Lemon Calatrava: 1951 Important Longines, Tropical
Longines Tropical Calatrava between Dress- & Sportswatch, Horological Lungfish
- Time (Hour, Minute, Small Second)
WHY WE LOVE IT: Because of its patinae: tropical! And because it is moved by the cal22A -- Longines 1st ever automatic caliber -- and connects the dresswatch to the steel-sportswatch. An important watch; an important Longines.
Craft & Tailored explained in great words why this could be considered the horological lungfish that bridges the realm of dresswatches to steel-sportswatches -- indeed.
The important cal22A was serviced right now and runs excellent and precise. We connected the Longines-buckle by a dark-blue strap to the amazingly preserved case.
