The watch in question is a basic time-only Longines that looks every bit the part of the 1940s timekeeper. It has a stainless steel case and an off-white dial that has aged to a rich custard color. The dial has tons of negative space, punctuated only by the sharp rose gold hour and minute hands, the applied rose gold hour markers, and the subtle crosshair marking out the small-seconds register. The watch isn't in incredible condition, but that's actually better for a watch like this – if it were too pristine there would be cause for concern about its provenance and whether or not it had been overly restored. As-is, this watch appears to be in honest, original condition. That's exactly what you want.
