Mint Longines Greenlander Military

Green-Mint-Groot

This is one of the best Longines Greenlanders I ever saw, it’s like new in mint original condition. These watches are still undervalued while they tick all the boxes; a 37mm steel screwback case, UK military use and quite rare. This example was delivered to the UK in 1945 and might be one of the first as it has no 2. stamped in the case back and lug. It also has original pencil hands (like the Big Indian) which are actually nicer than the more common ‘onion’ hands. It’s mint throughout with lovely original black dial and like new Cal. 12.68 movement. Attached is a period pigskin band. If you ever wanted one, this is it!

Longines 13ZN-12 Hour Counter

Sommatore-Groot

This is the grail of all Longines 13ZN chrono’s with Hour and Central Minute Counter. Ref is: 23086 and it was sold in 1947 to Longines Wittnauer USA (Longines Museum info). The large steel screw-back case measures 39mm excl. crowns and is double signed (caseback + lugs) correctly and is still very sharp. The beautiful original dial and hands have aged wonderfully and together with the radium markers show great patina. Movement is the famous 13ZN, reworked to have the complicated extra feature of a central minute counter. Attached is a nice high quality leather strap. To top it all off, it comes with a period box. And in the box I found a Longines ad from just after WOII from Longines Wittnauer USA which makes the package even nicer. Not for the faint-hearted but it will surely be a solid investment and in much nicer condition than the one recently sold at auction. One of the most beautiful watches of all time!
