With a super stylish dial design comprising Arabic and lozenge-shaped indexes, this model also features its own unique Jamboree logo. The silvered dial retains a good lustre with light oxidation spotting across the surface and the hands. The steel case has a chamfered bezel and interesting multi-faceted ‘twisting’ lugs – there are light scuffs and scratches to the surface.
The Longines Archives confirm that this watch was originally invoiced to their UK agent Baume on 15 June 1962. Co-incidentally this watch was therefore in the same batch as the last Jamboree we sold a couple of months ago which was invoiced to Baume on exactly the same date.
