Longines 5078 from 1977
Presenting the elegant Longines 5078, a distinguished gold-filled rectangular timepiece with a timeless allure, now available for those who appreciate the essence of classic dress watches.
The Longines 5078 embodies the very essence of refined aesthetics, with its gracefully rounded edges and short lugs exuding an aura of understated elegance. Its dimensions, measuring a generous 27mm in width and 37mm lug to lug, earn it the esteemed title of a "jumbo" for its era, making it a cherished find for vintage watch aficionados who seek a timepiece with commanding wrist presence.
The vertically brushed champagne dial showcases a tasteful minimalism, with only the iconic Longines logo gracing its surface. The svelte baton hands and indices, elegantly adorned with black paint, ensure exceptional legibility against the champagne backdrop, attesting to Longines' commitment to form and function.
At the heart of this horological masterpiece lies the Longines hand-winding calibre 847.4, a simple yet precise two-handed movement that harmoniously aligns with the watch's slender 6mm thickness, ensuring an impeccable fit on the wrist.
Rest assured, this watch is preserved in immaculate condition, showing minimal signs of usage that bear testament to its care over time. Light hints of aging gracefully accent the dial, further enriching its vintage charm. The hands, a picture of timeless elegance, remain untouched by the passage of time. The crystal, a window to its sophistication, stands unmarred, offering an unobstructed view.
To elevate its sophistication, the watch is adorned with a brand new handmade top-grained leather strap completed with its original buckle.
