Longines SS “All Guard” Automatic circa 1960

SOLD

A great looking vintage Longines SS “All Guard” automatic circa 1960. Featuring a robust design 35 X 43mm case with wide bezel, heavy lugs, acrylic crystal and screw down case back. With warmly patina’d original once silver satin dial with applied, flared and faceted silver indexes and tapered sword hands. Powered by self winding Longines 19AS movement with sweep seconds. With distinctive signed original crown with bead design.

The caseback tells the story of the “All Guard.” The heavy screwdown caseback bears a large and deeply engraved LONGINES name, and further documents this as a watch for rugged conditions of wear with all of the following prominently engraved on the case back; “Lifeguard,” “Synchro-Guard,” “Shock-Guard.” and Water-Guard.”

The “All Guard” model was a robust design model and a rival to the more well known Omega Seamasters and Constellations of the era. We think these models are over looked and neglected in today’s market. The current example has rich, warm patina and is a stand out on any wrist.

Offered on your choice of sporty or dressy strap. Just fully serviced and offered with our 1 year warrantee of accurate time keeping and operation. Your purchase includes our popular leather watch pouch, ideal for travel or storage, a $55.00 value.
