Regular price $550.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A HANDSOME AND SPORTY MENS 1958 LONGINES AUTOMATIC SMALL SECONDS WATCH IN EXCELLENT SHAPE

CASE: EXCELLENT CONDITION ALL-STEEL CASE  MEASURING 33.5mm NOT INCLUDING RECESSED CROWN. THIS IS A SUPER CLEAN CASE IN UNPOLISHED AND UNMOLESTED CONDITION WITH SOME HAIRLINES THROUGHOUT BUT MAINTAINING IT SHARP LINES AND CRISP LUGS. THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE LONGINE'S CASES WITH THOSE LONG SWOOPING LUGS AND BROADER LUG WIDTH(19mm) WHICH REALLY MAKES THIS WEAR MORE LIKE A 35mm SPORTS WATCH. 

 

DIAL: MINIMALISM AND SIMPLICITY DEFINED.  THE DESIGN LANGUAGE AND PROPORTIONS ON THIS ONE ARE STRAIGHT LATE 50s/EARLY 60s AT ITS BEST. SUPER SEXY APPLIED ARROW MARKERS HIGHLIGHTED BY ARABIC NUMERALS AT 12/3/6/9. TO ME, THIS ONE REALLY HAS IT ALL. I LOVE THE SMALL SECONDS AT 6.  CHECK OUT THOSE BEAUTIFULLY INTACT LUME PLOTS WHICH MATCH THE CUSTARDY TONE ON THOSE HANDSOME DAUPHINE HANDS. 

 

MOVEMENT: THIS GENTLEMAN RUNS ON A 17 JEWEL SWISS MADE IN-HOUSE LONGINES CAL.19A AUTOMATIC WHICH IS ONE OF LONGINE'S MOST DURABLE AND WELL-RESPECTED CALIBERS FROM THE PAST. SERVICE HISTORY ON THIS ONE IS UNKNOWN, BUT SHE IS TICKING AWAY BEAUTIFULLY AND KEEPING GOOD TIME. 

WATCH COMES MOUNTED ON A WELL FITTING 19mm TAPERED NUBECK STRAP WHICH BRINGS OUT THE SPORTY NATURE OF THIS GUY.  LONGINES REALLY WAS ONE OF THE FINEST WATCHMAKERS OF THIS ERA RIVALING OMEGA AND ROLEX IN MY OPINION. WITH THEIR IN-HOUSE CALIBERS, GORGEOUS DESIGNS, AND SLEEK STYLING, THERE'S A REASON WHY THESE PIECES ARE BECOMING MORE AND MORE SOUGHT AFTER.
