A vintage Longines watch that features a highly stylized gold-filled case.
The 10 karat yellow gold-filled case has the very attractive curved Ãƒ??Ãƒ?Ã‚Â¢??Bombe LugsÃƒ??Ãƒ?Ã‚Â¢?? that were used in the 1950Ãƒ??Ãƒ?Ã‚Â¢??s. It comes as no surprise that the watch, based on the serial number of the movement, dates to 1953.
The automatic Longines movement calibre 19A was just serviced and is keeping excellent time.
The original 3 colour dial is quite appealing with the alternating rings and subtle cross-hair pattern. The hour markers consist of alternating gold Arabic numerals and square markers.
It is hard to find the combination of style and quality that this wristwatch offers for 5 times the cost.
The watch measures 34mm wide by 40mm long and can be supplied on a brown or black leather strap.
