A stunning vintage Longines Flagship Automatic 3418 "Big Ship", hailing from circa 1959, cased in a 35mm 9k yellow gold case.

We've fallen in love with the Longines Flagship. Originally launched in 1957 (along with the Conquest line), the Flagship ushered in a more modern approach of using model lines to market watches.

The Flagship is a quintessential dress watch, with its timeless dial and case design and reliable automatic movement. This particular Longines Flagship reference 3418 is powered by the 17 jewel calibre 345 automatic movement. The case-back features an impressive motif of the Flagship to which the model gets its name.


- Dial: Excellent condition with only minor spotting;

- Case: Good. Some scratches as expected for a watch of this age but overall in good condition. The Flagship motif on the case back remains sharp;

- Glass: Good condition with only minor scratches;

- Movement: Excellent clean condition and fully serviced;

- Strap: New third party leather strap

- Box and Papers: Our Own

Possibly our new favourite sub £2,000 vintage gold watch.

With prices of vintage Longines Flagships continuing to rise, now is the perfect time to secure this wonderful example priced almost £1,000 less than what you would expect to pay in traditional London dealers!
