Footnotes

The reference 5965 has the legendary calibre Longines CH30. The movement has both the classic column wheel control function and the addition of a flyback feature, allowing for instantaneous return to zero while the chronograph functions. This combination is one of the most desirable chronograph movements produced.

This watch was first invoiced on the 8th September 1950 to Longines-Wittnauer Watch Co in the USA.
