Description

You are looking at an ultra-rare original vintage Longines Big Eye Skin Diver/Aviator 7981-3 30CH chronograph from around 1968.
The watch is 40mm in diameter and shows fantastic on the wrist - an absolute classic.
The watch received a complete and professional movement service about a year ago.
The watch is accompanied by a recent Longines Archives Certificate, as pictured.
The movement in this watch is the legendary Longines in-house caliber 30CH. The original matte black dial is in really good condition, as are the hands. The rotating bezel has aged to a nice "ghost" color. The case has some wear marks, as shown in the pictures, but it is still in very good cosmetic condition, especially for a "tool watch" of this age.
The watch will come on a new dark blue water-resistant Hirsch "shark-skin" leather strap.
