empressissi™ is pleased to offer this top quality and sought after LONGINES automatic dress watch for men from the late 50s in a model known as 'Medallion' with classic design and state of the art movement with a unique all original black dial.
The watch houses a 19AS high grade caliber, running on 17 jewels. This 19A-19AS series was considered 'rocket science' in the 50s and is until today one of the best movements ever made by Longines. It is cased in a robust yet elegant 10K yellow gold filled case. The case has elegant coin ring around the case and comes with mint acrylic crystal and good crown.
The dial is factory original and very rare to be found in black tone with gilt print and solid gold markers, all in very good lightly aged condition and an original set of slim hands.
This eclectic Longines watch measures 33,5mm side to side (excluding crown) and 38mm from top lug to bottom lug.
Attached to this watch is a standard length brand new, 18mm wide, quality genuine leather band in paddec black tone with an unsigned anti-allergic buckle in matching tone.
