Vintage Longines ‘Jumbo’ (42mm) Manual Wind wristwatch c.1937
We have taken in this interesting vintage Longines manual-wind wristwatch. Featuring an oversized (42mm) case which we believe to have military associations due to the welded lug bars. Inside sits a Longines-signed 17 linge manual wind calibre Ref. 37.9 that would have most likely been used in pocket watches of the period. Case and bezel are chrome-plated brass. Watch is mechanically excellent, supplied with a black leather strap and comes with our one year warranty from date of purchase.
