On sale is a All Original Royal Air Force pilot’s Longines 6b/159 watch which dates from the second world war. The watch was ordered by the RAF for pilots and navigators. RAF watches from this period were supplied by a number of manufacturers including Omega, Jaeger Le-Coultre and Longines, the watches followed a standard specification which included a white dial with black arabic numerals, centre seconds and blued steel non-luminous hands. These watches are referred to by their stores reference number: 6b/159. There are a few light scratches from wear, but overall condition is excellent. The Longines 12.68N movement is a thing of beauty and with no concession to economy! The movement is gilded and Longines even used blued steel screws, something which was standard in traditional watchmaking, but which would be abandoned by Longines and all the other manufacturers in the postwar years. The movement is in excellent condition and is keeping good time. The case remains unpolished. Specifications Case diameter: 32mm Strap width: 17mm leather strap.
