    Super nice, colorful execution with red and blue Tachy and Tele scales and rose gold indexes

    Sharing this incoming after a long and tedious search. Apologies to the many sellers, and major thanks, for time, patience and advice!!

    One in One out. Still selling the 18k flyback chrono ... ::rimshot::

    Not perfect by a long shot though this is quite okay ... love how different angles show this sun-kissed Dial

    I think they are related to a retailer in South America.

    Lovely piece.

    Three stars are supposed to be from Peru. At least I’ve heard it said, and then all original examples seem to check out.

    According to Longines, this chrono has a manually wound mechanical movement, caliber 30CH invoiced on 30 Nov ‘65 to Welsch, its agent for Peru. Hence the 3 stars.

    Does Longines themselves confirm the three stars do pertain to the Peru delivery? That would be cool.

    Quote from Longines -

    Your Serial number “identifies a wrist-chronograph in stainless steel bearing the reference 7413. It is fitted with a Longines manually wound mechanical movement, caliber 30CH and was invoiced on 1 October 1965 to the company. Welsch, which was at that time our agent for Peru.

    The 3 stars identify watches sent to our South America market”
