Longines dress watches from the 30’s and 40’s occupies a niche section in vintage collecting and has a devoted following. The Sei Tacche is nicknamed so because of the six notches in the waterproof caseback. While the Tre Tacche (Three notches) Longines fetch a huge premium in the market, the Sei Tacches remain relatively affordable.
This example would have to be one of the more unique ones out there. Maintaining its original dial, it has aged and developed the most beautiful and insane patina. With tones of rust and metallic, in the sunlight, it reflects and changes its tone according to the light source. Some cracking of the lacquer has occurred around the top of the sub seconds and it looks really stunning.
Powered by the in-house calibre 12.68z, this is a solid watch with a solid movement. You will not find another with such a dial out there!
