Founded in 1832 in Saint-Imier, Longines is the first Swiss manufacturer to manufacture everything in-house, a historic manufacturer with a system called the Manufacture.

In addition, we have established a "brand" that claims high quality by attaching the manufacturer name and logo mark to watches for the first time.

The company name Longines means "a field full of flowers and a stream flowing" in French, and Longines' name is that it established its own factory in an area called "Es Longines", a long and narrow field in Saint-Imier. Is the origin of.

We have the solid technology to develop historic watches such as the world's first chronograph movement, Charles Lindbergh's Hour Angle Watch.

Nowadays, it is a middle class brand along with OMEGA in the Swatch Group, but it has established itself as a luxury watch in Japan in the 1960s.

Longines is often said to be "well-made" in vintage watches, and is especially highly evaluated by watch repair craftsmen.

This watch is a dress watch with a 1975 18K yellow gold rectangle case.

The four corners are not right angles but are gentle but octagonal, but they are almost rectangular cases. The entire case has a vertical hairline finish.

The case size is 27mm in width and 36mm in length including lugs, which is a little big size for a vintage. It's a little bigger than Cartier's tank.

The dial is a champagne gold dial with a vertical hairline finish. It is characteristic that the dial part also has an octagonal shape.

The thin bar index with multi-faceted cut and the hourglass with wings, which is also a symbol of Longines, is a very simple design called applied.

The

movement is equipped with a hand-wound Cal L.847.3.

Longines competed with Omega and IWC for technology in the 60's and 70's machines with a thickness of only 2.5 mm. A high-end machine equipped.

I matched it with a thin and glossy black leather strap.

Longines has obtained an archive abstract. There is a record that it was shipped to Japan in 1975.
