This Vintage Longines 13ZN is solid 18k. gold and all original dating to 1940. The case measures 34.25mm. and 10mm. thick. The dial is completely original-evenly aged with the original blued steel hands still present. The 13ZN in-house LONGINES manual winding movement was scrupulously cleaned and and working superbly. The crown was replaced with a signed LONGINES (normally these were plain crowns). The 18k. gold case has matching serial numbers to the movement. With the aid of Eric Wind from Hodinkee.Com, Eric obtained the following information directly from Longines: “Originally, the serial number 6’039’327 identifies a wrist-chronograph
in gold 18 ct, fitted with a mechanical manually wound movement,
caliber 13ZN. It was invoiced on 14 June 1941 to the company Zivy,
which was at that time our agent for Mexico.”
LONGINES chronographs with the in-house movements are important and highly sought-after by vintage watch collectors worldwide. I highly recommend this investment grade LONGINES. Bankwire please.
