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. The enamel is 98%, with only a scratch at the 5. Most examples are filled in with paint; not this one! Working perfectly and keeping good time. Professionally serviced by my master watchmaker who pronounced the movement in great shape -- which is rare with these early pieces which have been through the war, or a few. May you love your new watch as I have! The item "Ultra Rare Vintage Longines Exploding Numbers Huge Solid 14K Rose 1915 Wow" is in sale since Monday, January 7, 2019.
