For a long time Longines has always been a pioneer in the dress watch department. Ranging from their Presence, DolceVita and Flagship lines there's a lot to love about a classic dress Longines.

For your consideration today is a Longines Tank reference TY1601 from 1976. This is elegance at its finest. At 26mm it will fit a variety of wrist sizes be it male or female. Razor thin in design allows for this watch to slide under any finely tailored shirt cuff on a special evening. Complimented by a date function at 3 o'clock and art deco style hour markers at 12, 6 & 9 o'clock you will appreciate the design quality of this piece. Finally a scripted "Quartz" logo sits above the 6 o'clock position and a newly installed battery powers the movement underneath.

Personal Comments: 
An impressive vintage Longines goes a long way. Subtle, understated and exquisite when on wrist. I personally prefer this more than a Cartier Tank due to the hour markers and no minute tracking across the dial. A true cocktail party watch for a simpler time.
