Absolutely attractive, this chronograph features the caliber 30Ch, the last movement totally in-house produced by Longines, that from 1947 took the stage as the latest and best chronograph movement manufactured by the Swiss brand. This unusual chronograph wristwatch is distinguished by the very good and original overall condition: the three bodies, solid stainless steel case is in very well-preserved conditions with stepped bezel, snap-on case and stepped fluted lugs. The dial is in matte silver, preserved in surprising conditions with painted Arabic numerals, subsidiary dials for the seconds and the 30-minute registers, 1/5 seconds track, outer red telemeter scale, outermost blue tachometer scale and blue steel feuille hands.
