LONGINES SEI TACCHE 33MM CALIBER 10L STAINLESS STEEL CENTER SECONDS Ref 23089Longines
Please refer to photographs for the most accurate presentation of condition
For auction is a Longines Sei Tacche ref. 23089 stainless steel caliber 10L waterproof case with a heavy patina dial. Longings was SUCH a good maker…everything they made was essentially good….for me personally they are in my top 3 because of it. This simple Sei Tacche (six cut outs on the caseback for opening the case) with a stepped bezel is a quality piece through and through. It offers up a great case, a great movement and a unique look with the patina dial. These have recently had a spotlight shown on them: I say great. They give such quality for money and in many regards blow away modern watches, not to mention a regular person can buy one without breaking the bank. I love vintage Longines for that reason, and it is a reason to love this watch.
