What is the design on the dust cover of the watch?
Longines, Omega and other Universal Exhibitions Medals Universal Exhibitions were World's fairs originating in the French tradition of national exhibitions, a tradition that culminated with the French Industrial Exposition of 1844 held in Paris. This fair was soon followed by other national exhibitions in continental Europe, and eventually the United Kingdom. Many of the dust covers on the Longines Pocket Watches from the 1900s exhibit the Universal Exhibitions Awards Medals. Longines won a record of ten Grand Prix and 28 Gold Medals, more than any other watch manufacturer! These include 1885 Grand Prix in Antqerp; 1897 in Brussels; 1889, 1900 & 1925 in Paris; 1906 in Milan; 1914 in Genoa; 1914 in Philadelphia; and 1926 & 1929 in Barcelona. Though Longines and Omega dominated the Medals, there were others that were awarded with the Universal Exhibition Medals.
