    Q?: LONGINES 17.89M 19 Jewel Snail Regulator PW

    Hello,
    Today I found this 1925ish Longines pocket watch with what it appears to be a high caliber movement. 17.89 cal, 19 jewels, 5 positions. The case is 14k solid white gold and it runs. The above is about all I know. I see some references to the 17.89M in google but mostly 17 jewels and many without the snail regulator. I would love to know more if anyone has the expertise.
    Thank you!
    John

    Hi John,

    Unfortunately we don't give values here (see stickies for why). But I daresay that someone will be able to give you more info about the snail-regulator, just make sure you have your questions lined up.

    Don't really need a value anyway... more interested in:
    -Info on how this caliber rates compared to others in time period
    -scarcity
    -Any info on snail regulator,
    etc etc.
