    An atypical Longines design. Personally I think in this era they were the most interesting large watch company in Switzerland.
    "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!

    Probably the highest quality watch company during this era for its pricepoint. Better than Omega and certainly Rolex at that time.

    I agree with you. Until the the second world war Longines use to produce extremely high level timepieces ..........
    Another info about my new Longines : from Saint-Imier archives "It was invoiced to Messrs Ostersetzer in Milano, who were for many years our agent for Italy, on the 11.12.1941."
