    ^^ My link to that Wittnauer movement on Ranfft above is broken. Here is a new one:

    I know this thread was placed a good while ago but just to verify the link between Longines and Wittnauer . Wittnauer were agents for Longine watches They bought them in from Longines and sold them in the USA this way they saved on import duties . I have a certificate of authenticity for a 1970 Longines 5 Star Admiral which states that wittnauer was their American agent.

    I find Wittnauer dials and cases from the sixties to be the most daring and innovative ever. Something we could use today.
