Here is a fabulous, all original Longines Ultra-Chron from 1975 in a large size for the era. The brushed silver dial is in very fine condition, with a steel Longines logo and Ultra-Chron emblem and strip steel hour markers with black contrast, wider markers at the poles. There is a small spot just below the center of the dial towards 4 o’clock. The baton hands with the original black contrast are in very fine condition. The steel framed window at 4:30 displays the date, which can be semi quick-set by repeatedly turning the hands through midnight, then backwards through 22:30 and then through midnight again.


The stainless steel cushion shaped case with embedded lugs and the original crown is in fine condition, with a sunburst face and polished sides. It shows some overall wear, most pronounced towards the lugs. The radially brushed stainless steel case back is in very fine condition, with light overall wear.


The original stainless steel Milanese bracelet is in very fine condition, with a golden Longines logo on the fold clasp and only light overall wear. It is large enough for moderately big wrists. Make sure the specific bracelet size listed in the details is not too small for your wrist.


Inside the watch, Longines high grade 6651 movement beats strongly and accurately to within about +-10 seconds per day. The watch was fully serviced in April 2024 and comes with a 12 month warranty on its proper mechanical functioning.


The Ultra-Chron is one of Longines’ most iconic models and it is easy to see why with this watch. It looks fabulous on the wrist with the wonderful dial, cushion shape and original bracelet. It will add to any vintage collection while it can also be used as a daily driver.


Our watches are delivered in a luxury wooden watch box, fully serviced with a 12 month warranty that covers the mechanical functioning of the watch under normal use. We offer 14 days full return rights and are very proud of our reputation for outstanding customer satisfaction.
