    Toughts on 2 new arrivals : Longines and record watches

    Hi everyone,

    I bought 2 new vontage watches on auction this week end.

    I would like to have your thoughts.

    Longines 30 L 37,5 mm steel and pink gold hands circa 1950 caseback and crown not signed but it's normal for this period says the Expert

    Swiss caliber.

    The blue Record diver is very unique. Is the blue crown actually plastic?

    Laikrodukas may be right. Also I'd have serious doubts about a non signed caseback. The crown not being original is a lesser prob. Otherwise it's nice and cal 30L is rightly famous.

    "says the expert"... Who, if I may ask? An unsigned case can mean, that the watch has been originally in a gold case, which has been melted down, and placed in a generic one.
    I would advise you to contact the Longines Heritage department for info. If this watch was sold in Europe (or any other place not being the US), Longines should have a full entry in the archives on it. You will need to provide them with pictures, both of the dial, movement, and case back- both sides of it.
