Vintage Longines dress watches are amongst the most beautiful ever. Fortunately they still haven’t achieved some of the high prices we see in other same style pieces. Which is fantastic news if you’re looking for a really classy vintage dress watch.
This particular watch is very peculiar, not only for it’s large size for the period, at almost 38mm this was a very large watch for the time, nowadays it’s just perfect! Also the case shape and in particular the lugs, more known as fancy lugs due to their worked shape.
The dial is an example of pure elegance! Super clean, small seconds at 6’, applied indexes and logo and exquisite onyx inserts at the 3, 9 and 12 indexes and also the hands.
