A very handsome
Gents Vintage 1973
*SOLID 9CT GOLD*
6922 calibre wristwatch
This piece is in great condition, running strong and ready to wear having just been serviced.
Case: The superb solid 9CT gold case is fully signed and hallmarked inside. The case is of round form with swept lugs. This is a good sized case with a diameter of 35.5mm excluding the crown and measures 37.5mm long from lug to lug.
The inside back is marked;
(9ct hallmarks for London 1973)
There are some light surface marks commensurate with its age as can be seen and the remains of an interesting presentation inscription to the back from Hawker Siddley; this is not readily visible to the naked eye but can be just made out with the use of flash photography.
A fabulous looking vintage piece in superb condition throughout.
The watch has standard 18mm spring bar lugs and I've fitted it with a good quality slim tan lizard grain leather strap that I think sets it off nicely.
Dial: The dial is matt silver with applied gold batons and fine gold index hands. Condition is completely original; this has not been refinished and has some light isolated marks as seen. The lens is a brand new acrylic.
The movement is Longines 6922 calibre manual winding movement with 17 jewels, gold incabloc and gold balance wheel.
It is again fully signed for Longines.
WATCH CO SWISS
SEVENTEEN 17 JEWELS
This piece is currently running strong and keeping excellent time having just been professionally serviced.
An extremely desireable vintage LONGINES 9ct gold mechanical model ready to wear.
This watch will come in a brand new fitted watch box.
Overall this is a 52-year old mechanical watch in superb condition and highly collectable. Here's a watch that you can wear, enjoy and watch appreciate! Longines watches are fast becoming serious collectors and investment pieces and with prices so reasonable at the moment there really is only one way for them to go in the future.....UP!
An exceptionally fine vintage LONGINES timepiece for your collection!
Terms and conditions; please read
All items advertised are available for personal inspection, viewing and collection by appointment. This is not a Distance Sale.
I am in Cambridgeshire, so please contact me to make an appointment to view.
Postage is offered as a convenience for buyers who do not wish to collect in person.
To contact me you can click on the ‘Ask Seller a Question’ link at the top right of the listing page.
Before committing to purchase a piece please satisfy yourself of any questions or queries. If you have any concerns regarding a piece then please contact me before bidding or buying. All sales are for the actual item shown and are not sold on approval. I can provide additional images on request and will also answer questions as best I can. I sell antique and vintage timepieces and cannot guarantee quartz accuracy from any mechanical movement. All observations are made with the piece intact using a x10 glass unless otherwise stated. I am not a watchmaker and so unable to dismantle them with the requisite skills. Many of the pieces I sell are well in excess of 100 years old and it would be unfair to traumatise them with the thought of my wielding a screwdriver at them.
If you are unsure of the suitability of a piece please ask me for advice; I would rather you did not buy if the item would ultimately not fulfil your expectations or requirements. Antique Watches are much like Vintage Cars, with care, love and attention they will provide great joy and satisfaction. Just as you wouldn’t expect a 1906 Ford to be able to cope with the rigours of today’s motorway traffic on a daily basis and I wouldn’t recommend a 100 year old watch for daily use.
Payment: I accept most forms of payment including;
- Money orders
- Bank transfer
- Postal orders.
- Paypal to Verified Addresses please.
I can accept foreign personal cheques subject to the following conditions;
- The exchange rate is that which my bank buys currency at and not sells it
- An additional £14 equivalent is added to the sum to cover the banks negotiation fees,

I will not accept cheques or money orders drawn for over the purchase amount where a refund of the overpayment is requested. Any fraudulent action will be reported to eBay and the Police.

For items of value greater than £500 I will get quotes for specialist couriers such as UPS, FedEx and DHL through a 3rd party insurer.
Items can only be insured up to their purchase price value. If you decline insurance to the full value of the item purchased this is solely at your risk. I accept no responsibility for items lost or damaged in the mail that were not adequately insured at your request. Please do not haggle over shipping costs after winning, if you are unhappy then please do not bid.
