ANOTHER GREAT RAF WW2 WATCH FROM TIMEISPRECIOUS! A NICE EXAMPLE OF THIS RARE AND SOUGHT AFTER WRIST WATCH! This superb Longines military wristwatch has a its alloy case with a stainless steel back. The case shows light wear and tear commensurate with its natural aging. The bezel has a some normal wear related nicks to its edge.
I can see no noticeable dents or dings. The back of the case is engraved with the letters 6B/159 and numbered 1252/43. The inside of the case back is fully signed by LONGINES. The case measures 3.2cms (32mm) across excluding the crown. This is a lovely original military FULLY SIGNED LONGINES dial which is typical of this type of rare watch.It is in excellent condition with just a light patina, some light abrasions between 10 and 12 oclock and the normal age related spots and marks. It has Arabic numerals which are legible and show no major wear (10pm shows slight loss to the finish which is a good sign of originality). It is signed with the word'LONGINES' an Swiss made to the bottom of the dial. The dial has a blued steel centre second dial which is original and is in very good condition.
The hour and minute hands are original too and are blued steel and are in excellent condition. This lovely dial has a black'railway' outer minute track.The plastic crystal is in good condition. This is a genuine LONGINES 12.68N 16 jewel manual wind movement. It is in working order and has kept good time as tested over a 24 hour period. There is some loss of the gold colored plating to some of the movement edges. The movement has been timed and oiled. It winds and sets smoothly. As always a full service would be recommended for continuing working order and optimum timekeeping. The movement is numbered 647xxxx dating it to circa 1943. It is fully stamped'LONGINES' and'SWISS MADE'. The crown LOOKS ORIGINAL and is in good condition. This beautiful watch has a brand new 16mm leather black band fitted. The band is in excellent condition and has never been on a wrist. The band and watch measure approx 9 inches in total length, so I would estimate that the watch will fit up to an 8 and 3/4 inch wrist comfortably. THIS IS A FANTASTIC AND SOUGHT AFTER LONGINES RAF WRISTWATCH IN LOVELY CONDITION. I describe all of my items to the best of my knowledge.
