A handsome late 1940s Longines wristwatch, this model has rounded case sides and distinctive elongated downturned lugs. The silvered dial has an attractive and unusual combination of gilded Roman and dot hour indexes. Manually wound, this watch is powered by Longines’ calibre 12.68Z movement.
We have fitted this watch with a handmade Christopher Clarke for Black Bough pig skin pull-through watch strap.
The case back has a friction fitted closure, a standard form for the period of production. The adherence has slightly worn with age and therefore during servicing it has been further secured with a special removable adhesive to ensure that it can be safely removed again in the future.
