DEBONAIRE~60s LONGINES-WITTNAUER GENT'S CROSSHAIRS AUTOMATIC

Regular price $550.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS GORGEOUS LONGINES-WITTNAUER GENT'S DRESS WATCH WITH A SPECTACULAR BLACK GLOSS CROSSHAIRS DIAL.  

 

CASE: MINTY SOLID STEEL CASE WITH ROBUST SCREW-BACK CASE MEASURING A NICE 34mm NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL SIGNED CROWN BY 43.6mm LUG TO LUG. THIS IS ONE OF THE MORE BEAUTIFUL CASES PRODUCED BY THE LONGINES-WITTNAUER COMPANY IN MY OPINION.  JUST LOOK AT THOSE ELEGANT LONG SCULPTED LUGS WITH THOSE SHARP CHAMFERS.  THIS REMINDS ME OF THE 34mm ROLEX OYSTER CASES OF THE SAME ERA WITH THE BROAD LUGS, THIN BEZEL, WIDE DIAL, AND LONGER LUG TO LUG MEASUREMENT WHICH MAKES THIS WEAR MUCH LARGER THAN THE DIMENSIONS WOULD SUGGEST.  

 

DIAL: THIS IS AS CLASSIC AS IT GETS. CHECKOUT THAT LOVELY INKY BLACK GLOSS DIAL IN NEAR MINT CONDITION WITH THOSE WICKED CROSSHAIRS. I LOVE THOSE HEAVY APPLIED STEEL ARROW MARKERS WHICH ADD SOME NICE DEPTH TO THIS DIAL SO FANTASTIC.  YOU GOTTA DIG THAT LUMED DAUPHINE HANDSET WHICH REALLY MAKES THE WHOLE DIAL BURST INTO LIFE. 

 

MOVEMENT: THIS GENTLEMAN RUNS ON A 17 JEWEL SWISS MADE IN-HOUSE LONGINES/WITTNAUER 11SN AUTOMATIC WHICH IS RUNNING STRONG AND KEEPING GOOD TIME. 

 

WATCH IS MOUNTED ON WHAT MIGHT BE THE ORIGINAL KREISLER BRACELET WHICH HAS THE STRETCH EXPANSION LINKS ON THE BACKSIDE WHICH LOOKS MEGA SUAVE ON THIS WITTY.  I JUST ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE STYLE AND PANACHE OF THIS DRESS WATCH.  THIS ONE COMES WITH ITS ORIGINAL BOX. WITTNAUR AND LONGINES FROM THIS TIMEPERIOD IS INCREDIBLY SWANKY, AND THIS ONE IS NO EXCEPTION.
