    Oh Sorry

    I was a little bit insecure as newbie in this forum.

    Thanks for the fast answer

    I noticed that I haven't posted on this thread in a while.

    Since the last time, I've had a few more Longines acquisitions:

    1936 Driver's watch with flexible lugs:

    Early trench watch with 0-size 1904 dated Lingines movement mated to American made sterling silver case:

    1957 Longines All-Guard with unusual black dial:

    And the latest, early 1970's 18K Ultra-Chron Chonometer:

    Take care all,

    Another one of my "Fab Suisse" dial Flagships. This one with pink gold hands and markers, a contrasting look that I like very much in steel cases.

    Yes, because he's in line after me...... and probably a few others..... besides waiting for you to even consider selling it. :p

    You've got to be kidding, There's a 'line'?! That means the youngest guy 'may' get it if he outlives the others, from what I gather, and then, they might have to be mentioned in the will? PM SENT!!

    Very recently bitten by the Longines bug, bought the Twenty-Four Hours reissue on the spot. Date aperture bugs me but I couldn't walk away from it.

    How does it feel on the wrist? 47 mm is a big watch.

    It's big no doubt but the caseback isn't perfectly flat so I never feel the watch clinging. And despite it's size and being made of steel, it's not a very heavy watch to begin with. The strap is also ridiculously soft and comfortable. The only genuine complaint I have is for the position of the date window.
