    Longines Large SS 38mm Rare Model, "Serbian Army Corps", ca.1939





    What is of interest about this watch is that it has the same 15.26 movement* as one of the Longines Tartarugone 1935 of the Czech Air Force.

    * Longines began production using their common 5.65 mm Cal. 15.94 but switched to the thinner 4.5 mm Cal. 15.26 for a second series. This movement was not produced in much volume due to the Great Depression and was perhaps too fine for a military timepiece with its gold-plated bridges. Once the Czech military specifications were in, Longines switched to the cheaper Cal. 15.68, and this is the movement found in most military-issue Longines “Tartarugone” watches.
