I posted this over in the Longines sub-thread, but thoguht someone here might have some good info.
I just bought a watch on the Bay and was wondering what exactly it was.

Below is an album with pictures of the watch.

Longines Watch - Imgur

I haven't encountered the 6 screw back case as seen in the pictures. It looks like a gold or gold plated/filled case but I'm not 100%.
Everything seems original and unmolested to me, but there were no pictures of the movement. Please correct if I'm wrong about any unoriginal parts.

Any help would be appreciated if anyone here is well-versed with Longines, as there wasn't a lot of information on the web that I could cross ref.
Thanks!

It looks like a model from the Le Grande Classique colleciton, their line of quartz powered ultra thin dress watches. Probably from the 1980's or 1990's judging on the printed logo.

Wow, thanks a lot. I still have yet to see one in gold with the black dial. Any chance you could tell if its all original? From the ones I've seen on eBay they can go from $750 to $1000 easily (and this one I picked up for real cheap), even the quartz/stainless steel ones.

Thanks again, I appreciate the help!

Nice call.

No problem! It looks to be original, but I can't be 100% sure without seeing it in person. The black dial is quite unusual, I've only ever once seen a similar dial on a mid-1980's Longines, a Calibre 990 automatic.
