FS: 1950s vintage 12.68z Longines dress watch

Hi all,

Up for sale is my 1950s vintage 12.68z Longines dress watch. Here’s the details:

1. Case: 35mm steel case. Case is in great shape, very sharp, looks like has not been polished before, normal wear with fine scratches, no major dents or scratches. Case back is in pristine condition with highly visible wording. The case profile on this piece is lovely, lugs are beautifully made, and wear nicely on the wrist.

2. Dial & hands: all original & good condition. There are marks on the dial and there are discoloration spots as can be seen in the photos. Generally, it still looks fine to my taste.

3. Movement: original 12.68z movement, serviced in 2019. It keeps good time & runs strong. Accuracy is unknown as it’s not important to me. Movement number matches case number as per Longines Extract confirms. I still have this on email. Physical Extract paper can be found, I have not go and look for it yet.

From Longines Extract:

The original serial number 10'848'XXX identifies a wristwatch in stainless steel bearing the reference 6874. It is fitted with a Longines manually wound mechanical movement, caliber 12.68Z and was invoiced on 19 May 1961 to the company Hausammann, which was at that time our agent for Norway and Sweden.

4. Crown: unsigned, wind & set time smoothly

5. Glass: unknown originality. It looks nice.

6. Strap: beautiful vintage Eterna real leather strap is included as pictured, this cost me $50.

7. I’m asking US$ 600 net to me including shipping, excluding Paypal fees. Bank transfer to my local Singapore bank account is a preferred option, buyer to cover bank fees.
