The movement in the Big Eye, L688.2 (aka the ETA A08.L01), with Columm wheel, is this a newer movement for Longines, I think it is in a few other Longines watches, is this a tried and tested movement, anyone know of its reliability long term.


Secondly, the blue column wheel, is this heat treated blue, or 'painted', if heat blued seems even more of a shame to hide it away, do you think Longines will release a display case model.

Watchtime had an article introducing it in 2009 and said it had a 'blued steel column wheel'
I love it and agree we need more crystal display backs to show this beauty off
I have not read of any problems with it
