Longines Ref. 7135 steel vintage wristwatch, circa 1958
A stainless steel manually wound wristwatch with two-tone dial
This vintage Longines wristwatch has an extremely characterful dial with a strong two-tone finish and highly unusual, caret-form minute markers. The applied white metal indexes comprise of flat Arabic numerals at the quarters and multi-faceted lozenge indexes at the intervening hours. There is light oxidation to the dial surface, a scratch/depression by the numeral at 5 o’clock and some scuffing at the dial’s edge. The stainless steel case is attractively proportioned with good shaping to the lugs; there are a couple of light scratches to the snap-on case back and the winding crown is a plain replacement.
