Some losses to the outer telemeter scale.  Hands perfect and with matching 'coffee' luminous paint. Case-back very clean with just some minor scratch marks. Movement Particularly clean and fresh. Movement functioning, having been recently serviced.

Note:This style of Longines Dirty Dozen watch is often [incorrectly] referred to as the Greenlander, since it was believed to be the timepiece used in the 1953 Greenland Expedition; the Rolex Tudor was the 'Expediton timepiece.'
