The chronograph presented here exemplifies how innovation enhances beauty. This timepiece captivates watch enthusiasts with its special movement, great case, and distinctive dial. It is one of the first Flyback models produced by Longines, powered by the renowned 13ZN caliber. The 35 mm stainless steel case enhances its sporty appeal and reflects the robust design ethos of its era. Featuring massive downturned faceted lugs, a snap-on back, and square pushers, this watch embodies the classic design preferences of its time. The previous owners have preserved it well, showing only signs of normal use and an amateur dedication on the back. The silvered dial, with its charming vintage patina, includes two sub-dials for constant seconds and 30-minute registration, Arabic five-minute divisions, black Arabic and baton numerals, and elegant blue feuille hands. Adding to its functionality and aesthetic appeal, the dial is further adorned with a blue tachymeter scale (base 1000 meters) and a red telemeter scale. These features not only enhance the watch’s utility but also contribute to its distinctive look, making it a highly desirable piece for collectors and enthusiasts alike.
