in emotion. Clinical is the one word I will use to describe the watch. For more information, visit Lehmann's website.
