1955 Longines Over-sized gents watch SOLD

Here’s a very elegant and classic vintage Longines gents watch, which is powered by the highly regarded 12.68Z calibre movement. The watch is approx 38mm across without the crown, but wears much larger because of the slim bezel and large, crisp dial. The silvered dial has rose gold applied markers set off by dauphine hands. The watch is in nice original condition as you can see in the pics. The crown is signed Longines, as is the stainless steel buckle on the generic leather strap.

Longines Heritage department have confirmed the following: “The original serial number 9’559’746 identifies a stainless steel wristwatch bearing the reference 5045. It is fitted with a Longines manually wound mechanical movement, caliber 12.68ZS and was invoiced on 21 October 1955 to the company Girod, which was at that time our agent for Spain.”
