The 30CH caliber was equipped on watches with more sporty design if compared to the previous one, following the fashions and demands of the post Second World War society. The request of solid cases reliable and with a good aesthetic taste led Longines to create some very sophisticated and dressy versions of wristwatches such as the present wristwatch. This lot is a reference 7415-1 and has been manufactured in 18k pink gold, in contrast to the preference for steel for that time, and it seems has almost never been worn considering the almost perfect conditions of the circular water-resistant-type case with screw back and two round chronograph buttons in the band. The dial as well is untouched and never cleaned with silvered brushed color, applied gold baton numerals, Arabic five minute divisions, outer red telemeter and blue tachometer scales, two subsidiary dials for constant seconds and 30 minutes register. As previously said, it is equipped with the caliber 30CH. With the Longines Extract from the Archives confirming case, movement, production and subsequent sale on 4 July 1968 to the company Binda which was at that time our agent for Italy.
