Vintage Longines
« on: March 14, 2017, 01:46:34 PM »
My parents are in town and they gave me some old family heirlooms.
Included was this Longines watch.  Does anyone know much about this one?

They gave you a nice watch   :sm3

Vintage Longines are well made, so not only is it 14k gold but it has what I think is one of their best movements, the Caliber 9L.  I have always thought that the 9L's were just as well made as most Patek and Vacheron movements at the time.  That is a great keeper.

I would probably ditch the stretch band though, those eat gold case lugs for lunch  :o

Thanks Ultra!

What band would you suggest for this?  Was the original band leather or metal?

The original band would have been leather most likely

It's a nice watch and i agree it would look good with a leather strap.
