    If the serial number is 7591345 it's from 1948; if it's 7391345 it's 1947. The movement is a 12.68N (introduced in 1939), but appears to have the regulator of a 10.68Z. It's VERY possible Longines interchanged parts on these as they're based on the same plan - just slightly different sizes.

    EDIT - found a picture by member radger of the regulator on his watch - this is what the 12.68 regulator usually looked like:




    Other than that, everything else is 100% standard, even the screw holes. You can tell the difference between the 10.68 and 12.68 models by the location of one or two of the screws.

    You're quite welcome. I have a question for you - do you mind me copying your photos to my reference book? I don't have that case number on file. Could you measure the outermost width of the case without the crown in millimeters? Thanks!

    FOR SURE you can do it!

    About the size, 38mm without the crown.

    If you need something else, send me a private message

    Best regards

    Juan
