empressissi™ is pleased to offer this very early and sought after Art Deco watch for men from the beginning of the 20th century in gold filled case. It is relatively a large watch for the period, ready to wear, gift or add to your collection.
The watch houses a rare and early 12.92 manual wind caliber running on 15 jewels. It is cased in a classic cushion shaped Wadsworth 14K yellow gold filled case with floral side decorations, overall very good condition with a point of wear on the back and minimal signs on the lug corners. It comes with a near mint cellulose crystal and original crown.
The dial is a factory original hard enamel dial with Art Deco classic Arabic numerals with recently restored luminous numerals, carefully hand painted in our atelier with non-toxic Super-Luminova™ material. The same material was applied to the original set of decorated skeleton hands as well.
This rare Longines watch measures 31mm side to side (excluding crown) and 39mm from top lug to bottom lug and is modest in size even for a vintage watch.
Attached to this watch is a quality brand new padded genuine leather band in black, 18mm wide, with anti-allergic buckle in white tone.
