Longines Flagship

A blend of technical mastery and subdued elegance.

The flagship is the lead ship in a fleet, upon which the chief commander’s flag snaps in the wind. Each fitted with a self-winding calibre, the models in the Flagship collection will enchant lovers of classic watches. This timeless collection launched in 1957 can still be found in the brand’s range of products in a reworked form.

The models in the Flagship collection all have a 40 mm case housing a self-winding mechanical movement, the L888 calibre (ETA A31.L01). It beats at a frequency of 25,200 vibrations per hour and has a power reserve of 64 hours. Simple but effective, the watches indicate the hours, minutes and seconds, as well as the date at 3 o'clock. Water-resistant, it is possible to go down to 30 metres with it.

The differences occur at three levels: the case, the dial and the bracelet. About the case, it can be simply made of stainless steel or stainless steel with yellow or red PVD coating.
