Longines gold vintage pocket watch, circa 1934

A rare and superb 14ct yellow gold open-faced keyless lever watch with black dial

This is an absolutely superb Longines pocket watch that is in outstanding original condition. Surely one of the most beautiful examples of the period, the black dial has a wonderfully rich, deep tone that is perfectly complimented by the gilded Arabic numerals and feuille hands. To the base of the dial, the subsidiary seconds has a very finely engine-turned centre and gilded calibrations.

Cased in 14ct yellow gold, the design of the case has the sharp chamfered bezels and slim profile so favoured by the Art Deco period, yet, interestingly, the cast decoration to the case sides is composed of flowers and foliage and harks back to an earlier period; similar motifs are found, for example, on many English watches of the early 19th century.  The manually wound Longines movement is one of the finest produced by the company with decoratively damascened plates and precision, snail-form, cam regulation. The cuvette (movement cover) is decorated with engraved medals which celebrate the prizes awarded to Longines for their achievements at the various international exhibitions held at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries.

This is a fabulous watch in a condition rarely seen from this golden era of watchmaking.
