Longines Ref. 8888 /1 steel vintage wristwatch, circa 1962

A stainless steel manually wound wristwatch with subsidiary seconds

Reference 8888 is a relatively large vintage Longines with a case diameter of 35mm. In good original condition, this watch retains an excellent lustre to the dial, clean chamfers to the edges of the lugs and the original winding crown. The dial has a handsome combination of raised Arabic numerals at the quarters and incised pointed batons at the intervening hours. To retain the clean definition of the case’s angles and edges, it has not been polished during servicing and there are, therefore, some light scuffs and scratches to the case’s surface.

This watch retains its original Longines pin buckle which has been fitted to a new Hirsch leather strap.
