This watch is exceptional in its own right. She has a lovely 17 jewel, 14k 0.585 yellow gold casing, glass front that shows minimal wear, beautiful rope band with 1/20 12k gold filled clasp.
I had her serviced on 4-01-15 and she runs beautifully! She comes with her ORIGINAL everything which is a rarity!!! She has the original box, the original velvet inside, the original directions, pamphlet, metal band and history!
With the serial number she shows to be a 1946, although inside the book, it has a date of 1947. I am going by the serial number on the actual watch movement.
The casing was also made by Longines and if you look at photos you will see it says 14k - 0.585. 585 is European gold number for 14k and the name of Longines.
The actual face of the watch does have specs of paint missing, although it doesn't take away from an extremely beautiful fine designer watch and the histroy that goes with it. Along with all of the original everything!!! Serial number 7393038.
I tried to take multiple photos for you to see. Please come by and take a look at this beauty and all she has to offer. She is extremely lovely! $489.00
