Longines Ref. 7111 -1 invoiced 6 May 1960 | steel vintage wristwatch
This Longines wristwatch has an unusual and distinctive dial with a champagne ‘linen textured’ finish. There are incised baton indexes which have a polished finish, these catch the light as it travels across the dial’s surface. Beneath the dial’s signature, the Longines winged hour glass logo has engraved detailing and is applied to the surface. The stainless steel case, which has the original Longines winding crown, is relatively large for the period of production with a diameter of 35mm and there are long, slender lugs that are gently downturned. We have fitted the watch with a new, unsigned, steel Milanese watch bracelet – this can be replaced with a leather strap if preferred.
The Longines Archives confirm that this watch was invoiced to the watchmaker’s UK agent, Baume, on 6 May 1960.
