Longines has succeeded for the first time in bringing together the day, the night and the phases of the moon in a symphony  of retrograde hands with a new timepiece that is named the Longines Master Collection Retrograde Moon Phases. The Longines Master Collection Retrograde is a combination of the brand's technical heritage and its unmistaken aesthetical quality. It is a line that uses a calibre that was specially developed for Longines. With its various retrograde functions this line has rapidly become the figurehead of The Longines Master Collection, which is a tribute to the brand's long watchmaking tradition. The exclusive movement has now been set in a case whose lines are even more refined and elegant.

The Longines Master Collection Retrograde Moon Phases

Thanks to a new exclusive movement, Longines has been successful in creating a watchmaking combination that has never been seen before. The day, the night and the phases of the moon have been brought together in a symphony of retrograde hands in a new timepiece named The Longines Master Collection Retrograde Moon Phases. This exceptional watch reveals the intricate symphony of four retrograde hands whose elegant movements are governed by the phases of the moon, the rhythms of day and night. In addition to displaying the hour, day, night and the phases of the moon, the functions of the Longines Master Collection Retrograde Moon Phases models include the day of the week at 12 o'clock, the date on the right-hand side of the dial, a 24-hour second time-zone on the left-hand side of the dial and a small seconds at 6 o'clock. These four functions are retrograde, in other words, the hands that display this information return immediately to their former position once they have completed their cycle. The elegant and harmonious movement of the six hands under the eye of the moon make this new creation totally captivating.

The Longines Master Collection Retrograde Moon Phases is available with a diameter of 41 mm or 44 mm. This striking timepiece will be available with a black dial and a black leather strap – to suit the phases of the moon, or attired for the day with a contrasting silvered dial, deep blue for the phases of the moon and a brown alligator strap.

Offering retrograde functions (day, date, seconds, 24-hour second time-zone) and a self-winding movement, the Longines Master Collection Retrograde is the embodiment of cutting-edge mechanical horology and is easy to use. Today Longines has set this exclusive movement in a new, even sleeker case. The Longines Master Collection Retrograde also exists with a power reserve and three retrograde functions (day, date, 24-hour second time-zone).

With a diameter of 41 mm or 44 mm, the case of these timepieces enhances the elegant movement of the hands and also has discreet correctors for the retrograde functions, enabling the wearer to return the hands instantly to a given position if desired.
