Longines Legendary Watches
The infamous John Goldberger illustrates in Longines Legendary Watches what he considers to be the most interesting examples ever produced by the St. Imier company. 270 watches have been photographed to show the movement, case and dial of each example in the best possible way.
The book is not a complete work on Longines’ past. Rather it is a well illustrated overview of the rarest and finest Longines watches made.
The watches pictured inside are rarely seen elsewhere, so this book is an invaluable compilation of Longines timepieces. Some of the watches are recognisable as the inspirations for the remakes Longines current produces. The most well known being the Legend Divers. Also shown is a Rumanian Military Pilots Watch. A personal favourite of mine and the watch belongs to a Norwegian collector.
Longines Legendary Watches is divided into 16. Chapters where you will find over 1500 high definition colour illustrations. Descriptions of the watches provide the collector and watch enthusiast with invaluable and rare information. Case reference numbers, dials, movements, related calibers and the year of production of each watch is mentioned.
John Goldberger will take you out on a fascinating journey into the history of these amazing timepieces and the Longines brand.
