PVD watches are a popular choice for those who like their wristwatch to stand out with a luxury presence. Rose gold PVD watches, white gold PVD watches and yellow gold PVD watches all create a beautiful lustre against the skin and if worn correctly, can complement any chosen attire and different types of skin tone too. Longines have been perfecting their PVD coating technology, which is achieved by plasma coating deposition. The process by vaporising materials under vacuum coating conditions is a meticulous technique which requires a great level of precision in order to achieve the immaculate finishes seen in some of the most iconic of Longines’ PVD watches.
One of the most beneficial qualities of a Longines PVD watch is that it can be worn to add a touch of sophistication to any office suite or a smart jeans and jacket combo, allowing you to attend that all-important work’s meeting or a celebratory evening meal with a memorable timepiece to record all those special moments with. PVD stands for physical vapour disposition and consists of selecting a material to coat the base metal of a watch with. These coatings applied to selected Longines watches are commonly seen as rose gold or yellow gold and are accompanied with a classic bracelet in the same matching finish.
The rich yellow gold or rosy tones of a Longines watch are unmistakable. The maison uses nearly pure gold – a total of 23.5 carat out of a possible 24 carat and this is what gives Longines watches a real look and feel of luxury on the wrist. The rose gold timepieces can be accompanied with a tasteful selection of matching rose gold pieces of jewellery, just as yellow gold PVD Longines watches can compliment items of jewellery worn every day, such as wedding bands and engagement rings in the same finish.
Take for example the Longines LA Grande Classique 36mm watch for men. The design is simple and understated but infused with a sense of luxury thanks to a perfectly polished yellow gold PVD bezel which frames a pure white dial embellished with traditional roman numerals. Although the strap is finished in a glossy black alligator imitation leather strap, the buckle is presented in a matching yellow gold finish to keep in line with those elements that create a really distinct character once donned to the wrist.
For the ladies, Longines have incorporated a number of elements which work beautifully together in the Longines Flagship 26mm watch. A striking yellow hold PVD and stainless steel bi-colour bracelet really catches the eye on first impressions of the watch. The lady can enjoy the bracelet as an item of jewellery thanks to a simple deployment clasp which makes dressing and undressing the wrist completely effortless. This Longines yellow gold PVD watch features matching yellow gold accents in the polished central minute and hour hands, together with a mesmerising 26mm bezel. The hour track is presented in dazzling diamond dots to add extra glamour to the timepiece – a feature that will be most welcomed by those ladies who enjoy a touch of sparkle whatever the occasion.
