    I need some info about this Longines ultra chron

    hello,
    Firstly I'm sorry because my english is very poor.
    I have this marvellous watch:





    But I don't know anything about it. Obviously, I know the brand, and I have owned a couple of modern Longines, but this vintage is special for me and i would like something more.

    I'm not a handy man, and I am not able to open the watch to show you the movement but, may be, you could tell me something about without open it, couldnt'you?
    What is it's movement? When was it made?
    thanks in advance

    Longines started to make these around 1967. Yo have a very nice looking model. You cant open this watch except with a special wrench so dont try. It is a hi-beat movemnt cal. 431 that beats at apprx 36,000 times per hour. The thing you should know about this watch is that it needs to be lubricated properly with special oil or it can cause extra wear on the movement. These are becoming more collectable than hey have in the past although it is still not too often an ultra-chron comes up on the ebay site.

    There ae a few other members here with ultra-chrons too. Here is a quick shot of mine:
    :ROLEX OMEGA LONGiNES ♦ SEIKO Aquadive ♦ ELGIN ♦ hamilton O&W imexZodiac......

    Vintage is full of special watches and, yes, this is one of them. Good catch!
    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    It might also be a 664x or 665x inside - check your thread in the Longines Forum
