The Longines trademark, thanks to the technological research it has always dedicated to, has always been extremely efficient, innovative and beautiful timepieces. The present lot is an incredible creation of the beginning of the 20th century: powered by the caliber 15.26, this reference 3810 is a time-only, oversize creation, very groundbreaking compared to the classical standards of the period. The three-body case has flat bezel, concave lugs and hinged case back, all preserved in very nice conditions. The white enamel dial is absolutely striking, presenting big black Breguet numerals, subsidiary dial for the seconds at 6 o’clock, outer minute track with red Arabic 5-minute markers and steel Breguet hands. Very elegant and somehow contemporary, the watch also comes with a stainless steel bracelet. With the Longines Extract from the Archives confirming case, movement, production and subsequent sale on 15 October 1938 to the company Zipper, which was at that time our agent for Poland.
