The chronograph offered here in the auction immediately strikes not only for the almost perfect condition of the case but also for the beauty of the unusual tear lugs.

Longines made 13ZN watches in various sizes and styles, the present example is 37 mm with an entirely solid 18k gold case with a snap on back and two buttons to activate the functions of the chronograph square. Clean, geometric and perfectly preserved, this delightful dial champagne presents the two counters for constant seconds and 30 minutes registration, blue steel feuille hands and black Arabic numerals. Accompanied by the Longines Extract from the Archives confirming case, movement, production and subsequent sale on 20 February 1946 to the company Danero, which was at that time our agent for Uruguay.
