There are good watches, there are great watches, and then there are watches that make you fall in love with the art of watchmaking itself. Longines is one such brand that has done this over the years it has been in the industry. The Swiss horologist is a perfect example of what a game-changing enterprise looks like. Maybe the venture is not as big as others such as Rolex or Omega today, but it has surely left an unforgettable impression on the Haute Horlogerie industry. The fact of the matter is that Longines watches are magnificent machines that are worthy of every penny spent on them.
Check out these watch models from the horologist. You will clearly understand why they are the best at what they do.
Longines Skin Diver Watch Ref. L2.818.104.22.168
The Longines watch is a tad bit eccentric in the way that it is not what Longines watches usually look like. With a water resistance of about 300 meters, it clearly presents as a divers' watch and offers all the functionalities that come along with it. Other features that separate the timepiece are the 42mm case, unidirectional bezel, and sapphire crystal. The watch also utilises the much-talked-about automatic calibre L888.
Longines Masters Ref. L2.722.214.171.124
The Longines Master Collection is as it is a legendary series with probably the best references the brand has to offer. The collection is clad with all the features a modern watch enthusiast would look for. It also has some of the most advanced complications ever seen in the industry. We have the classic chronographs and small seconds, while we also see the much more advanced moon phases and perpetual calendars.
Longines Presence Heritage Ref. L4.7126.96.36.199
One might try and connect it to the Longines Heritage but that wouldn’t be right. The watch is a rendition of a design from the glory days of the brand. The timepiece carries itself with grace and elegance. The tan-brown leather strap is definitely a winner while the Breguet hands are a nice touch. As classy looking as the watch is, it is also a fine mechanical marvel. The watch does not have a seconds' hand and instead consists of a small seconds' display.
Longines is a great watchmaker and is probably going to be remembered for the rest of the civilised humanity. The brand has worked really hard in securing this position and that clearly reflects on all of its watches. Today, there are tons of watches that the brand has to offer and the above-mentioned timepieces are merely a glimpse of the whole deal.
