LONGINES 6B/159 RAF ROYAL AIR FORCE MILITARY 1940s Cal 12.68N BLUED HANDS PATINALongines
Royal Air Force 6B/159
For auction is a 1940's Longines military issued Royal Air Force RAF 6B/159 32MM manual winding caliber 12.68N original dial. These RAF 6B watches are really stunners; having just worn this watch for a week I can attest to the goodness of the watch; the movement, dial, blued hands, case size, wearability...everything is a 10 of 10. The one complaint is that it only came in chrome, but it doesn't prevent it from being a wearable work of art. The patina that has developed over the years only enhances that intrinsically beautiful design.
