Notes

Launched in 1957, the flagship collection was destined to become a leading collection for Longines. It was in 1970 that the collection began to diversify, o"ering numerous variations of colors and shapes, adapting perfectly to the tastes of the times.
This model was produced in 1974 and comes with the Extract from the Archives. Housing the caliber 817, this watch was invoiced on May 28, 1979 to Al Batel, Longines’s retailer in Kuwait.
Preserved in very good condition, its combination of coral, onyx, yellow gold and diamonds, rare to find, perfectly reflects the spirit of the 1970s.
