Longines Super Compressor Diver’s ref 7042-3 circa 1961


Vintage Longines stainless steel Super Compressor ref# 7042-3 circa 1961. This is the original vintage oversized diver’s model. Featuring a 42mm diameter case with 53mm heavy extended lugs, with original gloss black dial with patina’d gilts numerals and indexes, oversized luminous hands, and with rotating inner elapsed time bezel. With 2 large cross hatched crowns, the lower to set the time and manually wind the watch, and the upper crown to control the inner elapsed time bezel. Powered by self winding Longines caliber 19AS movement with sweep seconds but without date. Domed case back features a deeply embossed skin diver wearing SCUBA gear and carrying a spear gun.

This is an exceptional condition example of this scarce and desirable oversized diver’s model. Impressive on the wrist, with beautiful condition gloss black dial with intact patina’d luminous indexes, and clear and distinct gold gilt printing. With unpolished case which still shows shallow engraved triangular index on case back rim.

Offered on a vintage style distressed leather 22mm strap of your choice. A truly great collectible vintage model.
