Scarce Longines “President Arthur II” men’s Retro Modern design wristwatch in solid 14K yellow gold, circa 1953.
The "President Arthur II" has a massive gold case (almost 14 grams) with large, faceted lugs. This example is in excellent condition showing only very light wear. There is a tiny bit of play in the lugs where they attach to the main case body. Caseback is superb and unengraved. The case measures 40mm long and 24mm wide. Textured black dial is divided into quadrants and has solid gold pyramid markers. Has new glass crystal. This watch is powered by its correct 17-jewel Longines grade 22L manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong.
