What makes this timepiece exceptional
Longines registered the Ultra-Chron mark in Switzerland on 28 October 1966. The entire line of models in this collection was distinguished from other models by its high-frequency movement. It was one of the most accurate watches of its time in serial production: Its name Ultra-Chron stands for Ultra-Chronometer, which means more accurate than a traditional Chronometer. The Longines Ultra-Chron was the last mechanical watch to equal the accuracy of the electronic tuning-fork watches of its time. But of course without any battery.
