The 13ZN movement that Longines introduced in 1936 is probably one of the most important and well-known chronographs mechanisms ever produced by the Swiss brand and by the entire watch industry. From this movement were then developed the 530 and 30CH calibres, and the latter equips this Flyback Chronograph in steel here offered. The novelty that this model, produced from the early 1960s until 1969, offered was the quick resetting and running with the push of one button, which is especially useful when timing multiple evens in quick succession. The conditions of this watch are amazing with the silvered dial which is gaining a golden color that matches perfectly with the golden baton indexes and hands and the 3 stars applied at 6 o'clock. The blue, red and black colour of the multi scale crowd the edges of the dial but leaving free space to the central part. The case is in good overall conditions and the caseback engraving is still legible. for a similar model please also see the lot 206.
