Longines Cal. 37.9 circa 1935 | steel manually wound pocket watch

Dating to the mid 1930s, this stylish Longines pocket watch reflects the Art Deco period’s preference for slim ‘dress’ watches. At the time this watch was made, Swiss exports of wristwatches had only just exceeded those of pocket watches and despite the popularity of the wristlet, the market for the traditional pocket timepiece continued. Showing signs of light use only, this watch is in excellent original condition. The silvered dial has black Arabic numerals surrounded by a black ring with minute track above and there are traditional blued steel ‘moon’ hands. Cased in steel with combinations of polished and satin finishes the bezels are stepped and faceted to both the front and back of the case.

This watch is powered by the Longines 13”’ calibre 37.9 which the watchmaker first introduced in 1932.
