In the 1940´s there was a huge demand for durable and reliable watches for the troops in the second world war. Longines has admirable history in the watchmaking industry, and this piece is a great example of from the manufacturer that does well what it was designed for. Durable stainless steel case houses beautiful Longines cal. 12.68N and highly legible dial and hands inside it. This veteran has now been professionally maintained and called for duty again and is ready for action.
The watch comes with brand new nato strap and Longines vintage buckle attached to it. Longines blue service box and our service letter are also included.
