The Watch

Longines was founded in 1832 by Auguste Agassiz and is considered to be the oldest registered watch brand. Famously, Lindbergh, the aviator, and adventurer worked with Longines to create the Hour Angle watch in 1927. They are also the official timekeeper for the French Open.

The 35 mm stainless steel case has an all polished finish. A slim profile, elegant tapering, and chamfered lugs that providing a comfortable fit. On the right side, a signed crown. Its slim polished beveled bezel holds a domed crystal. The white dial has slim gold batons and applied Arabic numerals at 12,3,6 and 9, the elegance continues with Feuille watch hands, at 6 o'clock sits the 60 seconds register. On the back, we find a plain stainless steel case back. Inside a Manually Wound Manually Wound Longines Cal. 23Z 17 Jewels, 18,000 Beats per hour. Fitted on an 18 mm tan leather strap with quick release.

Points of Mention


This watch is sold as "Watch Only" and therefore comes with no original Longines box or original Longines paperwork. The watch comes paired on an aftermarket leather strap with quick release. The watch is from Circa. 1963 based on the serial number on the movement. The dial appears to have been refinished, what I suspect to be, 10/20 years ago. The watch still features its original Longines signed crown. The watch has received a service and comes with our 12-Months NON-Waterproof Warranty.

Personal Note

You can never go wrong with a classic Longines dress watch, this is exactly that and it looks fantastic at 35mm, thankfully it also features a great lug to lug length of 43mm giving it a very nice feel on the wrist.
