Can someone tell me which Lemania movement is the VC 30050 based on?

I have been poking around web and some forums for close to 45min and couldn't find anything. Most of the time the discussions just point to it's a Lemania movememnt. Would like to read up more about that movement.

 

 

thanks

It was produced in the 1990s using VC cal. 1760.  I have never heard anybody say it was based on Lemania ebauche.

I would have guessed that if it is not a VC design, than it would have been based on a JLC.

Would be fascinated to know who designed cal. 1760

I came across it on another forum and it was Alex who said it. I think he was helping out another forum member with regards to some info. But he only mentioned that it was a twin barrel Lemania without mentioning the exact caliber. I would trust Alex totally if he said it's Lemania, or even if it's a goat. :)

It was an exclusive development by Lemania for VC but based on a modified Lemania 187
