Hi there,

I'm after some help if possible. I've inherited a Longines watch but can't identify it. Do any of your experts have any ideas?!

Pictures as follows: IMG_6710.jpg IMG_6707.jpg

Many thanks! :thumbup:

Hi. That's a late 60's or early 70's watch. It was sometime around 1973-ish (give or take a year) that the word "waterproof" was no longer allowed to be used so it has to be before then. It's a manual wind movement inside. If you can have a watchmaker take off the back, there will be a 4 digit number on the inside of the case back which is the reference (model) number and a serial number on the movement. Get us a picture of the movement clear enough to read the serial number and we can tell you what year it was most likely made.

Many thanks - that's really useful.

Any idea of value on this? Not thinking of selling it but would be good to know!

Depending on the movement it's powered by, a watch like that in unserviced condition might sell for $125 - $200. It has more value to you as an heirloom though.
