I have this old one on its way from 1921... I hope the postman hurries up....  I have a feeling it will turn out to be a redial but I wanted one of these early cushion shape watches and this seemed a nice example.

Here's mine... Not quite as good condition as others I've seen here! I am way out of my depth with this but it'll be a fun journey finding out!

@Ullevi very nice, is that dial black?

Thanks.

No its grey, sunburst. In the flesh it's pretty striking in a subtle way.

Help me with choosing a new strap for this as the Oem one is too short for my 8"/205mm wrists, would like the same type but happy with croc texture if you think it would go

Nice looking watch.

I have just ordered a lizard strap for my mine. It came with a horrid pound shop type strap; hope the stainless & dark tan will look good on a slim watch.

Hi

So this is my current Longines collection.

The dress watch is approximately a 1946 12.68Z movement and the military is a 1943 12.68N movement.

 

On recite, looking a tad dirty!

This will be my every day watch..

I love to think about the history of this watch, sold in 1943 to the UK MOD, the hands have been lumed after market, with dots of lume at 12/5/10. cased in brass. 

I have my own theories but would like to hear yours, also anyone who might be able to get a proper history on this is more than welcome. Longines have it being sold via their agent in the UK in 1943.

I'm also in need of a case back and crown, the crown should be fairly easy to find, the a brass  snap on case back my prove problematic.

 

Thanks

 

Ben

My two. Silver cushion cased one is from 1931, bought as an absolute wreck and had restored.

The other  from the early 1960s is all original and pristine, it came from a local jeweller who'd had someone bring it in for them to sell, the jeweller said the customer had told them that they'd had the box for it too but had thrown it away! :(

You have it coming from 1921... can I borrow your time machine?? It's somehow tied to your postal system?

How about my original 1960 Nonius in 18K and the re-make from a couple of years ago. Having a machinists background the Vernier scale just turns me on!
