This manual wind, stainless steel cased men’s Longines has the desirable blue dial.  Model reference 1500.


The serial numbers on Longines of the seventies didn’t always run consecutively, so it is hard to be 100% precise.  The movement in this watch was designed by Longines sister company, Record, circa 1970 so we are suggesting it is likely this watch was made in the subsequent years.


This is a wearable vintage Swiss watch at an affordable price.  Let’s start with the bracelet.  Made by Speidel USA it is the stretch type we all remember.  Some people love the look of these bracelets, and the ease of putting one one (especially if you have limited mobility in your fingers) – but some people will complain about them pulling hairs from your arm.  The bracelet can be swapped for a leather strap if preferred, so the decision is yours.  The bracelet has been cleaned in our ultrasonic bath.  The watch case is the C-Case design, which inherently have very strong lugs.  The case does have several marks and is unpolished.  The movement is the Longines 706, based on the Record 650, which is all working well and is a pleasure to wind.  The dial is overall nice, but there is a loss of paint near the 8 marker and a dot near the 10 marker.  The acrylic glass is new.

This watch will be supplied with our branded presentation box and our Certificate of Authenticity.

From 1st September 2021 we will be planting a tree for every watch we sell, working with the International Tree Foundation (Est 1922) to make this business positive on carbon.  By buying anything pre owned you are effectively reusing what already exists, but this takes it further and makes us feel good.
