Longines is considered to be the creator of many of the best chronographs of the last century, and the 13ZN has been described as one of the most beautiful and sophisticated movements to date.
Launched in 1936, this movement allowed the wearer – mostly pilots – to reset the chronograph without the need to first stop the movement, a feature called “Flyback Chronograph”. Another prestige feature is the column wheel, for a perfect and precise operation.
This historical movement is housed in this beautiful and rare “Tre Tacche” case in excellent conservation state, manufactured in the 1940s.
The charming matte black dials features Arabic luminous numerals, while the lumed hands are a hybrid between syringe and pencil. All the luminous paint turned to a beautiful and even toasted tone.
The extreme rarity, the details and perfect conditions make this watch worth of the greatest chronograph collections.
Case: 38mm stainless steel Movement: Manual, cal. 13ZN, 17 jewels Reference: 21838 - 2 Year: ca. 1940
