    Condition: This timepiece presents in good condition. The case shows some fading of the rose gold plate on sides. Original dial shows spotting, but presents very well. The case back is a non original steel replacement. Movement runs and operates as it should. Service is recommended. Please note the following information from Longines Heritage department: "Originally, the serial number 7'622'569 identifies a wrist-chronograph in rose gold plated bearing the reference 5971. It is fitted with a Longines manually wound mechanical movement, caliber 30CH and was invoiced on 28 December 1949 to the company Danero, which was at that time our agent for Uruguay. the case back is not the original case back of your movement serial number. In consequence we are unable to prepare the Extract from the Archives."
