A truly stunning, all original and unpolished 1935 Longines "Tre Tacche" in solid stainless steel, with rare Breguet Numeral dial in wonderful condition housed in the famous stepped bezel case with high grade 10.68Z movement within, freshly serviced here at Meticulous and ready to wear.  A gorgeous example of a superb quality timepiece that was built like a tank, initially for military use with a clear, easy to read dial in smaller, less cumbersome 30mm diameter case which is smaller for today's standards but actually looks wonderful on the wrist with the vintage, possibly original leather strap. This example is remarkably well preserved with that bright silver dial showing only a couple of tiny signs of age in an untouched case with original brushed and polished surfaces showing only light wear including the original crown.  A very rare watch to find with this dial from the heyday of the Longines watch company.
