Can we start a pocket watch revival?
That would be pretty cool, don’t you think?
Of course we’d have to also revive waistcoats and top hats :-)
Longines have a long history in pocket watches – with this piece celebrating 180 years in the game.
It mirrors the first pieces produced by Auguste Agassiz.
This particular model has a guilloché back cover. It opens to reveal an engraved case back in gold. The dial is white lacquer and features black painted roman numerals and blued steel hands.
It’s a 56mm piece, in 18kt yellow gold.
Movement is the manual-wind Longines caliber L878.4. This has 17 jewels, beats at 18,000 vph and carries a power reserve of 40 hours.
