Large vintage Longines watch, circa 1972
Vintage Longines watch. Explorer style applied rose gold markers. Rose gold capped case.
A large vintage Longines with a desirable sub-seconds movement.
This watch dates to 1972 and has an all original dial with rose gold coloured Arabic numerals at the 3, 9 and 12 o'clock positions. Most watch collectors refer to this configuration as an Explorer style dial for the similar configuration on the Rolex Explorer.
The watch is fitted with the Longines 17 jewel Calibre 490 movement which is likely one of the last movements to feature a sub-seconds movement. The dial also features a gold metal Longines logo applied in the top half of the dial. The watch was just serviced by my watchmaker and is keeping time and running flawlessly.
The large case is Rose gold capped with a stainless steel back. The case measures 35 mm wide by 41 mm long and is supplied on the buyers choice of a black or brown leather strap.
