Longines is known for creating some of the most technically innovative and attractive timepieces in the world. Once worn by Humphrey Bogart, Richard Byrd, and Charles Lindbergh, these pieces are sought after by collectors, celebrities, and anyone desiring to wear a very fine wristwatch.
The wristwatch showcased in this offering is a prime example of a 70's retro Longines Admiral dress watch. Large and striking it features a massive 42mm wide case, striking silver and blue dial with perfectly toned luminous, high-grade automatic Longines movement, and original Longines bracelet.
The watch itself is in gorgeous condition and presents as just short of mint. There is one area of small scratches on the bezel by the crown that didn't show up in the photographs. The bracelet has one ding in a link and light wear at the end of the clasp - the rest of the bracelet is just short of mint.
The watch is running true. Included with the purchase is a 90 day international warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
