Rare Grey Crosshair Dial / 1970
This Longines Ultra-Chron from 1970 features a beautiful dark grey crosshair dial and a larger than usual 37mm case. This is truly a beautiful piece that any watch collector can appreciate.
The Longines Ultra-Chron is a watch that ticks all the boxes that we require of a proper vintage dress piece. Introduced in the late 1960s and produced for only six years, the Ultra-Chron is an early attempt by the brand to mass-produce a mechanical watch that, according to their advertisements, was "the world's most accurate watch... guaranteed accurate to within one minute per month." This was achieved with the hi-beat Caliber movement, which had a beat rate of 36,000 beats per hour.

All watches are authentic with all original parts (including original untouched / un-repainted dial) unless specifically stated otherwise.
Vintage watches are generally smaller than modern watches. Although our measurements are only approximates, they are a good indicator for the buyer to see if the smaller size will be an issue or not.
If a watch is not specifically indicated as "Serviced", we do not have its service history and cannot guarantee its accuracy. We highly recommend it to be serviced by a watchmaker for regular use.
Accuracy indicated in the Condition section is only based on 12 hours timegrapher test in one position (movement up or dial up). This is just a reference to help buyer understands the condition of the movement. We cannot guarantee its actual accuracy, and in our experience real world performance will be different.
Watch does not included original bracelet / strap / buckle / box / paper unless specifically stated.
