Vintage mid century 14k white gold diamond dial Longines mans wrist watch, "The Coolidge", in the original presentation box with booklet. This would have originally been a mans watch back in the day, but by today's standards this would be considered unisex and is appropriate for a man or a woman. The case measures 1-1/2" from lug tip to tip (36mm) x 1-1/16" wide, not including the width of the winding crown. Off white eggshell or champagne metal dial with bezel set diamond indices and simple baton hands. With sub seconds dial, mechanical wind up 17 jewel movement. We have added a very handsome dark gray genuine crocodile top stitched 18mm wide watch strap. Total length is 8-7/8" with 6 hole adjustments on the band and single wide band carrier. The back of the case has a brushed finish. It is hallmarked and maker marked "Longines 14K Gold" on the inside back of the case and "14K Gold" on the outside of the case. In excellent very well cared for condition. High quality weighty case. Circa mid century 1950s.
My husband, who is a watch repairman, has freshly serviced (cleaned oiled and timed) this watch. The watch is running well and keeping excellent time, winds and sets smoothly, however, we make no guarantee towards this watches performance in the future. Most watch collectors already know the following but I thought we should include it: We strongly suggest keeping this watch away from any electromagnetic field, as this can cause a condition known as magnetism, and these vintage watches were produced before anti-magnetic watches were commonly in use. Remember this was made long before personal computers, speakers in automobiles, and cell phones, all of which emit these electromagnetic fields. It is not a common occurrence, but it is a possibility.
