This is my first post on this site hopefully the experts out there can help me with some information!
I am a wristwatch collector in particular longines, quite some time ago I aquired a mens 30mm ish 14k gold longines wristwatch in a trench style when I checked the serial number on the movement it dated the watch to 1905 which seemed far to old so I checked it again via ref sites and sure enough it was definitely 1905. My next thought was that it was a pocket or fob watch conversion so I contacted longines to provide info on the serial via their hand written records (what a service they provide) and they identified it as a wristwatch invoiced to turkish agents
I have tried to find info on the first longines wrist watches and have found many quotes of the 1905 date as the fiirst time a longines was cased as a wristwatch but never any information further to that.
Any body that has knowledge of longines first watches advice or information will be very much appreciated
Sorry I dont have any pics of the watch at the moment however will post later if anyone is interested
Thank you for your time and help
