    Pretty cool watch; I'm a big fan of vintage Longines.

    I kind of like it. It's oddness makes it unique. Plus I like the regulator dial and the large crown.

    Not sure if I'd choose to wear it myself but I do like it, it's certainly not a monstrosity...

    thanks guys, I was outbid by about $35. First watch I've bid on, so I don't really have the feel for how these things go. I've pretty much centered by search on vintage longines...I think there's a lot of value there and some of the watches are interesting.

    Anyone catch the winner's username?

    (Very cool watch, although I'd ask for pics of the movement before bidding on a vintage watch.)
