1970's Longines Vintage Mens Midsize Ultra Thin Classic Retro Watch - Stainless Steel


Item No. AB24

Today's offering showcases this stylish and ultra-thin retro Longines with two-tone dial and original bracelet. It has a classic vintage design and measures only 7mm thick!

It has fully original parts down to the hands, winding crown and bracelet. The bracelet has an interest design that can be freely sized to accommodate almost any wrist.

A year ago it finished a true expertly done restoration and has only been worn a handful of times since - it presents in gorgeous condition. The case is just short of mint. The dial is a perfect refinishing - it could pass as Longines factory done to the naked eye.

Powering it is its original caliber 428 Longines handwound movement. One of our watchmakers has disassembled it down to its last screw and cleaned and oiled the movement, which is near pristine, making it ready for immediate enjoyment. Please inquire if you would like photos of the inside.

Included with the purchase is a 90-day warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.

A classic Longines from the '70's that looks like new on the wrist!

Longines is known for creating some of the most technically innovative and attractive timepieces in the world.
