SOLD - Vintage 1940's New Old Stock Longines Masculine Tank in 14k Gold and Rare Dial
This Longines has really never been worn as far as I can tell. I can guarantee that everything about the watch is original. Take a look at the original factory finish of the case...amazing! The shape of the tank with the blocks of gold on the edges gives it a very masculine look. The case and lugs are designed in a way that the watch sits extremely well on the wrist. The original strap and buckle are in outstanding condition. The watch was opened and serviced by my watchmaker prior to this listing for service, so I didn't have an opportunity to take a picture of the movement, and the watch is so pristine I don't want to open it again and leave an opening mark. The movement is a manual wind 17 jeweled movement in the 300 series of in-house Longines movements, likely a 370. The dial on this watch is a rare bird; exquisitely finished matte texture on the top half of the dial and the bottom half also has hand finished texturing in the reverse direction. The color is a light cream color finished over a sterling silver base dial with 14k gold applied indices and dauphine hands, my personal favorite. This tank is one of the best-executed tanks from Longines we've offered. You really cannot get better than this. The watch performs flawlessly. Thank you.
