In 1947 was introduced the 30CH caliber and remained in production for about 20 years when Longines then decided to go on to purchase finished movements directly from Valjoux S.A. The present reference 5982/1 is a refined and elegant example of Flyback, characterized by the oversized registers for constant seconds and 30 minutes registration. The Silver dial is in great overall conditions with the double scale in blue and red of a bright color with gold dagger and Arabic numerals and feuille hands. The stainless steel case with a snap on case back is totally crisp and fresh, lugs are incredibly sharp and the oval pushers are in almost mint conditions. With the Longines Extract from the Archives confirming case, movement, production and subsequent sale on 1 July 1949 to the company Ostersetzer, which was at that time our agent for the Italy.
