LONGINES Ref. 5697-6 1940s STAINLESS Cal. 27M SAHARA PATINA DIAL GORGEOUS UNIQUELongines
For auction is a Longines ref. 5697-6 1940's period (WWII period) steel screwback caliber 27M with 'Sahara' patina dial. A non-assigned but likely military piece it has a very remarkable and unique looking dial that looks like a desert viewed from above. High grade and yet still robust and wearable nearly 80 years later it is super cool. This is the reason I love vintage...it is real and harkening back to the fact that the watch was made to be a tool. Great and unique piece.
