Longines announces on its website, the heritage of the manufacturer admires several people. At an auction in the USA a longings watch has been sold for possibly record-breaking $50,600. The watch was originally bought in 1948. The stainless steel chronograph features a manually wound mechanical movement of the famous caliber 13ZN. You can see this historical timepiece on our website and in our museum.
About the movement:
In 1936 Longine creates a calibre for a legendary wristwatch, the 13ZN, produced in various versions, with one or two push-pieces, with a semi-instantaneous 30-minute counter or a 60-minute continuous counter. Longines files a patent for this calibre, one of the most remarkable in its history.
