Longines Admiral 5 Star

I have been wanting one of these for awhile! I just had to wait until I found the right one.

35.5 mm diameter on my 7.5” wrist.

This one dates approximately late 1960’s to early 70’s.

It runs + 15 secs on my timegrapher. Not bad for a piece of this vintage!

I have really developed an appreciation for the classic styles from the past.

Any other Admirals out there?

That's an admirable Admiral from a country without a navy and from a time when 5 stars had other connotations than Amazon reviews.

Definitely a thing of the 20th century!

This one shows that good examples are out there!

Look up the sellers “Closer” on eBay. This is a Japanese company I have bought from twice now. Many vintage watches. They have been better than advertised in both instances. In fact, almost every watch I have bought from Japan has been so.
