LONGINES TARTARUGONE Ref 3582 40MM ENAMEL DIAL 1930s Cal 15.94 1ST SERIES PILOTSLongines
For auction is a very early 1930's Longines Czech pilots watch ref. 3582 40mm massive case caliber 15.94 enamel dial manual winding stainless steel. A very early variant of the vaunted big turtle watch that was issued to slavic forces in the 1930's and 40's with gorgeous enamel dial and very nice 1st variant case. These watches are interesting; they are wristwatches but beat with the heart of a larger movement, one that was adapted from pocket watches; as such wearing the watch brings a certain joy...a heavy duty feeling befitting a tool watch of its nature. A great and shockingly wearable watch with a massive size; the 40mm diameter is a bit misleading because of the rounded square nature of the case...the 51mm lug length makes it a huge watch taking up a ton of wrist acreage. Amazing to think the watch is in its 80s and still spry.
