empressissi™ is pleased to offer this unique post World War II era dress watch in the exotic Palladium precious metal, similar in characteristics and tone to Platinum. This watch was retailed by the famous Philadelphia Jeweler J.E. Caldwell.
The watch houses a 8LN high grade caliber running on 17 jewels with sub seconds hand. It is cased in a classic small Palladium white tone case and comes with mint acrylic crystal and good crown.
The dial is factory original in Sterling silver with hard enamel print and has genuine diamonds set in cabochons on top. It comes with the original set of hands.
This uncommon Longines watch measures 22mm side to side (excluding crown) and 31mm from top lug to bottom lug and is rather small even in vintage standards.
