Longines Weems YGF circa 1942 Breguet Dial Archive

$2,350.00

Exceptional example vintage Longines Weems YGF aviator’s watch produced in civilian and U.S. military versions in the 1940’s. Featuring a medium size 28 x 36mm case with wide elapsed time 60 minute bezel secured by an adjustable set screw at 2 0’clock. With beautifully patina’d original matte silver dial with gold applied Breguet style figures and gilt leaf style hands. Powered by 17 jewel manual wind Longines caliber 10L (10.68N)  movement with oversize sweep seconds hand that extends to an outer detailed seconds track.

Recently fully serviced and left unpolished and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate time keeping and operation.

The medium size Weems model is the most well known of the various size and configurations of WWII era aviation watches designed by or in conjunction with iconic Atlantic solo crossing aviator Charles Lindbergh. It is rare to find an example of this model with Breguet figures as the models typically were supplied with radium luminous numbers and radium pencil hands.

An archive from Longines confirms production of the movement in 1942, which was sold to Longines-Wittnauer USA their agent at the time, and with case produced “locally.” Presumably a civilian model due to absence of luminous, as well as the absence of any military designation. A copy of the letter from Longines will accompany the purchase.
