    It is a watch probably from the late 30s or early 40s. The serial number on the movement will definitively identify the date. Longines can even tell you when and to whom they sold the watch. But I suspect it was to a jeweler named J W Benson in London

    Longines of this era are always nice timepieces. It is well worth a service and a new crystal.

    "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!

    The serial number dates it to around 1937 and staybrite became what we today call stainless steel and was only used in more expensive watches.

    The movement looks to be a Longines 10.68Z making it a rather small watch that was the fashion of the day.
