A Stunning Vintage Reference 6655-1, Longines Automatic With a Beautiful Waffle Dial in Beautiful Original Condition with Unusual  Crab Claw Lugs, c.1939

Compagnie des Montres Longines, Francillon S.A., or simply Longines, is a Swiss luxury watchmaker based in Saint-Imier, Switzerland. Founded by Auguste Agassiz in 1832, the company has been a subsidiary of the Swiss Swatch Group and its predecessors since 1983.

What’s On Offer 

The exquisite waffle dial is the jewel of this watch's crown, boasting arrowhead and partial Arabic polished metal applied hour plots, elegant Dauphine hands and a subtle crosshair sub-seconds dial at 6 o'clock. The dial is completed with the synonymous Longines wings and signature at 12 o'clock and is encapsulated underneath shatterproof Plexiglass. The case is crafted from stainless steel and is in nice shape and the robust crab claw lugs are a nice point of difference adding weightiness to the proportions of the watch. At 33mm this watch is very much mid-size, however, it is quite meaty and robust so on the wrist it does feel larger. A beautiful vintage watch from an iconic brand with a very unique dial - it will take the wearer from day to evening wear and everything in between.
