An Extravagant 9 Karat Gold Longines Calatrava from 1966 Featuring the Calibre 30L Manual Wound Sub-second Movement

Longines is a Swiss luxury watchmaker with a rich history that dates back to its founding in 1832 by Auguste Agassiz in the town of Saint-Imier, Switzerland. The brand is known for producing high-quality and elegant timepieces, and it has established itself as one of the oldest and most respected watchmaking companies in the world.

Over the years, Longines has been associated with various sporting events, particularly in the realms of equestrian sports, aviation, and tennis. The brand is recognized for its precision and expertise in watchmaking, and it has a strong heritage in producing both mechanical and quartz watches.

What’s on Offer

This Longines Calatrava is the perfect example of a vintage dress. Dating back to 1966, this watch looks like it has just rolled out of the factory. For starters the dial is exceptional, the soft white colour looks brilliant against the gold features and the "Explorer" style Arabic quarter markers add a real touch of class. 

Evaluating the case condition of this watch, very minor light blemishes can be found on the outer ring and caseback. Other than this it is in beautiful condition for its age. Paired with a stylish leather strap, it is the epitome of a vintage dress watch.

The internal aspects of this include the Longines Calibre 30L sub-second movement with 17 jewels and offering a power reserve of 43 hours.
