1950's Longines Vintage Mystery Dial Admiral 1200 Watch - 10K Gold Filled


Item No. 4694

At the intersection of Art and Timekeeping reside some of the most beautiful creations to come out of the fine Swiss watchmaking firms.

To captivate their clientele in vintage times, the Longines offered an object d'art called the mystery dial, named after the way the hour marker seemed to mysteriously float around dial, unattached to the rest of the watch yet keeping perfect time.

Here are some of this watch's qualities:

* Mystery dial featuring an 'invisible' revolving disk equipped with a gold starburst hour marker, appearing to float around the dial as the watch registers the time

* Very high-quality automatic Longines movement, showcasing top tier Swiss craftsmanship from the era

* Elegant gold filled Admiral case

* Distinctive silver dial with large gold indexes and outer guilloche section

The watch is fully original down to the dial, hand, and signed crown.

Our watchmaker has cleaned and oiled the movement. 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.
