Longines is known for creating some of the most technically innovative and attractive timepieces in the world. Once worn by Humphrey Bogart and Audrey Hepburn, these pieces are sought after by serious collectors, Hollywood celebrities, and anyone desiring to wear a true world-class wristwatch. Longines' vintage wristwatches rank with Jaeger-LeCoultre among the fine Swiss firms

The beautiful Longines wristwatch featured in today's auction is one of the company's highly collectable vintage dress wristwatches. Created in the 1940's, the seventeen-diamond dial model stood for all that was prestigious and regal, and it captured the essence of the rewards available to those who through hard work and dedication achieved a position of leadership in law, medicine, business.

Most often found in 14K gold, Longines encased our example in Palladium (in the Platinum group of precious metals), sparing no expense in the materials.
