Detailed description

This beautiful advertising watch display, lit from the inside, by the Swiss watchmaking company Longines presents itself in the form of a precious pocket watch. The design of the lithographed dial, with blue lettering, Arabic numerals, Cathédral hands and small second, reminds of a classic pocket watch with stainless steel casing and enameled dial, just like one that the real watch admirer can acquire in the stores of the luxurious Swiss watch manufacturer. If the plug is connected, the dial lights up and the clockwork pictured on the inside becomes visible. What watch admirer could resist such playful advertising?
The watch advertising display displays clear signs of age and wear and the material is corroded in several places, inside as well as outside. The hinge mechanism is located behind the winding movement. The inside is slightly soiled and contains the appliance for the light bulb. The age-related traces, however, do not impair the visual effect of the advertising watch display, as the dial and textile cable in particular have a very appealing retro appearance and a beautiful patina. The watch is 33 cm long, 25 cm wide and has a depth of 9.5 cm. It is fully functional. The cable has a length of 2.1 m.
