    The end is near!!!

    No, this isn't a religious pitch - I mean the end of the quest for the perfect vintage Longines Flagship. Payment went today for this:




    I've been looking for the perfect caliber 341 version for a loooong time, so long that it worked it's way to the top of my 'most wanted' list. There were a few others in consideration but none were in the condition this was, and the date at 12 was the kicker. Passed on a few caliber 30L models (I've got another series in mind for that movement) and an interesting pair of 18K dialed pieces - one with a 380 and the other with a 341. I did keep the photos of them for posterity, but once this one arrives I might just delete most of them. Now I'll have at least one watch with each generation of automatics from Longines. Some more gratuitous shots from the seller:

    Oh man! That is so perfect tears are welling up in my eyes. It's one of those watches that one can simply stop collecting after getting. (for a while, anyway)

    Well - awesome condition. Worth the wait - and the patience.
