An example of such information is dating the production time of the watch. With the help of the serial number, you can date your Longines watch, and we will go into detail about how you can do that further on.
Few manufacturers keep as well-recorded records about their watches as Longines. In fact, Longines has recorded every single serial number of its watches since 1867. Safe to say that is quite a substantial record. Using its record, Longines can provide first-class and detailed information about the timepieces that have left the factory. What is even more interesting (and something we have Longines to thank for), is that Longines is happy to share this information with the public.
Companies like Rolex naturally have a well-recorded database of their serial numbers, but do not disclose this information to the public as Longines does. We will go more into detail about this further on.
Longines serial numbers can normally be found engraved on the case back. Most often, the number is engraved on the outside of the case back, but in some cases, it may be engraved on the inside, which means you need to remove the case back in order to access it. The serial number may also be engraved on the movement.
To date your Longines watch, you can either take help from the serial number list below or identify the age and production year of your vintage Longines watch by ordering a certificate of authenticity or extract from the archives directly from Longines.
Note that this article is written for informational purposes. Whilst we regularly update it and try to ensure the production years are correct, some typos or incorrect details may exist. Note, simply looking at the list of serial numbers and comparing it with your watch is not a means of authenticating the watch. The way you authenticate your Longines watch is by requesting a certificate of authenticity from Longines or having an experienced watchmaker inspect it.

To obtain watch parts correctly, it is important that Case numbers be used when ordering these parts. Different watch manufacturers place these numbers at different points on the case. This listing is a guide in obtaining the correct number.
Please use the following tables to help determine the approximate age of your watch. Remove or open the back cover from your watch and look for a number engraved into the movement; this is the serial number for your watch, and by using it, you can find the closest years it was made on these tables. Please note there is a difference between the number marked on the movement and the one marked on the case. These tables are only accurate for the movement serial numbers.
To be clear, a jewel count does not reference the type of jewels you are thinking of. Instead, a watch's jewel count indicates the number of functional jewels found within the watch. These are used in watches as the bearings for wheel trains and high wear parts such as the escape lever. The higher the jewel count of your old watch, the higher its value. A 17-jewel watch is considered to be fully jewelled.
We know that vintage pocket watches can be valuable, but what does a valuable vintage pocket watch look like exactly? An extreme example is that of the Breguet number 160, an antique pocket watch manufactured in 1827 for Marie Antoinette. This extravagant timepiece features a full perpetual calendar, a jumping hour hand, 23 complications and 823 parts. Encased in 18-karat gold and sapphires along every surface, its value is estimated at $36 million.
Another example is Omega, who has been making watches since 1848. Look at the back of your old antique watches to see if the manufacturers are indicated. If not, you can also use the serial number to identify this information.
In applying Section 301, New York courts emphasize several factors, including existence of an office, solicitation of business, presence of bank accounts and other property, presence of employees of the foreign defendant, whether defendant lists a phone number, public relations and publicity work, and sales within the state. Hoffritz for Cutlery, Inc., supra, at 58; Vendetti, supra, at 890; Rolls-Royce Motors, Inc. v. Charles Schmitt & Co., 657 F. Supp. 1040, 1044 (S.D.N.Y.1987). Solicitation of business alone may not be sufficient to constitute doing business, solicitation plus additional business activities related to the defendant's operative or financial structure usually satisfies the test. See Elish v. St. Louis Southwestern Ry. Co., 305 N.Y. 267, 269-270, 112 N.E.2d 842, 843 (1953); Scanapico v. Richmond, Fredericksburg & Potomac R. Co., 439 F.2d 17, 20-21 (2d Cir.), aff'd en banc, 439 F.2d 25 (1970). Also, while not sufficient in themselves, other factors such as advertising within the state, conducting litigation, planning and executing business tactics and strategy, and obtaining commercial credit arrangements may, when considered together with other relevant contacts and activities, provide a basis for establishing jurisdictional presence. Vendetti, supra, at 890. The time frame relevant for a jurisdictional inquiry under Section 301 is the time of the summons and complaint. Andros Compania Maritima, S.A. v. Intertanker Ltd., 714 F. Supp. 669 (S.D.N.Y.1989).
