    Very unusual Longines watch, 1966? Unique, thoughts?

    Check this out, I bought this for $100 and had second thoughts after I bought it. I thought it was some odd custom job somebody did, but boy I was wrong. I was planning on returning it but not anymore lol. I personally wasn't crazy about it but it has grown on me after wearing it around for a little. Here is the only other one I could find online Rare Unusual 1966 LINEN LONGINES 370 Gold Vintage Retro MINIMALIST MIDSIZE Watch | eBay Mine runs great, could still probably use a COA however. What do you guys think about it haha? I can't wait to email Longines about it and get more info from them, they have the best customer support around for vintage watch info!

    Well, it may be unusual, but apparently it's not unique.

    Reminds me a little of one I picked up a year or so ago. Different shape but same inner and outer dial and also has a 370 movement. Hands a bit different. I never did check with Longines on a datel.

    Very odd and weird but such a pleasure to look at it for some reason :D
    It just screams "I don't give a flying fricadel!"
    Chaos is my focus

    Nice condition. Seen the design before in round and squared shapes. Good that it still has the original hands

    Has the correct LXW markings on the movement for Wittnauer USA imported Longines so looks all good
