HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
We have had confirmation from Longines that this watch, with this serial number, was produced in 1986.
The Charleston range of watches combined retro looks with the quartz movements and thin, small styling that people wanted in the mid eighties. This watch would have originally been marketed as a men’s watch, but now is more unisex in size. The hinged lugs mean it wraps around the wrist nicely, and the thinness of the case means it stays under the cuff at all times unless needed. The dial harks back to early trench watches, with the sub seconds, roman numerals and leaf hands. The leather strap is the original Longines item, complete with signed buckle. The movement is Longines calibre 976, a 13 jewel quartz movement which is working perfectly. We will install a brand new battery before sending the watch out to the new owner.
This watch will be supplied with our branded presentation box and our Certificate of Authenticity.
