LONGINES Ref 5482 VINTAGE 1940's 24 HOUR DIAL CALIBER 10L MANUAL 32MM STAINLESSLongines
For auction is a Longines 5482 caliber 10L 33mm center seconds tritium dial with 24 hour markers. Likely as not this was a military used piece without military markings; the 24 hour center dial portion. Rugged, quality through and through (a quality not able to be gotten today unless an extreme amount of money is spent) and still a relevant and good looking design. Attractive blued hands with center seconds, good looking and perfectly proportioned case. At 32mm and a 16mm lug width it is a terrific unisex piece, or even boys watch (get ‘em started young).
