This 1988 Longines men’s watch is clearly inspired by Cartier watches, from the bi metal bezel held by visible screw heads, to the roman numerals.


From the supplied paperwork, which matches the serial number on the case back, we can accurately date this watch to being sold in January 1988.


The Longines 11 jewel L950.2 quartz movement has an unusual arrangement to setting the time.  Pull the crown out to the first position (or knob as the Longines instructions refer to it!) and you just adjust the hour hand in one hour increments, great for frequent travelers.  To fine tune the minute hand you pull the crown/knob to the second position.  Omega did a similar system for the hours, but minutes were harder to adjust.  This is a high end quartz movement that even has Cotes de Geneve striped finish.

The case and bracelet show the usual light scratches that stainless steel always shows.  The gold plated bezel has some deeper marks.  The glass is perfect.  The bracelet is a good length, and has the Longines logo etched on the clasp.  The box is in very good order.  The dial is excellent.
