⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
I believe Longines marked Dials with 3 stars to symbolise that the Watch was fitted with a high quality movement.
The Dial is in Awesome Vintage Condition, with no marks at all!
You will be very hard pressed to find a better Condition Vintage Watch Dial.
This is the original Untouched 51 year old Dial that left the Longines Factory back in 69.
THIS IS NOT A REDIAL!!!!
Superb Quality EPSA 20 microns Gold Plated Case.
The Case is in very good condition for its age, with one Small ding to the Case 9 O'Clock Side and some minor age related wear to the plating on the lugs, which is par for the course.
The edges are still nice and sharp.
The Case back has benefitted from a VERY light re-brush and Buff to bring it back to life.
Case ref: 8237-4
Case-back markings still highly visible.
Case approx. measures in at:
Diameter with Crown: 36.2mm
End of lug to lug: 41mm
Lug Spacing: 18mm
Hands, Crystal and Crown
Original Handset, in very nice Vintage order.
Original Crown in good nick.
Original Crystal prior to Service was badly Scratched, so our Watchmaker fitted a new Correct Crystal as part of the Service.
On a 18mm Condor alligator calf brown leather strap with gold plated buckle that looks great.
