Longines chronograph (ref 6552-3)
The original silvered dial is in very good condition - it has aged gently and the applied steel hour markers really enhance the appearance and the quality of the dial.
The watch is a great size at 38mm - it's got a good presence on the wrist, without ever feeling too bulky or heavy. The stainless steel case has been lightly polished at some point in it's life, but retains the distinctive of the original shape, especially the detailed flowing shape of the lugs. It has a snap back and the original signed Longines crown.
Longines confirmed the details of the watch as follows: "The original serial number 11'053'119 identifies a wrist-chronograph in stainless steel bearing the reference 6552. It is fitted with a Longines manually wound mechanical movement, caliber 30CH. It was invoiced on 12 July 1962 to the company Danero, which was at that time our agent for Uruguay."
The watch is in good working order, the movement has been serviced recently and time keeping is excellent, with all chronograph functions running correctly. Ready to wear and enjoy!

Shipping guide for t-shirts:
All t-shirts on our website are now printed and shipped by an external supplier inside the United States. This means that if you place an order for both a watch and a t-shirt, they will be shipped separately.
Our supplier uses a tracked service for all shipments and this usually takes a little longer than our watches. You can see an estimated timescale when you input your address at the checkout.
During busy sale periods dispatch may take a little longer (this is quite rare). These delivery times are a guide based on the Fedex and Royal Mail terms of service, products may, in some unusual cases take longer to arrive. If this happens, please get in touch.
