    What longines model is this? Old

    This was my great grandfathers watch and it does not look exceptionally valuable or in good condition. Either way i would very much appreciate any help You could offer. All Google image searches i find no match.

    In all images i see om Google the 12,3,6,9 is usually indicated by numbers and the others Are "pins" while this watch is the opposite.

    More photos would help, including of the back, the inside of the case-back, and the movement. And try to focus on the watch instead of the fingers.

    Movement is indeed a cal 12.68Z as said above, I cannot read the serial number on it so I cannot date the watch (on the movement, just above the "12.68z" engraving, you might wanna share it). The number 6422-1 inside the case back is the reference model of such steel case. A similar reference is the 6666 with claw lugs very much like yours. Also, as you can see there is another number inside the case back, 564, and from the pics you provided there is a match between the caseback and the case itself (same number stamped behind the upper left lug), which is definitely a good sign.
    I think I've never seen a smilar dial with the 12, 3, 6, 9 hour markers. Best thing you can do anyway is to sign up on the Longines website and ask for a certificate at this link: https://www.longines.com/certificate-of-authenticity

    Yeah, the serial number is just a bit too blurry to read, but that will allow you to get a fairly accurate date. As @ErreCi mentioned, Longines will send you some information about the watch, including where it was first delivered to, etc. I have not seen this dial before, but I have no reason to question it, and it's very attractive. From what I can see, the font looks good, the hands are the right size, and the lume in the hands matches that on the dial. The watch looks legit to me, and it's a very nice inheritance. "Valuable" means something different to different people, but this is certainly a collectible watch, and the condition is not bad at all. I would have it serviced and cleaned up a little, but otherwise I would leave it just as it is and enjoy wearing it. You can replace the crystal if the "cracks" bother you, but it's really not necessary.
