About this watch

Originally delivered to Ostersetzer in Italy on April 22nd, 1949, this stunning example demonstrates perfectly why Longines were regarded as second to none in terms of design and quality at producing not only some of the most highly regarded chronographs of the day but also excellent time only oversize pieces such as this fine example.

At 37mm the stainless-steel case has remarkable presence and yet at only 11mm thick it also sits discreetly under the cuff whilst the very slim bezel only adds to the appearance of the watch seemingly increasing its overall size.

Inside the case sits a perfect crisp white dial set off with the original blue steeled handset

The watch runs on the famous cal 12.68N manual winding movement which is the same amazing condition as the rest of this stunning piece.
