Maintaining its superb condition, there are no visible signs of restoration or blemishes, attesting to the watch’s impeccable preservation over the past 58 years, which is rare for a tool watch like this.
The coveted super compressor case has effectively protected the watch from water and dust, resulting in an impeccable dial and movement. The screw down case back has been closed tight by a certified watch maker.
Both the lume on the dial and the original hands exhibit a warm patina, retaining their full presence.
Featuring a striking glossy black gilt dial, this element adds to the overall desirability of this rare reference.
The stainless steel case remains unpolished, retaining its thickness and robustness as a testament to the care of this timepiece. While the original crystal bears some very light scratches, they are hardly visible to the naked eye.
The Cal. 290 movement is as clean as can be, running well and keeping accurate timekeeping.
The watch is accompanied by its Longines extract from the archives indicating that this piece was delivered to Italy on June 11th 1965.
