.... in vintage Longines. This is just out of the box.
It's very late 50's or very early 60's automatic. Neither the seller nor I have opened it up - it's a front loading case and I don't have the tools. My educated guess is that it has a caliber 352 inside, and here's why:
- there were only 4 or 5 automatics with subdial seconds
- the font of 'Automatic' was used on the 19A series and the 34x/35x series from 1952 through 1967-ish
- the front loading All Proof case was introduced in 1958-ish at the tail end of the 19A series' run and were primarily used with the 34x/35x movements
- the propeller hands were staples on the 34x/35x series
- the only movement from the 34x/35x series without a date and subdial seconds at 6 was the 352
If I'm worth my salt with vintage Longines it'll be a 352. If it isn't, I'll post a picture of the movement and admit I stink and need a refresher course, then I'll give away a vintage Bulova to somebody here in a drawing.
