    Default Unknown Longines, please help.

    I recently got into Longines watches. The other day I came across a watch I inherited that was my grandfather's only yo be happily suprised it was a Longines.

    The watch is very old, my estimate is about 70 years old. I've attempted to discover the model of the watch, but my research has turned up fruitless. Perhaps someone here can help me.

    The watch is 14K gold, with a square case. The dial appears to be a silver color with four diamonds at the 12, 3, 6 and 9 markers. The other markers are arrow-looking lines. Surrounding the markers are a set of approximately 6-8 lines running parallel to the case. The Longines logo is below 12 o'clock, and the name "LONGINES" is written below the logo. There are only hour and minute hands in silver.

    If this does not help determine the model and history of the watch, I'd be happy to send in a picture. Please let me know if you can help me.

    Please send pictures of the watch including the movement. Otherwise, it is impossible to provide you with any meaningful information.

    Default More Info

    The movement is mechanical, but I have little other information because I haven't opened the watch.

    Default It's a Coronation IV

    I found your exact model on vintage watch resources.
    It's called the Coronation IV and dates to around 1950.
    Cool-looking watch.
    What are its measurements---- preferably in mm?
