This is a beautiful Longines 14K gold vintage man's wrist watch with matching Pontiac flex band. Based on the serial number ( 6456865) which is etched inside the back of the case, the watch was manufactured in 1942 or 1943 and has Swiss movements. The case is just under 1 inch square. The hours on the face are marked with red jewels (rubies or garnets) except for the quarter hours which are marked with diamonds except for the half hour which is marked with the second hand. It is a manual wind and does run. Based on the fact that I have searched the web extensively to locate this same watch and have not located a single one, this must be a rather rare/limited edition. Since the watch belonged to an uncle who passed away in 1970 it has not been worn for over 40 years but is in very good condition. I am considering selling the watch but would like to have an idea about its value before placing it for sale. I would appreciate any input that anyone had about this watch.
