The winged-hourglass brand is forever adding attractive references to its catalog. It’s the Heritage Classic’s turn this time round with a model that displays the moon’s phases.


Through its Flagship Heritage model, Longines reminds us that its mantra Elegance is an attitude is not just a mere advertising slogan. Basically, every detail of this timepiece has a role to play in its seductiveness. The design of its satin-brushed-finished steel case as such place the accent on versatility with a diameter of just 38.5 mm. Its dial, available in silver or in sunburst blue, conjures up the past, whilst its hour chapter comprising eleven markers, its dauphine-style hands and the presence of a Moon phase display underscore a kind of esthetically-beautiful timelessness. The pared-down scenography enhances the elegant personality of this piece even more. On the caseback, the engraving of an exquisite sailing vessel reminds us that the Flagship Heritage is definitely one of the brand’s jewels. And, to ensure perfect harmony, this new reference is complemented by a gray, brown or blue strap, depending on the variation chosen.

The L899 (ETA A31.L91), one of the most efficient contemporary calibers, which equips, among others, The Longines 1832 watch, nestles inside the case. This selfwinding movement, beating at a frequency of 25,200 vibrations an hour, boasts a silicon monocrystal balance spring which means it’s insensitive to the negative effects of magnetic fields. What’s more, this cutting-edge device amazes with its autonomy. It delivers a wonderful power reserve of three days to the watch. Elegance to be delighted in throughout the week, and over the weekend too.
