1956 Longines Automatic (Ref. 2220-P)
For decades Longines created some of the most beautiful and versatile watches in the world. Year after year pumping out beauty and reliability, seemingly in competition with only themselves. This Ref. 2220-P is a fantastic example of this trend with its gorgeous blend of sharp lines and curved steel.
|Bracelet||2pc Handmade Leather Strap|
The 33mm stainless steel case is in fantastic condition with beautiful and long three-faced lugs. The length of the lugs creates a more imposing presence on the wrist than the 33mm size would suggest. The watch also features a screw-down, stainless steel case back and comes supplied 2pc handmade leather strap.
The deep black dial is simply gorgeous. Besides some very light spotting and a couple of missing radium dots, it is immaculate. It features an inner and outer dial, the former showcasing a beautiful crosshair design and small subseconds register while the latter houses the mix of applied steel chevron and arabic markers. The dial also shows off an applied steel Longines logo and gorgeous dauphine hands.
None. The watch is keeping time, previous service history is unknown.
