A lovely lady’s wristwatch, this model has flared, horn-shaped lugs and a silvered dial with applied gold Arabic numerals. The Longines Archives note that this watch was originally invoiced to their UK agent Baume & Co on 5 September 1956. Made in 9ct yellow gold, the case has a polished finish and steeply chamfered bezel.
The watch is accompanied by its original Longines leather presentation case although the leather covering to this has degraded and is very patchy and worn.
