The Longines here offered is a really fine example of Flyback chronograph with a really unusual case and dial, furthermore, embellished by an historically important caliber. The latter is the iconic 13ZN, one of the most appreciated by Longines’s aficionados. The heavy circular case has been produced in yellow gold: it is of a robust three-piece design of 34.5 mm with a snap on back and carries elongated hooded lugs with stepped edges which add an extra level of sophistication and exclusivity. It has been conserved in exceedingly good conditions with very clean smooth bezel and two rectangular chronograph buttons. The dial is the ultimate rarity with its black color, Arabic numerals, outer railway minute divisions, outer tachymeter scale, two engine-turned subsidiary dials for 30 minutes and constant seconds.
