Very nice, and very well made, I have a mate who has the grey one and he loves it. I like the fact I can actually read the date, unlike most of my collection I don`t need my readers. This one is the 44mm but it`s also in 40mm, they were a limited edition of 1970 pieces.

I purchased a ceramic submariner a couple of years ago, i also follow several YouTube bloggers, Paul Thorpe, Bark and Jack etc, so many reports of attacks in order to steal people's watches it takes a lot of the enjoyment of ownership away. Always wary of surroundings etc when i have it on.

Very nice perhaps a tad large for me but super in any case.

Still a great everyday watch, sturdy, accurate and doesn't miss a beat. 👍

44 mm Chris, it`s also in 40 mm but the 44 mm isn`t too big, looks it in that photo strangely but it really isn`t.

a daft question

 

I've got a 50s longines cocktail watch... how do you open the back to find out the serial number and stuff?

 

anyone know.... or should I take it in the watch shop?

I'd take it to a quality jewellers who are a distributor for Longines. They should be able to tell you what you need to know and get it serviced if needed

EVERTIME APOLLO WATCH.

I had this in the 70s when the Apollo programme was happening . This still works perfect, The rocket is the second hand on a glass disc and goes round the moon. 😎

Did you buy the Sub in 2006? I have a black one from around the same time  I bought in Amsterdam. Never wear it nowadays, I was sick of folk asking "Is it a real one?"

Has anybody used these for watch servicing and repairs ? Looks very reasonable to me . Heres the link and a pic of their prices.

This is Sarahs 1940's art deco watch. Its an American Lord Elgin drivers watch . The side bars are so you wear it on the side of your arm so you can see it whilst holding the steering wheel . It's actually a mans watch, but watches were so small then that it now looks more of a ladies watch.
