All original, freshly serviced and working perfectly: a vintage Swiss Made Longines Ultra-Chron wristwatch with reference 7950. It features a 37mm 18k solid yellow gold case, which can be considered fairly large for its age. The dial features a subtle gold tone sunburst finish, with a calendar window at the 3 O'Clock position. Polished and lumed stick shaped hands indicate the time on raised gold tone indices, combined with black crosshair lines to create a stunning vintage sector dial.

Inside we find a very intriguing Swiss Made Longines Cal. 431, an automatic movement with a much higher beat rate than your average watch: the Ultra-Chron was one of the earliest watches to operate at 36,000 bph at a time when the standard was just half that. The movement was completely stripped down, cleaned and lubricated, and is working perfectly. The watch in its entirety was lovingly restored with eye for authenticity: the case was cleaned but not polished, to maintain its sharp edges and lines. The crystal is brand new and free from scratches. The crown does not bear any logo, and was most likely replaced at one point in its life. It is however a perfect fit for the case.

The watch is in decent condition considering its age, with visible yet minimal wear marks to its case. The dial has aged particularly well, with no real degrading to speak of. Please study the pictures in this listing well: they show the watch in the condition that it is in, with no digital enhancements to make it look better than it is. We are sure that you like honesty, and so do we. The watch comes fitted to a dark brown genuine leather strap with generic gold tone buckle, ready to wear. Sold as a watch only: sadly no paperwork or original box are accompanying this piece.

Your new timepiece will be packaged with great care, and will be shipped out as fast as possible. We usually ship the same day your payment comes in, and provide full insurance as well as a tracking code for all of our packages. If you have any questions regarding the item or our services, please do not hesitate to reach out. We'll gladly assist as soon as we get the chance!
