  • Catalogue Essay

    Longines’ savoir faire and expertise in the field of chronographs remains undisputed. The present lot is a superb example of a reference 7413 housing the iconic 30CH flyback chronograph movement.

    Its large, 38 mm case is in tune with contemporary tastes. Furthermore it has most probably never been polished and its long downturned lugs give the watch a certain machismo. A crisp blue pulsation scale adds a dash of color to the monochrome silver sunburst dial.

    It is without doubt that Longines manufactured some of the greatest wristwatch chronograph movements, and the present reference 7413 is a perfect example. The present lot in superb condition will speak to the collector of sleek sophisticated chronographs from Longine’s “golden era”.

  • Artist Biography


    Swiss • 1832

    Auguste Agassiz founded Longines in 1832, and today is considered to be a pioneer in the evolution of the chronograph. During the 1930s, Longines' chronograph wristwatches were used as tools for wartime aviators and military personnel. As one of Switzerland's largest manufacturers, Longines was an important supplier of wristwatches to militaries of multiple nations.

    Today, they are owned by the Swatch Group and produce wristwatches for both men and women. Their vintage wristwatches continue to grow in desirability amongst collectors. Some of the most sought-after models include such oversized chronographs as the Lindbergh Hour Angle designed by Charles Lindbergh, Chronostop, Tre Tacche, A-7, Tasti a Spillo and Doppia Lanchetta.
