18kt Yellow Gold
Here we have a very early model of Longines' 'Conquest' line. This model was created in 1954, and has continued until this present day. This particular watch is from 1955 and therefore one of the first editions (along with a stainless steel version). This watch oozes 50s style, with applied arrowhead markers and Longines Logo, an inner minute track (giving it a more pie pan effect) and a 'wave and stars' medallion on the case back.
The dial is very clean and appears to have gone a professional restoration at some point in the past. It is matte silver with gold features and fine looped font.
The case is not small with a diameter of 35mm and depth of 8mm to accommodate for the automatic movement.
The 18kt gold case is thick, and with a 12 sided polygon design screw down case back has a sturdy feel on the wrist. This may look like a very dressy watch but is also hard wearing.
This pirece has it's original Longines signed crown.
We have fitted a brown buffalo grain leather strap with a gold plated buckle to finish off the look.
This watch uses a Longines Automatic Cal 19AS
19 jewels and a power reserve of 39 hours (though this may differ due to age).
Frequency of 18000bph
The dial is very clean with only a small mark above the 6 o'clock marker, while the hands are aged and appear original.
We have given the case a light hand polish so is brght and in good condition. Only dink to the case is above the 12 oclock markers on top of the case. This only visible when you look between the lugs though and not while being worn.
The movement has been recently serviced and is keeping excellent time.
The crown winds,pulls out and sets time perfectly well.
Crystal has been polished.
Strap is brand new.
Water resistance not guaranteed.
