    I have never seen a Longines movement like this. It is special and I wonder if Longines actually did the bridging.

    Longines will give you the original sale information if you can find the serial number... unfortunately I see none (case serial numbers are not usually useful). Maybe it is under the dial?

    Beautiful watch... I hope you get it serviced so it will live a longer useful life.

    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!

    I don't see that number on the movement itself. Other sites state in 1870 Longines started serial numbers at 20,000.

    The 4668 is the case number put on case parts to make sure they stay together during assembly. Parts within a pocket watch case are often not interchangeable and require some hand fitting -- hence the serial numbers.
