I just got this vintage Longines (scroll down) today from eBay PowerSeller "cushioncase" (John), who is probably the premier seller of restored vintage watches on eBay.
This extra-long solid gold Longines was made the year invaded Poland (ha-ha...look what appeared when I typed Adolph's last name!). The serial number on the movement dates it to 1939. The case is a "streamliner," which was popular in the late 1930s as aviation played a larger role in Western culture, and streamlined airplanes showed their influence in other designs, including watches.
Although Bogie did not have an endorsement contract with Longines during his lifetime (1899-1957), he did ink one later:
Perhaps my Longines is the watch he wore in this photo...he looks about 40 here (well...almost):
This is a Longines print ad from 1938:
Here is the Longines I picked up at the Post Office today (Saturday). I've been looking for a Longines just like this one for a long time.
Sorry...I got a little self-indulgent with the photos! Mea culpa. :oops:
