    Help me identify this Longines Five Star

    Looking for some help for a friend of mine who received this watch as part of an inheritance and knows that I'm into watches. Unfortunately I'm really not into vintage and can't really tell him anything he doesn't already know.

    Anything that anyone can help with is appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    Mike

    The 5 star automatic Admirals were made from the early/mid 60's through the early 70's. The day/dates were usually caliber 50x (507 or 508) which is based on the Record caliber 1958. Longines acquired Record in 1961. A no date version like that may have a caliber 34x or 35x (the x would be a 0 or 2) which is a superior movement. It takes a special tool to open that up - the bezel comes off, then the crystal, then the movement pops out the front.
