Scarce Longines "Jubilee Diamond Dial" men's Retro Modern design watch in solid 14K white gold, circa 1950.
This large Longines has a beveled case with faceted lugs and dial with 17 genuine diamonds. The case is made by Longines' U.S. sales agent... Kaspar & Esh of New York and it was priced at $295.00 in 1950. It is is in excellent condition showing only light wear, and a small ding at the top of the bezel near the 11 o'clock marker between the lugs. Caseback is superb and unengraved. The case measures 40mm long and 25mm wide. Dial is excellent, with the hour markers set with 17 diamonds. Has new faceted glass crystal. The watch is powered by its correct 17-jewel Longines grade 22L manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong. I also have a period 14K white gold bracelet that was found with this watch. It is available for an additional cost.
