SUBLIME~60s LONGINES ADMIRAL PIE-PAN AUTO

SUBLIME~60s LONGINES ADMIRAL PIE-PAN AUTO

Regular price $749.99 Sale

FOR SALE IS A SWANKY AND SUPER COOL MID 60s LONGINES ADMIRAL AUTOMATIC WITH AWESOME PATINA. 

  • CASE: ELEGANT GOLD FILLED CASE MEASURING IN AT 35mm NOT INCLUDING CROWN. CASE IS IN GOOD VINTAGE CONDITION WITH SOME HAIRLINE SCRATCHES THROUGHOUT AND A TINY BIT OF GOLD THINNING AT THE LUG TIPS. I LOVE THE PRESENTATION ON THE BACK OF THE CASE TO AN EMPLOYEE OF SUN LIFE ASSURANCE BACK IN 1968.

 

  • DIAL: THIS IS A DAMN SEXY FACE. SUCH A COOL AND UNIQUE LOOK WITH THAT PIE PAN TREATMENT AND THE FLORENTINE FINISH ON THOSE RAISED GOLD MARKERS. ALL TIED TOGETHER BY THE CHARACTERISTICALLY LONGINES EMPIRE HANDS. ONE OF THE CLASSIEST DIALS WITH JUST A SUBTLE HINT OF PATINA

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS WELL MANNERED ADMIRAL RUNS ON AN IN-HOUSE LONGINES CAL.342. WATCH WAS OBTAINED FROM A COLLECTOR WHO HAD RECENTLY SERVICED IT. THIS WAS A UNIQUE CALIBER FOR THE COMPANY EMPLOYING AN INNOVATIVE PERIPHERAL GEAR OUT OF CENTER DESIGN. I WAS UNABLE TO PHOTOGRAPH THE MOVEMENT SINCE IT’S A TOP LOADER. THE PIC WAS TAKEN FROM ANOTHER WATCH.

 

    THIS LONGINES COMES ON A DARK BROWN LEATHER STRAP WHICH PLAYS NICE WITH THE PATINA. THESE MID 60s LONGINES ARE EASILY THE EQUIVALENT OF THE ROLEX OYSTER PERPETUALS AND OMEGA CONSTELLATIONS OF THE TIME.  IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR  SOMETHING THAT'S EXTRA CLASSIC WITH TONS OF CHARACTER FROM ONE OF THE MOST ICONIC VINTAGE WATCH BRANDS, THIS IS ONE YOU SHOULD TAKE A DEEPER LOOK AT.
