1953 18ct Gold Longines Cal. 27M

£1,200.00

The Watch

When you take a step back and consider that this is a 18ct Yellow Gold watch from a well known and regarded Swiss brand, a good quality movement, recently serviced, oversized 37mm case and great dial design... Once all of that is considered and you see the price, this is a great buy! The great thing about this watch is you have something can very easily pass as a modern dress watch due to the larger size and design, but also something that if paired on a brown leather strap could be a great watch for the normal day to day tasks!

This watch is over 61 years old, yet is working well, looks great and I feel very confident in saying that in another 60+ years this watch will still look great and still be desirable! This watch comes from a good home and was worn by the original owner until passed down, it was then professionally serviced and now has now come to my desk to have the privilege of selling!

Points of Mention

The watch was professionally serviced in June 2018. The watch is 18ct yellow gold as hallmarked on the inside of the case, it is also Swiss Cased as opposed to the more common South American cases, gold can be soft and mark easier than stainless steel, whilst the watch is in overall good condition for its age signs of wear and age will be seen.

Personal Note

I don't think it gets much better than this if you want an over-sized (By vintage standards) full gold dress watch from a good brand that won't break the bank! I absolutely adore the dial with the sub seconds, the long and broad leaf hands and the applied gold tone Arabic numerals! This watch packs a lot of punch for the price!
