Longines 14K YG Theo H Davies Co. Hawaii Presentation 1945

$2,250.00

An extremely interesting and historic 14K YG stepped case Longines dress model with screw down case back with hand engraved presentation dated 1945. Featuring a 33 X 40mm stepped bezel case with heavy sloped lugs, and with screw down caseback. Featuring an original matte silver patina’d dial with wrapping raised gold arabic figs and leaf style gilt hands. Powered by caliber 23M manual wind movement with center seconds and with unsigned original finely milled edge crown.

The case back features an engraving that reads as follows: “Presented to H. M. Mackenzie by Theo H Davies & Co Ltd in Appreciation of Twenty-Five Years Association with the Firm August 1, 1920-1945.” See close up photo of engraving which also shows deep struck #13 case stamp on caseback and lug.

Theo H Davies was a prominent and highly successful trading company involved in sugar plantations, shipping and trading and related industries between Hawaii, England, and the U.S. The origins of the company date back to 1845 England. While we have not found any information about the recipient of this fine watch, we can assume that H. M. MacKenzie was an important figure in the company’s businesses to have received such a fine watch and dedication.

This interesting vintage model has been recently serviced and and is offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate time keeping and operation. The watch is offered on a vintage Longines signed tan leather strap with early style 1/20 GF tang buckle. We have not yet requested archives from Longines for this watch. Your purchase includes our popular leather pouch, ideal for travel or storage, a $55.00 value.
