What makes this timepiece exceptional
As the fourth chronograph movement manufactured by Longines in 1947 for chronograph bracelets, the 30CH has a semi-instantaneous 30-minute counter and indicates a 5th of a second.
A worthy successor of the caliber 13ZN, it continues to appeal to watch lovers and collectors of exceptional chronograph movements even today. This caliber is also equipped with a flyback function. The excellent condition of the gold case is the result of a full and thorough restoration by an exceptional jeweler in the Longines Heritage workshop.
Restoration by Longines is made up of more than ten meticulous steps calling on all the qualities of our experts. From diagnosis to testing, discover more about Longines workshop services.
