The present Longines wristwatch is a very unconventional specimen in the world of chronographs considering the very unusual design of the lugs. It is indeed a very fine and gorgeous flyback chronograph realized in 18k yellow gold with a snap on, fully preserved in very good conditions. The main peculiarity of this very watch is the movable and flexible fancy lugs that are able to confer a touch of elegance to this sporty watch. A principle of oxidation is spreading softly all around but the oval case sill maintains its original condition. The argentè dial has with painted luminous Arabic numerals, totalizers for seconds and minutes, an outer telemetry scale and an inner tachymeter spiral one in a blue that matches with the telemetric. The caliber used is the famous and iconic 13ZN. Accompanied by the Longines Extract from the Archives confirming case, movement, production and subsequent sale on 27 October 1937 to the company Perret which was at that time our agent for Brazil.
