    New Find! My lovely Longines

    Hey Cats,

    New find, from the same place the Omega and Gruen came from I'm actually more stoked about finding this than the Omega find, go figure eh

    This one was hurting bad but it runs accurately! Needed a new crystal, strap and the case polished as about 70% of the chinzy gold plate was worn away, about 10hrs worth of handwork later I'd say it's good, except for in the fine edges, I left it there so I wouldn't loose the fine detail lines of the case, it actually is pretty hard to see but it's even and looks like it's supposed to look that way. Put a strap on it, movement checks out and is spot on, I was the first into the watch it looks like, no service marks and it was very difficult to get the back off and the movement is pristine. It will go in to have the movement serviced.

    It's a beauty and quite large for the era. Longines 17 Jewel 302 movement, just beautiful really.








    Peace,
    Preston
