    the only example of a longines-signed bigeye i've found on the interwebs is quite different to this design, which is the inspiration for longines heritage diver chronograph.

    From Longines.

    Longines has produced chronographs hosting Valjoux 72 . Nothing new.

    Whether or not the chronograph about which we are talking about was initially manufactured by Longines in this configuration is another story.

    Well...oddities do turn up. Still on such an iconic watch type you'd expect many more, plus where are the images Of The watch photographed? I'm doubtful. Well until one turns up. But I like longines, good guys from my point of view. Freely will give you information. IWC want to charge you 300

    I went and looked at the "big eye" today.

    Considering I don't like new watches I was quite impressed

    It is nicely finished and not too bulky, I don't like heavy watches. It is quite thick though, probably due to the automatic movement. This is the only issue that concerns me.

    They told me they only had one of them but they may have said that to "make the sale". They further advised they had seen considerable interest in this watch.

    I'm contemplating going back tomorrow to purchase it.

    Here is a one that shares some similarities from one of my books.









    The cal.330, based on the Valjoux 72 as stated above.
    Similar timeframe, 1968.
    Same logo.
    Same sub hands.
    Same dial layout, except for minutes register.

    No tritium reference on the dial either.
