Thread: Longines is finished!

  1. #1

    Longines is finished!

    Hey Cats

    Received the solid link 24mm bracelet for the Longines today. Notched it and it fits beautifully, however it does not taper which I thought it did so it's quite bulky. The original was a stainless steel beast as well but not as thick and it tapered.

    This watch has serious wrist presence now.....wow!



    Peace,
    Preston

    Looks great! Totally retro-cool. Nicely done, Preston!

    Very nice, as always, Preston. That is some serious metal there and your left bicep is bound to grow.

    That bracelet reminds me of a tank tread, Mucho macho!

    Heavy duty beast! Looks serious. Congratulations.
    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    Silly me !.... I saw the thread title, and was expecting to see some announcement that Longines (the company) was 'going under'

    That's a serious looking bracelet; nice watch, too.

    Love the look.

    Agree a a taper would be slightly better, but I'd happily wear it as is.
