I have long been a lover of Longines watches. Longines watches are made with care and are elegant timepieces. Longines watches are priced affordably. Swiss watches for the common consumer, but being affordable doesn’t mean that you need to forgo quality.
Longines has been manufacturing high-quality timepieces since the year 1832. In 1912, Longines made history in world of sport by introducing the idea of an electric wire, that at the beginning and the end of a race, triggered and stopped a timer mechanism. This breakthrough in timekeeping from Longines has made sure that Longines were appointed official timekeepers for many of the major sporting events around the world. Longines sports watches are a reflection of this sporting history. However, Longines also make many elegant watches that are suitable for both men and women. I feel Longines watches specifically designed for women are beautiful. The latest selection of Longines watches reflects this.
The DolceVita collection from Longines is elegant and simple in its design. The dial is rectangular and longines has easy hour markers. The DolceVita dial is available in black, white and pink Mother of Pearl. The case is stainless steel, however it is possible to purchase a gold case that has 32 Top Wesselton diamonds (0.32 carat) that come with an accompanying gold bracelet. Stainless steel versions can also be bought with inlaid diamonds and come with stainless steel bracelets or white and black lacquered straps. Some versions that are part of the Longines DolceVita can be worn by males, however it is as an elegant women’s timepiece which the Longines DolceVita truly comes into its own.
Longines assert that Evidenza is invocative of the 1920s. I think there’s some argument to this since the design of the watch appears to be vintage, but it’s not out-of-date. The tonneau-shaped case dates back to an earlier Longines model made in 1911; the tonneau shape being an oval with flattened ends. It is the Longines Evidenza is suitable for both women and men. The casing is made of stainless steel although there is a ladies gold version, set with 44 0.22 carat, diamonds. This Longines Evidenza comes with either self-winding or quartz movements. My personal favorite Evidenza is the one that comes in a stainless steel case with dark brown alligator strap, with 12 blue-painted Arabic numerals. This model also features the moon phase display, which includes an 31-day calendar that is displayed at 6 o’clock, as well as each day of the week as well as monthly apertures that are at 12 hours. a very nice watch.
The Longines BelleArti is a truly elegant watch for ladies. I’m lucky enough to be able to buy my wife a Longines watch to celebrate her birthday. The BelleArti range is elegant and elegant, conjuring memories that are reminiscent of the Art Deco movement of the 1920s. The dial comes in black, silver or mother-of-pearl. All dials have 11 Arabic figures as well as a second subdial at 6 o’clock and “Cathedral” hands. Some models are available with diamonds that are inlaid – but my wife’s watch is without. The casing that is the case of Longines BelleArti is rectangular , with an incline of sight on the sides. This gives the entire watch a feminine feel.
La Grande Classique de Longines style is akin to the previous design styles of Longines. The case is a simple circular and comes in gold or stainless steel – some models feature inlaid diamonds. As you might expect, the classic design of this watch, the face is available in white, black, or Mother of Pearl. The Logines Grande Classique is for those who of prefer the look of a more traditional watch.
The Longines LongoMare is designed for people who want a more modern look watch. There’s a ladies edition the watch. The casing is round and comes only in stainless steel. The LungoMare has water resitant for up to 100m. I really enjoy the LungoMare. It’s pure understated style. It doesn’t use stylistic gimmicks like large crowns, large hands, and a cluttered face. This watch rivals such makes as Breitling, Tag Heuer and Rolex but is priced at a reasonable price for customers.
Longines also manufacture also the Lingbergh watch. It commemorates one of the first flights across the Atlantic by Charles Lindbergh. Personally, I’m not a fan of commemorative watches , and I’m not a huge fan of the style of this particular watch.
The Longines Master collection appeals to those who want the most performance from their watch. The majority of watches in this collection come with complications, self-winding mechanical movement that can achieve 28,800 vibrations per hour, with a power reserve at 42 hours. Some also have the ability to chronograph. I believe that the Longines Master collection is for those who seek the very best from what Longines has to offer.
All Longines watches have sapphire glass as well as top-quality movements. And Longines have a variety of designs to choose from in contrast to other Swiss watchmakers. I love Longines watch models. Longines provide a quality Swiss price accessible to the average person.
