HKD20,000 - 50,000: An Insanely Mint Longines Art Deco Dress Watch
Now let's move on to discuss the dial and hands. The dial contains a few features that could make any serious vintage watch collector's heart race. First of all, You have what we call a "Sector" dial (the dial looks like it's cut into several sections along the hour markers, kind of like the crusts of a pizza), a feature seldom seen in new releases these days anymore, perhaps except for products from Laurent Ferrier. Secondly, the ring of minute markers outside of the hour markers, also known as the "Railway" dial is yet another decidedly favourable vintage element. The hands in blue steel compliment the gold case and creamy dial very ideally, providing even more visual interests. All in all, this has ticked all the right boxes for a textbook dress watch from the bygone era when Art Deco was still the guiding decorative principle to anything ranging from a timepiece to a skyscraper. The movement? Go see for yourself. Hint: it's no less a treat to the eyes than the watch dial.
