Longines Ref. 7111 -1 steel vintage wristwatch, circa 1959
A stainless steel manually wound wristwatch
This Longines wristwatch has an unusual and distinctive dial with a ‘linen textured’ finish. There are incised silvered baton indexes which have a polished finish, catching 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, slim lugs that are gently down-turned.
We have fitted this watch with a new, unsigned, stainless steel Milanese watch bracelet with adjustable clasp.
