    Vintage 1950's Longines Automatic 19AS, has it been recased?

    Hi, I would like some help understanding if this Longines is genuine. The watch seems to be in great shape however when I open the back I see the following issues:
    1) Missing screw holding the movement
    2) The inside of the back case does not have Longines or any branding, just Swiss
    3) The back case has just 2115 on it.
    4) Recessed crown unlike this blog post Name:  p1015611.jpg

    I looked at this completed ebay listing for the 19AS movement and see the screw holding the movement there
    This blog past on the Longines 19AS has the same dial but different case, the back is gold etc. (ambwatches dot com/2013/04/09/1950s-longines-automatic-19as/)

    I'm wondering if I should keep it or return it.

    Thanks for your help!

    Why not ask Longines? They will send you historical information from the archives in a few days, and you will know if that movement belongs with that case reference.

    I don't think there is much chance that it is in the correct case. I hope I'm wrong. May I ask where you purchased it?

    @Dan S - Thanks, did not realize that Longines provided this service. I'll reach out to them.

    You will need to set up an account, but then you can enter the case and movement numbers, and upload photos, and they will send you information by email very quickly, usually within a few days. If you give them your address, they can also send you a certificate that has the information from the archives. This is all free of charge.

    It is not the original caseback at least as it says stainless steel.

    There seems to be confusion here due to the way you have posted pics of different watches. It's not overly clear which is your watch and which are from a blog or eBay. It may help to post again showing just your watch.
