FS: Longines 7970 Hi Beat Diver-1969-Full Set-Serviced &Warranty

Dear Chronotrader readers,

Up for sale today is my Longines Diver 7970 all original.
It is part of the emblematic models of the late 60's and is powered
by the Ultra Chron 431 caliber developed by Longines to
commemorate the company's 100th anniversary.

I sell it full set with it's original box, Archives extract
,Original user manuel and Warranty certificate !

Quadruple signature: dial, bottom of box, movement and crown.

The steel case in excellent condition is shaped beveled cushion :
41 x 40 mm off crown.

The case back signs Longines / Ultra-Chron is numbered.

You will certainly notice the beauty of the rare black Tritium dial
(T Swiss T at 6 o'clock) called "Spider Dial"
enhanced by the superb orange minute hands.
The dial is so called for its resemblance to a spiderweb.
Practically invisible when you wear it it's typically the kind of
detail that makes it unique to the eyes of a watch collector !

The uni-directional rotating bezel has the same colour for index
fingers and the Bakelite insert is protected by a thin plexiglas
film identical to the first Seamaster 300. : A vintage finish
we appreciate particulary nowadays ! .

The famous automatic caliber 431 Ultra-Chron Longines, 25 rubies, 4
setting positions and temperature, micrométrie regulator, beats
at 36,000 vibrations per hour: independently of a diabolical
precision (which Longines used in his communication of the time
Calling it "The most accurate watch in the world") the
seconds hand seems to literally slide over the dial smoothly:

The date is semi-automatic: it is enough to carry out the passage
of the hour hand from 9 am to 3 pm to adjust very quickly the
Perfect operation: Immediate passage (in one time) of the date at
midnight stack: impressive!

The caliber has just been completely serviced by my watchmaker
vintage certified (Swatch Group) and thus benefits from a total
warranty of 1 year until 22/11/2017.

New and top quality for this superb mesh bracelet, you can easily
adapt to your wrist (mine wrist on pics is 21 cm...)

Some pics :

Watch is located in France and will be delivered with its
certificate/warranty one year, box and papers .

Asking price is 1580€ + shipping worlwide.
Please feel free to email me at :
with any questions, ...

Many Thanks for your interest and CT for space!!
