This is a very attractive and rare vintage Longines watch.  It has a very attractive and extra clean military style factory original dial.  Very seldom will you come across a Longines dial of this era looking this great.  Professionally serviced Longines caliber 23M manual wind movement with serial number 7008685 dating this watch to 1945.  The serviced movement is in excellent condition.  The solid stainless steel case is in unpolished original condition.  Case model is 23097 (605) and measures 33.5mm across excluding the crown by 42mm lug tip to lug tip.  The luminous on the dial and hands are original, but of course no longer glow.  The watch will come with a brand new crystal.  The crown is unsigned but original to this watch.  It will come with a brand new 18mm fabric over genuine leather strap.  Rare and well preserved vintage Longines similar to this is scarce in today's market.  Wrist size in photo is 6 inches.  It is a smaller size watch made for a smaller size wrist or for someone who is looking for a WW2 era timepiece or a Longines collector looking to add another rare find to his/her collection.
