This is one of many Longines watches I have offered for sale.
It is a solid 9k gold gent's watch from 1936 in original, working condition.
Longines history started in the watch making area of St. Imier (Switzerland) around 1832, they specialised in timekeepers for sporting events. By 1879 they were producing chronographs and ever since they have been at the forefront of new technology. Perhaps most famous of all in their illustrious history, were the pilots watches of the 1930's, synonymous with Charles Lindbergh’s Atlantic flight.
This watch dates from 1936 and it is in good condition with the exception of a small crack on the bezel (please see the photos). The solid gold case (9k) has a diameter of 31mm excluding the lugs and original winding crown.
The case inner shows Longines agent's markings of Arthur Baume. Alongside their initials are the London import Assay 9k gold hallmarks for 1936 and a reference of 535054.
The original dial features a clear printed 'Longines' signature and the Arabic hours and hands are in black to match with the exception of the red 12. The original hands are cathedral in style with subsidiary seconds.
The stunning movement is superb as one would expect from Longines. The cailber 27.0 bears a serial number of 5350548 and is of course signed ‘Longines’. The watch functions perfectly and keeps good time having been last serviced in 2017.
The watch comes on a part worn, black, leather leather strap.
