Ultra Rare Vintage Longines Exploding Numbers Huge Solid 14K Rose 1915 Wow
Every once in awhile you get a chance to own a watch that is truly special, perfect, and original. This one is a showstopper! Many of these massive deco / nouveau tonneau watches were made for the Russian market, and are sometimes connected to the Russian imperial court circa 1915; I've seen similar antique examples from Omega, Moser, Rolex and Cyma.
32mm x 48mm without crown or lugs. Minor imperfections are seen, such as where the case meets the crystal between 5 and 6. Excellent original sterling silver dial with glass enamel numerals. The dial has a lovely patina, which can be cleaned to a shine if you prefer since it is sterling and not printed, but I think it's just right and would never do such a thing.
