  • CASE: ERGONOMIC ELLIPSOID SOLID STEEL CASE MEASURING IN AT 39mm NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL SIGNED CROWN. THIS IS VERY LATE 60s/EARLY 70s ERGONOMIC WATCH DESIGN REMINISCENT OF THE OMEGA DYNAMIC. THIS HUGS THE WRIST NICELY AND WEARS GREAT.

THIS WAS LONGINES SPIN ON THE HI-BEAT 36K BPH MOVEMENT WHICH MAKES FOR AN ULTRA SMOOTH SWEEP OF THE SECONDS HAND.

    THIS LONGINES COMES ON A COMFY CANVAS STRAP WHICH REALLY WEARS QUITE SPORTY.  THIS MODEL, LIKE THE OMEGA DYNAMIC, MARKED A TURNING POINT FOR WATCH DESIGN: MORPHING FROM THE MORE TRADITIONAL ROUND AND SMALLER CASES OF THE 60s TO THE FUNKIER MORE SPACE-AGE DESIGNs OF THE LATE 60s AND EARLY 70s. THIS REALLY IS A PERFECT EVERY DAY WATCH...A GREAT CONVERSATION STARTER AND A PIECE THAT REALLY INSPIRES A SENSE OF CREATIVITY AND ADVENTURE. LONGINES IN MY OPINION IS ONE OF THE BEST VINTAGE WATCH BRANDS TO COLLECT. THIS PARTICULAR MODEL REALLY PULLS OUT ALL THE STOPS WITH ITS INNOVATIVE HI-BEAT IN-HOUSE MOVEMENT, FUNKY DESIGN, LARGER CASE, AND GREAT POPS OF COLOR.....THIS IS LATE 60s LONGINES AT ITS BEST.
