Stainless steel double compressor diving watch by Longines, made in the very end of the 1950’s. 7042 is the first reference, a true unicorn almost never on sale, with radium dial and hands.
Apart from the radium, there are slight differences with the following versions, like the rotating inner bezel with 4 dots between 10 and 15, and the luminous round dots at 12, 3, 6, 9, instead of the tritium lines that were adopted later on.
The watch is in beautiful conditions, the case appears to be unpolished. It is indeed a spectacular watch with a warm patina on hands and indexes.
The watch comes with an ultra rare Bambi bracelet and a Longines extract of the Archives.
42mm without crowns
