1949 Longines Vintage Mens Midsize Rectangular Watch - 14K White Gold & 17 Diamonds


Item No. 6246

The large and striking Longines wristwatch featured in today's offering is one of the company's very fine diamond vintage dress wristwatches.

Created in the second half of 1940's, the seventeen-diamond dial watches showcase a regal style. 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.

As a mens midsize, it is well suited for someone with a small wrist.

The elegant 14K white gold case is in excellent condition. The strong and elegant black dial has just had a fresh restoration by one of the leading dial experts in North America. And the high-grade Longines movement is very clean and shows an extensive service history.

Our watchmaker has freshly cleaned and oiled the movement and installed a new mineral glass crystal. For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new Teju lizard strap 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.

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, these pieces are sought after by collectors and anyone desiring to wear a true high-grade wristwatch.
