A Charming Vintage Longines Dress Watch with an Explorer Style Dial with a 9k Gold Dennison Case, c.1955

Longines was founded in Saint-Imier in 1832 by Auguste Agassiz, a Swiss watchmaker and brother of biologist Louis Agassiz. Auguste had two partners, lawyers Henri Raiguel and Florian Morel; the company's original name was Raiguel Jeune & Cie.

What’s On Offer 

The epitome of the classic Longines vintage gold dress watch, this beautiful timepiece is in absolutely superb vintage condition! Described as an 'Explorer Dial' due to the quarter Arabics, the time-only dial is wonderfully simple with applied gold furniture and stylish Dauphine hands. The dial is also in superb condition - not a blemish to be found! Acrylic crystal encapsulates the dial which is encased in a 9k gold Dennison case. We have paired the watch with an orange contrast stitch leather strap which sets the dial off perfectly, however, if you wish to choose a different strap we are happy to change it for you. This watch runs well, keeps good time and wears beautifully on the wrist, it's suitable for both casual and formal wear and is very light and comfortable. A charismatic watch from a prestigious brand, a very worthy addition to any collection!
