Manufrance Luminor

The first models of Sem Kim Luminor are engraved "LUMINOR" on the cache of the view counter. Those afterwards will only be identified by a medallion.

For the construction of his first Reyna-Cross, M. Paul Royet had manufactured some parts by  Manufrance. In addition, while the distribution of all the SEMM production was entrusted to the Société-Photo-Rex of Mr. Grange, Mr. Royet had kept the exclusivity of the sales to Manufrance. (The SEMM / Photo-Rex distribution agreement stopped at the Liberation).

Manufrance also sold classic Kim Sem, but with the "Luminor" leather case and the "Luminor" user's guide
