The use of stainless steel instead of noble materials for the construction of the present 38 mm case absolutely does not reduce the beauty of this watch. This three-body case specimen with concave bezel, lapidated lugs, snap – on case back surprise for its quality and elegance. The brushed dial has a fantastic gilt color with painted Arabic numerals subsidiary dials for the 30-minute register and for the seconds, outermost black minutes/seconds track and blue steel feuille hands. Perfectly preserved with crisp edges this watch is for sure one of the nicest exponent of the Longines production of chronographs bearing the always appreciated and very sought after by collector caliber 13ZN. Accompanied by the Longines Extract from the Archives confirming case, movement, production and subsequent sale on 14 July 1948 to the company Bessire, which was at that time our agent for Belgium.
