Description

This is a beautiful exampel of Longines late 1960s attempt to be on top of the chronograph accuracy game. The first examples were equipped with the cal. 538 which was a converted version of the legendary cal. 30CH. It came with an additional gauge at the tip of the chronograph second hand for more precise time reading.

This watch has just returned from a complete service and comes with 1yr warranty.
