Longines Grand Prize
Longines made so many great lines of watches, including the Conquest, Flagship and Admiral. However, there is one lesser known line that is under the radar, and that’s the Grand Prize. This example has a clean and simple approx. 35mm steel case with understated straight lugs. But the dial is anything but understated. The faceted applied steel hour markers are in a fantastic Art Deco font that is truly gorgeous. I have a similar watch to this with the same markers and let me tell you, it looks even better in person. The hands are what I like to call ‘skyscraper’ style, and they compliment the hours perfectly. There looks to be a very mild patina on the dial, but it still looks great. Original small Longines signed crown. Seller states the watch runs. Sadly there is no picture of the movement as the case is of the front loading type.
