Ref. 6666 is an especially handsome Longines model with a crisply cut case, slightly flaring lugs and a bold chamfered bezel.

Manually wound, the watch is powered by the excellent Longines calibre 12.68Z. Records held at the Longines archives note that this watch was originally invoiced to the firm’s UK agent, Baume, on 2 June 1959. This watch is accompanied by its original blue Longines presentation case with white silk lined interior to the lid and blue velvet fitted pad for the watch.
