Simple and elegant, what more can I say. Longines is a brand that has been around for a long time and has featured in many sporting events as an official timekeeper. Unlike today’s watches with all the bells and whistles, there was a time when less was more and that is very clear with this 1980s piece. It has been crafted in a gold plated steel case with a stainless steel case back, the case measures 32mm in diameter and 34mm from lug to lug, not as big as today’s men’s watches, so may suit a lady too. The back is pristine, the serial number evident is #25148366. The white dial is clean and simple, with Arabic markers and black hands. The crown is original gold plated and features the logo. The precise Longines L150.2 Quartz movement works as it should and keeps perfect time. The crystal is mineral and is in good condition. The original strap had to be replaced, we used a black genuine leather bracelet which is new and measures around 7.2” or 19cm approximately. The watch comes without box or papers, but a gift box will accompany it. It has not been pressure sealed, so water resistance cannot be guaranteed.
