Today's showcases this very collectible and rare caliber 13.33 World War I era chronograph. First developed in 1913, like many chronograph pocket watches, the 13.33 relies on a single pusher to start, start and reset the chronograph. While some of the dials for these watches contained colorful scales, the dial on this very early example is more utilitarian and uncluttered and goes along well with the watch's somewhat trench style design. It's easy to read large numerals and prominent red twelve give it a natural suitability for military uses, particularly important at the time this watch was produced. It is is pleasing original condition down to the crown and hour and minute and small register hands with matching serial and case numbers. The only part that appears that it likely is a replacement is a the sweeping chrono hand. The silver case has a beautiful authentic patina, which have left on. It could be removed if desired. Accompanying it is a vintage Longines box. It is running very well, and the chronograph starts, stops, and resets crisply. If you're familiar with modern Longines, the Longines Column-Wheel Single Push-Piece Chronograph 180th Anniversary Limited Edition was specially designed to mark the brand’s 180th anniversary's and is closely based on the original 13.33 watches.
