Up for sale only is a 1960s Longines Ultra Chron, fully serviced.
Watch features all stainless steel C-shape case made by Star W.C. Co, ref. 2873. Diameter is about 35mm w/o crown. Sharp edges and brush patterns are clear and visible. Acrylic crystal has swirls and scratches throughout, nothing major. Dial features raised art-deco Arabic numerals over sunburst effect. There are some spotting and noticeable discoloration just below the date window.
Movement is recently serviced. The in-house cal. 431 beats at 36000 bph. The date is non quick set and changeable by advancing 24 hours. One thing to note is that the manual winding tends to be stiff especially when wound fully. A quick google search suggest that this is a prevalent occurrence, especially given the extra small sized crown.
$389 shipped and PayPald in USA. Canada add 20.
