1954 Longines Vintage Mens Watch, 10K Gold Filled - Pointed Hourglass


Item No. 4237

Popularized in the late 1940's, the "Hour-Glass" shape was one of the most elegant forms from the period, exhibiting graceful lines and perfect symmetry. As the boldness of the fifties design sensibilities took hold, their form became much more angular and even somewhat avante garde.

Today's offering showcases this striking "pointed hourglass" watch by Longines from the era that culminated with designs like the '57 Chevy and '59 Cadillac.

Besides it wonderful case, it also showcases a distinctive two-tone dial, completing its show-stopping design.

We are pleased to offer this after finishing our sympathetic restoration. With the exception of the winding crown and correct new-old-stock crystal all of its part are original to the watch. It presents beautifully!

The striking dial was refinished by one of the leading dial companies in North America. The case presents as just short of mint with one pin prick of wear on the back not visible when it's being worn.

As part of the restoration our watchmaker has cleaned and oiled the movement, which is keeping very accurate time, and installed a new-old-stock faceted Longines crystal.

For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new genuine 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 and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
