1930s Longines "Two-Tone Sector" Tre-Tacche Retailed by B.Bernasconi-Milano
|Year of Manufacture||1930s|
Longines, "Tre-Tacche", two-tone sector dial, water-resistant 3omm in diameter, stainless steel, water-resistant, retailed by B. Bernasconi-Milano, circa 1930s. The step design and three-point screw-back watertight case, from which the name "Trettacche" originates, is a massive piece of work by Longines. The two-tone sector dial, with its period-appropriate design, is a wonderful example of the era and its great taste. This is a valuable co-branded watch model signed with the Italian shop in Milan "B.BERNASCONI-MILANO" which was founded in 1872.
