This is one of the most elegant gents watches we have seen. This Longines gents watch dates from the mid-sixties and has a beautiful slim steel case, with silvered dial and tapered ‘alpha’ hands. The watch has a diameter of approx 35mm without crown and lug width of 18mm. The crown is marked Longines. The watch is running well and keeping good time. Longines have confirmed in writing that this watch was manufactured in 1964 and shipped to their Singapore agent, thus:
“Further to your request, we are pleased to provide the information contained in Longines’ handwritten registers.
The original serial number 12’762’478 identifies a stainless steel wristwatch bearing the reference 8888. It is fitted with a Longines manually wound mechanical movement, caliber 30L and was invoiced on 26 September 1964 to the company Maclaine, which was at that time our agent for Singapore.”
