【Description】

今でこそスウォッチグループの中ではオメガよりも知名度で劣る印象のロンジンですが、60年代の日本では高級時計としての地位を確立していました。

1832年、サンティミエで創業したロンジンはスイスで初めて全てを自社で一貫製造する、マニュファクチュールと呼ばれる体制を整えたメーカーです。

また、時計にメーカー名やロゴマークを付けて高品質を謳う、「ブランド」の確立を初めて行いました。

世界初のクロノグラフムーブメント、チャールズ・リンドバーグのアワー・アングル・ウォッチ、といった歴史に残る時計を開発した確かな技術を持っています。

ヴィンテージウォッチにおいてロンジンは「造りが良い」と言われることが多く、特に時計の修理職人の方の評価が高いメーカーとなっています。

この時計は1950年代の手巻き時計で、キャップゴールドと呼ばれる厚めの金張りケースとユニークなダイアルデザインが特徴です。

内側はサークルがプリントされ、外側がかたつむりの殻のように同心円状の模様が入っているスネイルと呼ばれる仕上げがされています。

そして針はゴールドとブルースティールという組み合わせで非常に高級感があります。

ゴールドも艶感と経年による若干のくすみが良いバランスで、安っぽくないけどギラギラしすぎないという色味になっています。

ロンジンへ問い合わせたところ、1954年の6月にタイの代理店に出荷されたという記録が残っているということでした。

搭載ムーブメントはCal.23ZS。仕上げが非常に良く、高級機にカテゴリーされる良い機械です。

About Service
Service(Overhaul) is the process of disassembling a mechanical product down to its component parts, cleaning, and reassembling it to bring it back to the state of performance when it was new.

The overhaul procedure is roughly explained as follows
Separate the case and movement.
Disassemble the movement
Inspect each part for wear and tear and perform a preliminary cleaning.
Cleaning by a special machine
Lubrication and assembly
6. Water-resistance inspection (water-resistance function guaranteed)
7. Adjustment and running test
This is the process of the watchmaking process.

Some movements consist of several hundred parts, which are disassembled piece by piece, inspected, cleaned, and reassembled in an extremely precise process.

Without overhaul, just like a car, the oil deteriorates and the risk of wear and tear on the parts increases, causing a loss of precision or, in serious cases, the inability to run.

We recommend an overhaul every two to three years to ensure economical and long-lasting use of your watch.


About new finishing (polishing)

Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has become rounded at the corners, or has many small scratches on the surface that should be beautiful with a mirror finish.

At Albitro, we believe that our watches should be purchased in beautiful condition and used for a long time, so we sell them with a new finish.

Especially for dress watches with gold cases, we finish them to bring out the best of the precious metal case.

The watches sold at Albitro that have been newly finished are photographed in very high resolution, so you can see the edges are sharp and the mirror finish reflects the light.

Some cases and bracelets have a mixture of mirror and hairline finishes, but not many craftsmen are able to distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.

The "thinning of the case" is another area that is highly dependent on the skill of the craftsman. A watch with skinny lugs is far from its original design, and its appearance is unbalanced.

It is a very meticulous process to reduce the thinness of the case as much as possible while eliminating scratches and dents to bring the watch closer to its original finish.

Of course, in some cases, it is better to leave the watch in its original condition as it is, as it is the history of the watch and the original condition is important.

We look at each watch individually and decide whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
