Longines Comet Ref. 8475 circa 1970 | steel vintage mystery watch

One of the most creative and eye-catching designs of the 1970s, the Longines Comet is also one of my favourite models of the era. The dial has two rotating discs – a black hour disc to the centre is mounted with a broad luminescent arrow-form pointer which indicates the hours on an off-white chapter ring; minutes are shown via the circular ‘comet’ mounted on the slim black outer disc which points to the minutes calibrated at the dial’s edge. This style of watch is known as a mystery watch since it is not immediately apparent to the viewer how the hours and minutes advance.

In excellent condition, this is a great example of this unusual model.