No specific formula has been devised for determining the nature or quality and quantity of contacts necessary to satisfy this test, rather, the courts look to the particular facts and circumstances of each case. See, e.g., Landoil Resources, supra, at 1044-46 (personal jurisdiction did not exist over a corporation whose employees took short business trips involving several different accounts, and, in some instances, concerning contacts that were not related to New York in any way, and, noting that the solicitations occurred sporadically over a period of eighteen months, the court concluded "these contacts are insufficient to establish the systematic and continuous presence within the state that New York law requires") (citing Aquascutum, supra, at 211-12); Hoffritz for Cutlery, supra, at 57-58 (fifty-four visits to New York to discuss business with plaintiff insufficient); Kingsepp, supra, at 27 (despite the fact that Dartmouth College was not licensed to do business in New York, had no offices in New York, and did not list a phone number in New York, the court held that the college was doing business in New York as it engaged in a systematic and continuous course of conduct within New York, including sending representatives to forty-four New York schools annually, engaging in substantial commercial activity in the state, maintaining two bank accounts, issuing four bond offerings through a New York investment banking firm, and owning a remainder interest in real property in the state); New World Capital Corp. v. Poole Truck Line, Inc., 612 F. Supp. 166, 172 (S.D.N.Y.1985) (eight visits over four years insufficient); Savoleo v. Couples Hotel, 136 A.D.2d 692, 524 N.Y.S.2d 52 (1988) ("occasional" business trips to New York insufficient).
Loma Linda University Medical Center's contacts with New York include (1) treatment of 293 New York residents from 1987 to 1994, resulting in gross revenues of $2,834,192, (2) receipt of $334,198 in charitable contributions from 147 New York donors between 1988 and 1994, (3) listing its residency programs in the Green Book, (4) advertising job opportunities in the Nursing 1994 Directory, as well as advertising for faculty positions and a medical director in nationally circulated publications and distributing a national flyer listing faculty openings, (5) maintaining an "800 number" in connection with its physician referral program, and which "800 number" is assumed to be accessible throughout the country, (6) the fact that eighty-seven of the hospital's medical residents between 1988 and 1994 attended New York medical schools, (7) the fact that forty-seven of the physicians on its medical staff attended New York medical schools or listed their residence as New York prior to practicing at the hospital, (8) receipt, from 1991 to 1994, of thirty-four applications from medical *209 students and physicians, who were from New York or attended New York medical schools, interested in practicing in its emergency medicine residency program or its emergency department. Plaintiffs' Memorandum of Law at III-77 - III-79.
For a corporation to transact business under Section 12 of the Clayton Act, only a finding that the defendant is "engaging in any substantial business operations" within the jurisdiction is required. Scophony, supra, at 807, 68 S.Ct. at 861-62; Pocahontas, supra, at 69. In determining, therefore, whether a corporate defendant is transacting business, the court must "look to `the actual unity and continuity of the whole course of [the defendant's] conduct'" at the time the complaint was served on the defendant.Scophony, supra, at 817, 68 S. Ct. at 866. Among the factors to be considered are the existence of an office in the state, solicitation of business in the state, presence of employees in the state, presence of bank accounts or other property in the state, listing of a phone number, public relations or publicity work, sales, advertising, conducting litigation, planning and executing business tactics and strategy, obtaining commercial credit arrangements, and other business activities occurring in New York. Agra Chemical Distributing Co., Inc. v. Marion Laboratories, Inc., 523 F. Supp. 699, 702 (W.D.N.Y. 1981). In determining whether the Defendants are subject to venue in this district, the court must review each corporate Defendant's contacts with New York. Further, the totality of the circumstances must be taken into account, considering as a whole all acts and conduct of a corporation within a particular district, rather than separately considering isolated and fragmented contacts. Scophony, supra, at 817, 68 S. Ct. at 866 (the determination of whether venue is proper over an entity must not be made "by atomizing [the acts of the defendant] into minute parts or events, in disregard of the actual unity and continuity of the whole course of conduct"); Golf City, Inc. v. Wilson Sporting Goods Co., 555 F.2d 426, 438 (5th Cir. 1977) (all contacts must be considered together to determine whether they constitute the transaction of business in the district in the ordinary and usual sense). In Scophony, the Court carefully analyzed the defendant's business purpose and found activity by its agents in New York in furtherance of that purpose to suffice for a finding of venue despite the fact that no revenue producing transactions occurred and no goods were shipped into the state as a result. 2b1af7f3a8
