This chronograph from Longines is a typical eBay find: a very bad pic of an interesting watch that did not get that much attention – yet. As far as I can tell from the dark and blurry pics the condition of this Longines is obviously not perfect but it remains pretty great for a 50-year-old watch. The crystal has seen some battles but, more importantly, the dial and hands look nice, only the crown is incorrect. And, of course, the Longines reference 6592 is powered by the famed 30-CH caliber, one of the most well respected vintage chronograph movement.

You can find the listing on eBay here and with less than 2 days to run the bidding were still below $500. At this price it is the steal of the year.

UPDATE: The seller just terminated the bidding on the Longines, which probably means that he decided to sell outside of eBay. While the amount can’t be precisely known I have heard rumors about an offer around $4,500.
