Longines Ref. 7912 -4 steel vintage wristwatch, circa 1968
A stainless steel manually wound centre seconds wristwatch with date
This is a relatively unusual Longines model with a sharp, tonneau-shaped design. The upper case has no separate bezel which gives the watch a sleek design and the polished chamfered edges accentuate the watch’s crisp, linear layout. In lovely condition, the case has not been polished during servicing in order to maintain its well-defined angles and edges, there are therefore some light scuffs and scratches to the surface.
