The present lot is one of the nicest examples ever produced for a 1940s chronograph. The three bodies, solid stainless steel case with a snap on the back is a perfect representative of the unmistakable “Longines-style”. It is nicely preserved in original conditions and presents a stepped flat bezel, two very unusual tilting mobile lugs and rectangular chronograph buttons. The caliber is the famous 13ZN rhodium plated with self-compensating Breguet balance spring and fly back mechanism. The sophisticated silvered dial is a real joy for the eyes for its two-tone layout, its intricate composition with external pulsation scale, inner scale for chronograph, Arabic numbers and the two subsidiary counter for constant seconds and 30 minutes registration. Absolutely remarkable for quality and features, this watch is a real dream for any Longines collectors.
