Longines Longines Heritage Classic: Immersion in the 1930s

Longines revisits a model typical of the 1930s to bring forth The Longines Heritage Classic.

With a streamlined design, this new creation perfectly respects the 1930s spirit of the piece that inspired it. In particular, it reflects the aesthetic of its sector dial in a subtle balance of colours and lines. A silvered opaline disk – with a glow that emphasises the fine blued steel hands – stands out at its centre.

The hour circle, adorned with Arabic numerals and hour markers, appears on a satin-finished silvered disk. A fine edge, also in silvered opaline, surrounds the hours. Another significant detail of the dial is the small seconds counter in striated silvered opaline, characterised by its size and remarkable position: a wished faithfulness to the original model.

In this spirit, The Longines Heritage Classic is driven by a new, exclusive calibre (L893.5), featuring a silicon balance spring. This self-winding mechanical movement, especially developed for the pieces of the Heritage line, does not carry the date and enables the small seconds display to be located under the central axis for a design that is even closer to that of the historical pieces. The watch is also distinctive for the diameter of its stainless steel case: 38.50 mm, a contemporary dimension that reflects the elegant pieces of the 1930s.

To perfect this exceptional model, a blue or semi-matte black leather strap with beige overstitching adorns the case. These two variations are respectively completed by a denim-effect leather NATO strap of an anthracite or blue colour. A tool provided with each model makes it possible to easily inter change them on a whim.

With The Longines Heritage Classic, the winged hourglass brand once again illustrates its ability to honour its past and to add a new timepiece to the Heritage line that will thrill Longines lovers.

To mark the launch of The Longines Heritage Classic, Longines has teamed up with three collectors. One of them is Chris Beccan (cf. video), watch collector and journalist who writes about all vintage watches.
