    Default Authentic Flagship or not?

    Hi

    I can see that this is the most common question on the forum and I apologise in advance but is this an authentic Longines?

    Longines male watch | eBay

    back of watch is marked

    serial number 35810163 and the case is marked ‘FLAGSHIP, L4.774.4, REGISTR.MOD, ALL STAINLESS STEEL, SWISS MADE’

    I have emailed Longines (Swatch) customer service but haven't had a reply yet.

    Can anyone help by casting an experienced eye over it please?

    Thanks

    Ulackfocus is our resident Longines expert. But, unless I'm mistaken, that is what's called a frankenwatch...2 or more watches cobbled together to make one. I say this because so far every true Longines Flagship I've seen will say "Flagship" on the dial!

    It's a more modern watch than I'm fluent in. Could be from the Flagship collection but why it doesn't say "Flagship" is beyond me.

    I've never seen a Flagship that did not say 'Flagship' on the face. But, I've seen a lot that people try to sell as Flagships that are not, like that one!

    I stand corrected, modern Flagship watches by Longines DO NOT say Flagship in the face.
