Record Automatic

MIT biochemist Har Khorana finishes deciphering the DNA code

1966 Record automatic ref. 1955-2

Some people say Record was a less-expensive sub-brand of Longines, not 100% true. The Record Precision Watch company was formed in the early 1900s, and was purchased by Longines in the early 1960s but the company did not survive the quartz crisis. Record was not a sub-brand of Longines but an originally independent company that was bought up and integrated into the “Longines group”. Rather like Longines now being inside the Swatch group.
