1956 Longines Vintage Mens Dress Watch, 10K Gold Filled - Hourlgass Shape


Item No. 4699

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

It has a shape somewhat suggestive of an hourglass.

It is original down to the ribbed four quadrant dial and hands. Please inquire if you would like the dial restored.

Our watchmaker has freshly cleaned and oiled the high-grade movement, which is running very true.

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.


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, celebrities, and anyone desiring to wear a very fine wristwatch.
