A beautiful example of the Longines Flagship Automatic reference 3418, from 1966. With an outstanding calibre 345 automatic movement, a stunning minimalist dial and 35mm 9k gold case, this gorgeous vintage Longines Flagship ticks all the boxes for a vintage gold dress watch!

Longines introduced the Flagship line in 1957, which, together with the Conquest line, marked the beginning of the company's present method of promoting timepieces under separate model lines. Many have dubbed the Flagship the ultimate dress watch of the 1950s due to its magnificent appearance. In 2017, Longines released a 60th Anniversary re-edition (called Heritage) model to commemorate the original. However, we prefer the original!

Technical & Condition: 

Presented in excellent condition throughout. The dial is close to mint with the lume plots having taken on a wonderful subdued yellow which matches that on the hands. The case remains sharp and largely free from marks with the famous Big Ship on the case back clear to see. The appearance of the crown is quite aged but functioning well. The movement is clean and fully serviced. Finally, the watch is fitted with a new, 3rd party strap. 

  • Case size (exc. crown): 35mm
  • Case material: 9k Gold
  • Movement: Automatic calibre 345
  • Strap/bracelet: 3rd-party leather strap
  • Box and papers: Our own

Make this Longines Flagship yours today!

We believe this is close to the perfect vintage gold dress watch, and we're sure you will too! Demand for Big Ship examples of the Flagship is on the rise and prices are only going one way! You'd already expect to pay around £2.5k for this from traditional dealers so don't delay, with the market moving as it is, next time we get one in you can be assured it won't be this price.
