Longines DolceVita ladies’ stainless steel diamond-set watch
The interesting placement of the diamonds on the face of this Longines DolceVita ladies’ stainless steel diamond-set watch make it a really unique piece. This stylish piece from Longines’ DolceVitaa collection blends the styles of two eras to create a fascinating looking timepiece. Neat lines of the 1930s are mixed with the more glamourous lines of the 1950s to make a watch that effectively expresses the Italian spirit and joy for life. Both the bracelet and case material are made out of polished stainless steel. The white mother of pearl face is dotted with ten sparkling diamonds in its rectangular face. Longines has been making watches since 1832. Watches designed by this company are made in a unique combination of precision and elegance using Swiss watchmaking techniques mastered over many years. Longines is credited with making the first watch using the principle of an electric wire. This happened in 1912. The wire activated and stopped the timing mechanism in a watch that showed the start and finish of a race. Longines watches have also been associated with the history of aviation and navigation. The company worked with Lindbergh for his first solo flight across the Atlantic Ocean.
