An extremely rare and sharp Art Deco style Longines in Staybrite stainless steel from 1935. The black dial makes this watch especialy unique, I have never seen another. These steel tanks were produced in very limited numbers by the Longines factory. The number on the inside back of the case directly below the serial number indicates that this was the 43rd produced in the series. A dust cover which fits over the movement was added for extra protection from the elements. While the dial does have a couple of small scuffs it is in overall amazing shape considering its color. A rare and classy timepiece from a top swiss house.
