Longines launched the Oposition range (not Opposition for some reason?) in 1999 as a secret design ready for the Millennium.  Model number L3.617.4.72.6


From the serial number on the case back we can accurately date this watch to being sold by Longines on 7th January 2002, which has been confirmed by the Longines factory.


The Longines 263 quartz movement is a branded version of an ETA quartz, so reliability and service levels should not provide any issues.  The dial and movement is cased in a slender stainless steel case, yet still has some depth – the way the minute and hour markers stand out is exceptional in such a slim case.  The skeleton hands still provide good contrast to make the watch easy to read, and the crown is the original signed item.  The case and bracelet are unpolished but retain their sharp edges, as designed.  The bracelet has been shortened, but links for this watch are still available on eBay quite easily if required.  The sapphire crystal is unmarked.

This watch will be supplied with our Certificate of Authenticity.
