This is a cool and unique oversized Longines dress reference from the late 1950's. The reference features a large for the era 37 x 46mm heavy snap back case with extended lugs, a domed acrylic crystal, matte silver dial with raised gold tapered indexes and tapered gilt dauphine hands.
The reference 5045 is powered by Longines caliber 12.68Z manual wind movement. An impressive and great looking oversize vintage model with a simple, but robust design not unlike the oversize Patek Calatrava model of the same era.
