This sale is for a Vintage Longines Ultra-Quartz Watch. 

A rare and historically important watch . The only Cybernetic watch ever produced and instead of an IC it had micro sized transistor , resistors and capacitors . The motor module with Accutron type pawl and index fingers consists of a torsion bar with coil and counter-weight on both ends that vibrates at 170Hz. On top of that there is an electronic maze manually assembled with 14 transistors, 19 resistors, 7 capacitors and a quartz crystal vibrating at 9350Hz 

Very expensive in 1972 and the hight of technology and accuracy when quartz was in its infancy . Made in low numbers and very rare to find one of these for sale in running condition and even rarer to find on original bracelet . A real classic and iconic 1970s Swiss watch . This large and heavy watch , seriously collectible. In nice condition , the time keeping is not good at about 5 mins out each day but none the less a very rare collectors item . These are getting harder to get in nice condition and going up in value .
