LONGINES 23209 RADIUM PATINA 1940s Cal 10L STAINLESS STEEL 18MM LUG ALL DIALLongines
For auction is a Longines 23209 from the 1940s with an exceptional patina dial caused by radium burn creating a completely unique look. This watch is the exception: that a 33mm watch is too small. This one isn't. It just isn't. The 18mm lug width and 42mm lug to lug height coupled with a case that is all dial make for a beautiful wearing watch. The character of the dial is endlessly interesting...it is very easy to gaze off into it randomly. A special piece for certain.
