1942 Longines Vintage Mens Unisex Watch with Rare Scroll Lugs - 18K Gold


Item No. 6447

Longines is known for creating some of the most technically innovative and attractive timepieces in the world. Once worn by Humphrey Bogart, Richard Byrd, and Charles Lindbergh, the company's vintage watches are now sought after by collectors and anyone desiring to wear a high grade wristwatch.

The company's tradition for beautiful design continued to show-up in certain models of their American market watches like this exquisite and very rare scrolled lug watch.

While nearly all of the company's solid gold watches made for the U.S. market were crafted from 14K, this rare watch has an 18K gold case, attesting to its distinctiveness and rarity.

With its scrolled lug case and salmon, this beauty has a very elegant presence. While it is larger than some rectangulars from the era, it is midsize so well-suited for anyone with a smaller wrist.

It presents in nice condition on the wrist. Its case is in excellent condition. Its dial shows only light aging.

Our watchmaker has freshly disassembled it down to the last screw and cleaned and oiled the movement - it is keeping very accurate time. For the finishing touch we have installed a brand new Teju lizard band making it ready for immediate enjoyment.

Included with the purchase is a one-year international warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate attesting to its performance.
