1955 Longines Vintage Mens Dress Watch - 14K White Gold & Diamonds


Item No. 4875

Longines made this distinctive watch for the U.S. market during the middle of the 1950's. It's easy to see how this watch came from the era that culminated with the '57 Chevy and the '59 Cadillac fin. In our opinion, it is interesting and original, yet elegant. We love its style.

The parts are all original down to the hands and crown. The dial has been restored by one of the leading experts in North America. One small dot is missing from the bottom.

Our watchmaker has freshly fully serviced the movement, which is keeping perfect time.

For the finishing touch we have fitted a new high quality crocodile strap and white tone matching buckle.

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