Description

Longines is one of the oldest Swiss watch manufacturers with an unparalleled history of invention, innovation, patents and awards. They are also responsible for some of the most beautiful watches ever made and here we have a wonderful example from 1956 when technically, Longines were competing head to head and beating almost all the Swiss watch manufacturers.

This is a classic Longines manual wind dress watch with a subsidiary seconds dial and in solid 18ct pink gold. This watch has previously been restored to a high standard so we have simply given the watch a full inspection and service and fitted a new ‘croc’ leather strap.

The Dial

Silver with pink gold hands and numerals / hour markers and a subsidiary seconds dial at 6 o’clock. The dial has previously been restored to a high standard and the hands and hour markers are showing a gentle patina / ageing which adds to the charm and style of this watch.

The Movement

The 17 Jewel Calibre 27 movement is in sparkling condition and has obviously been very well cared for and never exposed to water or dampness. Our watch maker has fully inspected and serviced the movement and we have no hesitation in offering a full 12 months warranty on this watch*.  The watch was tested following the service on 7th March 2016 was running within + 10 secs/day which is truly excellent for a watch of this period. The movement is signed ‘Longines 17 Jewels Swiss’ and with the serial number 10,141,xxx and Calibre 27 . The serial number firmly dates this watch to 1956.

*12 months warranty only applicable if the listed price is paid.

The Case

The substantial 18ct solid pink gold case measures 35mm, not including the original Longines crown. The case is in superb condition and the rounded case-back is particularly impressive, showing no dents, scratches or any other damage, visible to the naked eye.

The Strap & Buckle

A good quality dark brown ‘croc’ leather strap is fitted with a gold plated buckle. If a different colour or style of strap is preferred we will do our best to oblige, free of charge!

The Box and Papers

Although there are no original papers with this watch the numbers and markings are all correct, corresponding with the date of the watch. A detailed written receipt and warranty and a separate insurance valuation for the replacement value will be provided at the time of sale. We will also provide you with a separate Vintage Gold Watches ‘Lifetime Authenticity Guarantee’.

The watch will be supplied in the new good quality presentation box. If a matching vintage Longines box is required we can supply one with this watch, at the price we have paid for the box. We usually have at least one or two in stock and we will send you photographs of these if requested.

In Conclusion

We have always admired vintage Longines and have never been able to understand why they have been so overlooked for so long. Technically these watches hold their own and are often superior to much more famous brands such as say for example …. Rolex! Whatever the reasons they represent amazingly good value just now, considering the quality and excellent pedigree. However, we recommend you to be quick as we have seen prices of vintage Longines bouncing back over the past 2 – 3 years.

This is a desirable and highly collectable vintage gold watch from one of horology’s most respected names and one which which will provide an excellent financial investment as well as something to treasure and enjoy!
