Untouched Vintage Ivory White Dial with Gold Plated Onyx markers at the 12,3,9.
The Dial is in very nice Vintage Condition, with some very small scratches to the middle of the Dial, that are very hard to see. Hardly anything to write home about but we do like to be thorough.
You will be very hard pressed to find a better Condition Vintage Watch Dial.
This is the original Untouched 53 year old Dial that left the Longines Factory back in 68, I am a huge fan of Dials that have not been mucked about with, age related patina is par for the course in Vintage Watches of this age, embrace it!
