Longines Ref. 6875 -1 steel vintage wristwatch, circa 1958
A stainless steel manually wound centre seconds wristwatch
Seldom seen, the Ref. 6875 is a handsome Longines model with a 35mm diameter case that has pronounced, tapered, chamfers to the lugs and a faceted bezel. There is a screw-down case back and this example retains its original signed Longines winding crown. The silvered dial, which has a good lustre and a lovely warm patination, is set with applied gold faceted dagger indexes and matching, gilded, alpha-shaped hands. There is light oxidation to the surface of the dial. The steel case retains good definition to its angles and edges and has not been polished during servicing so there are some light scuffs and scratches.
