Type:

Analogue
Gender: Gents
Brand: Longines
Movement: Longines Cal 6651 (hi beat)
Case material:

Stainless Steel

 

Here we have a large vintage Longines with a 37mm stainless steel case, hi beat automatic movement and a very clean matte silver crosshair dial.

This dial has a number of features, including a bordered date window at 3 o'clock, applied Longines  and 'Ultra Chron' logo, and a crosshair design.

This offers a very versatile design with some more dressy features such as the applied square hour markers and uncluttered dial, though also some sportier features such as the high beat accurate movement, screw down case back and large size.

The hands, dial and hour markers appear to all be in original condition with some light patina showing on the hands.

The case is a polished stainless steel with the 'Ultra Chron' logo on the back.

The crown is original and sets the semi quick set date and time perfectly well.

We have put this on a quality black leather strap.

For someone looking for a high quality vintage watch with a more modern appearance on the wrist this is a fine choice!

 

Technical Details

This watch uses the Longines Automatic Cal 6651

This has 25 jewels and a 40 hour power reserve (this may differ however due to age and previous maintenance)

Hi beat frequency of 28,800bph.

 

Condition Report

We have given the case a light hand polish to remove micro scratches though due to age some light wear is visible though no dinks or deep scratches are present.

All functions work perfectly well and the movement has been fully serviced by us.

Water resistance is not guaranteed.

The strap is new and unworn.

 

This is on display at the Bridge House Antiques Market though we are also happy to post.
