I purchased this for around $13.00.

Again, Longines quickly responds back to me within 48 hours with the requested information.







Dear Mr. Copeland,



Thank you for your email and interest in Longines watches.



Following your request, we have the pleasure to inform you that the box is originally from around 1931. Indeed, the number printed on the box corresponds to the serial number of the pocket watch which was inside the box.



This silver pocket watch was fitted with a manually wound mechanical movement, caliber 18.50N and was invoiced on the 12.11.1931 to our agent for Argentina, Messrs Perusset.



Hoping this information is convenient to you, I remain at your entire disposal for any additional request you may have.


Best regards,

Longines is a class act, thanks kevco for posting the link.

How about that for customer service.
Maybe, some other companies should take note?

Nice thread. And yeah, it's nice to note a real company that knows its own history and can inform you about any one of its products - unlike like thayut wurl' famus TV wartch brand, which can't even locate a fucking missing watch band screw a week after some TTV POS was purchased.

I mean, ain't gettin' real grand? Frankly, that empty box is worth more than a year's worth of TV shit, at least to a real collector. It has a real, verifiable history all its own, unlike some BS Russian Navy wartch pulled out of some TV shyster's not-so-fervid 'magination. Case closed.
