You can get instructions from their web site but if your watch is really old, then it seems unlikely that any of the instructions there are for your watch.
However, since watches tend to have similar features (although not the modern electronic types), a basic modern watch probably operate in the same manner.
Go to "www.longines.com/watches/instructions" and have a look at the range of instructions there to see if they are any help.
If nothing useful is found look at the "official retailers" to see if there is a local shop that can help you.

SOURCE: i have a longines five
A 1100 wrench is a professional tool that shrinks the crystal applying balanced pressure to removed it without damaging it. Technically the part is a precision crystal compressor tool consisting in a metal wrench and adaptable rings. Here how it looks like (the one below is a 1200 - only the diameter is different - shape is the same) :
Once crystal is out the movement comes out through the front of the case, the back does not open and it is all in one piece
Don't try to open the watch by yourself. you will damage the case. The watch is still worth over $500. If you are located in USA I suggest contacting the professional repair below. If you are located elsewhere find a local Longines repairer or a vintage watch repairer.
