Longines chronograph (ref 6552-3)

£ 3,750

This is a super Longines chronograph from 1962, it is powered by Longines in-house 30CH chronograph movement, which is widely regarded as the best manual wind chronograph movement ever made. It's certainly the nicest stock finishing on a chronograph movement that I've ever seen - indeed the level of finish is extraordinary - the steel work is beautifully grained with the edges broken and polished.

The original silvered dial is in very good condition - it has aged gently and the applied steel hour markers really enhance the appearance and the quality of the dial.

The watch is a great size at 38mm - it's got a good presence on the wrist, without ever feeling too bulky or heavy. The stainless steel case has been lightly polished at some point in it's life, but retains the distinctive of the original shape, especially the detailed flowing shape of the lugs. It has a snap back and the original signed Longines crown.

Longines confirmed the details of the watch as follows: "The original serial number 11'053'119 identifies a wrist-chronograph in stainless steel bearing the reference 6552. It is fitted with a Longines manually wound mechanical movement, caliber 30CH. It was invoiced on 12 July 1962 to the company Danero, which was at that time our agent for Uruguay."

The watch is in good working order, the movement has been serviced recently and time keeping is excellent, with all chronograph functions running correctly. Ready to wear and enjoy!
