1926 Longines Sterling Silver Cal. 11.84N
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 railroad dial example from 1926 is a fantastic example of this trend with its gorgeous blend of aggressive lines and curved steel.

The 28-millimeter sterling silver case gracefully shows its near-century of life. The lugs are a beautifully curved shape with just the right amount of length for the size of the case. The watch also features a hunter case back giving a view of the fantastic, manually wound Longines Cal. 11.84n movement.
This Longines shows off a gorgeous railroad-style dial with thick, radium, Arabic numerals. The hour markers sit on top of a beautifully aged midsection of the dial, having turned a fantastic multi-shade of cream and brown. This surrounds a grey inner dial and is surrounded in turn by a black and white outer minute track. The dial also shows off a small sub-seconds counter at 6 o'clock and beautifully aged radium cathedral hands. The minute hand is missing most of the lume in its window nearest the hand stack.
None. The watch is keeping time, previous service history is unknown.
