    I don't have any yet, my incoming El Primero will be my first ...

    Please post plenty of pics of your high-beat beauties. Hoping to see a lot of lovely vintage pieces. Strictly mechanical, of course

    Only one - a late 60's Longines 18K Ultra-Chron caliber 431:
















    It passed the 30 meter water resistance test a couple months ago:

    I usually don't care for gold watches, but that is top notch.

    Here you go. The Zenith AF/P with the original caliber 405 movement running at 36,000 bph. Borrowed picture, but I bought the watch. It's on a Zenith croco deployant strap. The very large screwdown crown doubles as a channel changer on this tv styled watch.

    Pardon my ignorance -- the Longines movement is an in-house one? Educate me.

    No worries - nobody can know everything. Ask me about vintage Rolex and I wouldn't be able to complete a sentence with what I know.

    Yes, the 431 is an in-house caliber. Here's a little blurb I did on each of the Longines in-house automatics up to the quartz revolution: http://www.watchtalkforums.info/foru...utomatics.html. To get more on the 431, click on "430". Besides a couple notes on the movement's specs, I added a link that about covers it all. There was no point rehashing what was said on Montresuisses.blogspot because they covered it completely.
