Longines The Longines Heritage 1968, steel
Longines' new model The Longines Heritage 1968 is available in two sizes - 26 x 26 mm and 33 x 33 mm - and in steel and in rose gold. Focus on the steel models.
Fully refurbished in 2012 to mark the brand's 180th anniversary, the Longines Museum houses many treasures including a magnificent square timepiece that was the inspiration for the Longines Heritage 1968.
The grey brushed dial features black, finely painted Roman numerals and a chapter-ring around the outside. A fine line of black varnish on the minute and hour hands echoes the lines of the numerals, providing a delicate contrast.
While the square case is at first glance more classical, the Longines Heritage 1968 reveals an interesting profile with its slightly bevelled glass that protrudes over the middle. Moreover, the trapezium-shaped date aperture contrasts with the more stringent lines of the case. The watch is fitted with a mechanical movement, L595 and the whole is mounted on an elegant black alligator strap.
Today Longines is the oldest brand still in business, unchanged, in the international registers held by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). The firm has a long tradition, characterised by the elegance of its watches.Find out more
