Longines 14K White Gold Round Case Item #2559 Price $750
A wonderful diamond dress watch C-1958 in solid 14K Gold! This elegant Longines started its life as a men’s watch in the “Mad Men” era. By today’s standards, this vintage style would look great on a men’s or ladies’ wrist.
The watch is housed in a solid 14K white gold case that measures 30mm across without the crown, and 33.3mm from lug tip to lug tip. The round case features a high polish bezel with a contrasting crosshatch border around the dial and on the extended lugs.
It also features a Longines signed silver dial. It’s accented with 4 round cut diamonds set into wide, faceted white gold settings at 12, 3, 6 and 9. The other markers are applied faceted bars capped with contrasting black centers. Matching white gold tone and black hands top it off. At 60 years old, the watch does show signs of age and use, but what’s there is very minimal.
Powering the watch is a Longines cal. 428 movement with 17 jewels and shockproofing. It comes recently serviced, during which time we completely disassembled and ultrasonically cleaned the case. It’s keeping excellent time and is ready to wear and impress on a handmade crocodile strap. A matching signed Longines buckle is the perfect finishing touch.
