Today's offering showcases this stylish ultra-thin retro Longines with royal blue dial and loads of diamonds. It has a classic vintage design and measures only 7mm thick.
The centerpiece of the watch is its large full diamond bezel, which has been previously set by a jeweler. The lugs have been modified to accommodate it.
It presents gorgeously and has just finished a true expertly done restoration. It is fully Longines down to the original hands and signed crown. Its dial has been meticulously restored - the printing could pass as Longines factory done to the naked eye.
Powering it is its original caliber L647.3 Longines handwound movement which is pristine. It is about as clean as they come.
It has just been freshly fully overhauled by a Master Watchmaker. We have timed it in five chronometer positions and it continues to run very true, keeping chronometer grade time in four positions. For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new leather strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a full one-year warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
A luxurious classic Longines from the '70's that looks like new on the wrist!
