          Interesting. I was just checking out some of the vintage Longines watches that were for sale on the the various forums. Do you have a seller photo of the one you bought? What year was it made and how large (diameter) is it?

            I too am interested in hearing about your new purchase. How did you decide on the particular model? What model did you end up getting? etc. Looking forward to hearing all about it.

              Picked this one up: https://s31.postimg.org/5ebiobqvf/longines.jpg

              It is a 1960 Crosshair dial Longines.

              It is 34mm, so much smaller than others in my collection, but it looks fantastic. It is not a daily wearer but will certainly use it on special occasions.

              How did I pick it? Well, I had been wanting a vintage Omega or Longines for a while. This one came up and was affordable enough to purchase and stash. If I need to service it, it shouldn't be too bad since my watchmaker is familiar with the movement (in house, Caliber 280, Mechanical with no complications). I wanted a clean dial and no date. That was basically my criteria.

                  By chance, are you a pilot or a plane enthusiast? I have a few friends who are either professional pilots or fly as a hobby, and when it comes to watches they adore Breitling. But unless there's some association with planes / flying, I haven't seen many WIS who have multiple Breitlings.

                    Hey there!
                    No, neither. I'm particularly fond of my two Breitlings though. Most Breitlings don't really appeal to me but these two work for me real well.

                        Yeah, I was between that and the Seiko Cocktail Time. Ended up going with the Cocktail Time but sometimes I wish I had gone with the Visodate.

                          Any pics of the Cocktail Time? I was considering grabbing that one.

                            The sunburst dial looks much better under sunlight than fluorescent. It looks more blue in stock photos than it does in real life, which is the main reason why it's a bit disappointing.
