Other: The Longines Conquest line included some incredibly beautiful watches and this rare reference 9020-4 is no exception.

This particular example was invoiced to Longines agent Maclaine in Singapore on May 12, 1964 according to the Longines extract from the archives. It is a later configuration of the 9020 with no date and correct traditional signed crown instead of the "scalloped" crown found on earlier examples. You get a versatile stainless steel watch from a powerhouse brand with fantastic proportions and an in-house automatic movement for a very affordable price.

It is completely original and even includes the original signed Longines strap and Longines tang buckle.
