Reviews - What do customers think about Longines Watches?
Not what you may expect Nov 15, 2006
Although there are lots of nice photos in this book, 90% of the watches illustrated herein are chronometers, with about 5% being regular wristwatches and 5% pocket watches. So if you are looking for a book that gives you a broad overview of Longines production, this is not it.
