This Men’s Longines Master Collection Big Date model is still available from Longines dealers, with an RRP of £1,580.  Model number L2.648.4.78.3


Sadly this watch didn’t come with the box and papers, which would have made dating it easy.  But Longines have confirmed that this watch was sold to their South African dealer network in July 2016.


The watch has two sapphire crystal windows, one to see the dial and hands and the other at the back to see the automatic movement.  The silver dial has the Longines barleycorn pattern on it, and the split wheel big date is the predominant feature.  This does make glancing at the date very easy, and has the ability to be quick set.  The blued hands are easy to read in low light but do not have any lume to see them at night.  The new OEM leather strap has the Longines deployant clasp fitted.   Behind the sapphire exhibition window you can see the Longines L607.2 automatic movement, which is a modified 22 jewel version of the ETA 2895.  Unlike an awful lot of modern watches this isn’t too large, neither in case width nor depth, making it very wearable.  And it is a great price!

This watch will be supplied with our Certificate of Authenticity.
