    Info on this Longines?

    Hi All:

    A friend of mine has a vintage Longines he's considering selling and since I'm the "watch guy" in the group, he brought it to me.

    I'm eventually going to post it for him in the Sales Corner, but I can't even tell him what it is or it's potential value. I don't collect Longines or vintage, so I'm posting it here in hopes to learn something and report back to him.

    This is not a "for sale" post and it's not yet even for sale. He's just asking me for help with what he owns and it's value.

    It's SS and says "Longines Automatic". It's running, but I don't know how well. It's been serviced about 5 years ago. the back says "Use All Proof Wrench 1200".

    The band is a cheap Hirsch.

    Any ideas?

    - Mike

    Probably a mid to late 50s longine auto in nice shape that would most likely sell anywhere from a low of $150 to $300. Do a search of this forum for 'longines automatics' and you'll find a member has posted a tone of info on all movements.

    Da is correct on price - they usually sell for $150 to maybe $300, most times around $200 to $230. An unserviced watch fetches less obviously. It's a 60's piece judging by the fonts, and the subdial seconds on an automatic means it should be a 19A or most likely a 352 inside. The All-Proof or Admiral wrench markings mean it's a front loading watch (bezel and crystal come off to remove the dial and movement), which was used primarily with the 34x and 35x series when the movement is an automatic.

    Yeah, well I already PM'ed him.


    Forgot to add that those All-Proof front loading cases weren't offered until the very late 50's, just about when the 19A series was being replaced by the 29x and 34x/35x so the odds are getting better that the watch houses a 352.
