The world's most honored timepieces...
Longines is known for creating some of the most technically innovative and attractive timepieces in the world. Once worn by Audrey Hepburn, Longines watches now adorn the wrists of Steffi Graf, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, and Chi Ling Lin. The company's vintage wristwatches rank with those of Jaeger-LeCoultre among the Swiss firms from the era.
We are pleased to offer the wonderful retro styled ladies Longines featured here accompanied by its original bracelet. Crafted from white gold and bejeweled with three factory set diamonds, the watch case possess a distinctive style. The band is original and white gold-filled.
The dial is done in a "Museum Watch" style. The design inspiration for these dial with no numbers came from the idea that time is not known by a number sequence, but rather by the position of the sun as the earth rotates. On this dial, one single diamond was placed at the 12 o-clock position to symbolize the sun at its peak at noon.
We were fortunate to acquire the watch in such pleasing original condition appearing to have been stored away for much of its lifetime.
Our watchmaker has freshly serviced the movement, which is quite pristine. 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.
