Inspired by the equestrian world and their strong links to the Grand Prix, Longines watches tell a story of the brand’s prestigious history and their journey to ultimate success. Shapes and materials define many of the symbolic designs found in Longines watches, echoing values that Longines have always considered paramount to their watchmaking, such as performance, style, precision and elegance.
Longines watches are created from the brand’s traditional genetic makeup, yet promise stylish offerings. They meet the criteria related to quality, legibility and reliability. The dial of each Longines watch is a charming expression of the passage of time –each one with its own story behind its birth. Since Longines was founded in the year of 1832, there have been many generations that have followed from the first few original timepieces. Surprisingly, Longines have chosen to change very little about their approach to making a dedicated wristwatch, seen as their design ethos from the very beginning, was to keep the watches simple, functional and readable.
Longines watches can be worn for all manner of occasions. The gentleman timepieces from collections such as the Longines Heritage or the HydroConquest collection, are poignant but particularly bold – allowing the man to wear his wristwatch with pride and confidence, regardless of attire, situation or requirement. Watches from the Longines Conquest collection are both classic and elegant. The wristwatches can be worn underneath the sleeve of an office suit or combined with evening jewellery to create a sophisticated finish to any outfit. Members of the Longines Elegant range are exactly what they promise in their title. Classic designs with elegant features – perfect for celebrating those special milestones with - great for sentimental birthday and Christmas gifts.
The Longines Flagship collection consists of a variety of different dial colours. From a sleek black, to a captivating deep silky blue, or a classic white dial with a gold PVD bezel and matching bi-colour link bracelet with foldable clasps. Similar to the simplicity found in these dials, the Longines La Grande Classique range delivers clarity and beauty in the same way, but with an extra special finish. Gold PVD bezels, classic stainless steel bracelets and traditional black and white dials make up this range. Time is particularly easy to reference on these dials with a simple clear layouts and crisp traditional Roman numeral hour markers. Some lady’s models from the Longines La Grande Classique range are represented in diamond dot variations, to provide the wearer with an added layer of luxury.
