    I believe that Longines still sells a model of this watch. Virtual Catalogues - Watches - Longines Swiss Watchmakers since 1832

    From time to time I have seen used pieces show up. They are wonderful watches with historical significance. On my grail list since the first time I saw one in a jewelers window in Geneva in 1988.

    No, I´m looking for exactly this model, only . Ref # 5261.4.001. It was built in the 1990´s I believe. It was rather small with ETA 2801.

    It will be a challenge to find that model, but it can be done. You might consider putting out the word with some of the higher end jewelers in your area in case they come across one on a trade or they have a NOS model hiding out in a safe. The other is more of a long shot - estate sales. The longest shot - watch Ebay as they come up once in while.

    It keeps the bezel tight.

    For anyone who is interested, Hodinkee has an excellent article on the backstory and use
    of the Longines Hour Angle watch, designed for his own use, by Charles Lindbergh.
