SOLD LONGINES 14K Solid Gold Gents Vintage Watch Diamond Bezel Knotted Lugs 1947

An absolutely stunning Longines 14 carat solid gold gentleman’s watch dating to 1947 in excellent overall condition. Longines, in my opinion, produced some of the most attractive watches in the world, turning items of utility into stunning pieces of jewellery. The design of this watch is one of the most elegant and beautiful I have seen from Longines (and I have collected a large number). It is the rarely seen knotted lugs model with diamonds set into the bezel. This is only the third I have been able to find during nearly twelve years of selling vintage watches. The case is in great condition, the dial presents beautifully and the movement is running strongly and keeping time. It is triple signed, on the dial, case and movement. Do please look carefully at the dimensions of the watch and bear in mind that gents watches from this period were made smaller than today. Therefore this watch will also be suitable for a lady looking for a larger watch from the 1940's, oozing with retro appeal.

Case: 14 carat solid gold in very good condition, measuring approximately 30 mm across, excluding the crown and 41 mm from lug to lug. The elegant and ornate lugs are a real feature of this watch.They are fashioned into a knot design and look stunning when the watch is worn. The bezel ring is made of 14K gold, into which twelve genuine diamonds set in solid white gold casings mark the hours. The inside of the rear cover is signed Longines and also hallmarked as 14K gold. There are the expected marks on the case inevitable from responsible and probably infrequent use but no dents or scratches of any significance that I could see to draw to your attention.

Dial: in excellent condition, finished in black enamel, signed "Longines" with an outer minutes track and a subsidiary seconds dial. The hands are in good shape and the crystal is clean and clear. The dial has been restored within the last few years.

Movement: Longines cal. 8LN movement with 17 jewels set in solid gold casings, running strongly and keeping time. The serial number dates the watch to 1947.

Strap: fitted with a new generic black leather lizard grain strap which attached to the watch measures approximately 210 mm from buckle tip to last hole.
