    First, I have found this one @ebay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Longines-C...986913?hash=item25f27bc261:g:4CQAAOSwCxdaxXoyPurchases made through these links may earn this site a commission from the eBay Partner Network

    I have seen yellow and rose gold version of this (owning a RG one too), but have never seen such a combination - this dial with SS case. And this is supposed to be a white gold solid dial? Oh, and that "Chronometre" is a nice twist also. What do you think?

    Also, I have this one under question:

    Is this dial a redial? What are your opinions here?

    I believe the second one to be a redial.

    As to the first, and especially at the asking price, I would confirm with Longines. That would require that the seller provide a photo of the inside of the case back and movement serial number as well. The dial looks good to me.

    I also have the same doubt, never seen such a combination of "automatic" and "conquest" letterings.

    About the first one, I have found some more infos from their Japanese site: Ref .9024 5 207.

    Just sharing, no intentions to buy, since the asking price is high for me.

    To add a bit of information, I once owned this genuine cal. 340 Flagship Chronometer, and it had a different (fine) regulator...

    @Tony C. Is that not the standard regulator on the cal. 340?

    Yes, relative to other 340s. But I might expect the (cal. 291) Japanese example to have a different (i.e. finer) one if it is a chronometre.

    I wonder. The chronometer version of the cal. 22AS had a similar regulator whereas cal. 431 chronometers have finer ones, like the cal. 340 above.

    I'm not at all certain, as we see so few of these.

    My fingers were hovering above the buy/offer button, but that was before I noticed that it’s not white gold :(

    Nice watch though.

    Or even platinum, which is quite usual for Japanese market. I have seen vintage platinum IWC pieces from this market also.

    With a bit of research, it is on my basket for -1000€ of Ebay's price, unfortunatelly it is still over my actual budget for watches :whistling:

    Well, I wish I could but I've just lost my job so priorities have changed.
    I just wanted to say that it can be had for a better price, if price is an obstacle of course
