I’ve been a long-time lover of Longines watches. They are exquisitely made and elegant timepieces. Longines watches are priced affordably. Swiss watches that are affordable for the average consumer, however being inexpensive does not mean you must sacrifice quality.
Longines has been producing high-quality timepieces since the year 1832. In 1912, Longines created history in the world of sports when they introduced the idea of an electric wire that at the beginning and end of a race, triggered and shut down a timing mechanism. This breakthrough in timekeeping from Longines has made sure that Longines have been chosen as official timekeepers for many of the most prestigious sporting events in the world. Longines sports watches are a reflection of the history of sports. However, Longines also makes beautiful watches for men as well as women. I believe Longines watches for women are particularly beautiful. The latest collection of Longines watches reflect this.
The DolceVita collection from Longines is elegant and simple in its design. The dial is rectangular and has basic hour markers. The DolceVita dial is available in white, black and pink Mother of Pearl. The case is made of stainless steel, however you can purchase a gold case with 32 Top Wesselton diamonds (0.32 carat) and a the gold bracelet that matches. Thelongines stainless steel models can be purchased with diamonds inlaid and are available with stainless steel bracelets or a white and black lacquered straps. Certain versions are also available. Longines DolceVita can be worn by males, however it’s as a classy women’s timepiece which the Longines DolceVita truly comes into its own.
Longines say that their Evidenza is a reminiscence of the 1920s. There is a reason for this, as the case appears to be vintage, but it’s not outdated. The tonneau-shaped case dates back to an earlier Longines model that was made in 1911, with the tonneau design is an oval with flattened edges. It is the Longines Evidenza is suitable for both women and men. The casing is made of stainless steel however there is a ladies gold version with 44, 0.22 carats, diamonds. It is a Longines Evidenza comes with either self-winding or quartz movement. My favorite Evidenza is the one with stainless steel case and the dark brown alligator strap with 12 blue-painted Arabic numerals. The model also has an moon-phase display that includes 31 days of the calendar at 6 o’clock, as well as days of the week and months apertures on 12 o’clock. an excellent watch.
The Longines BelleArti is a truly elegant watch for ladies. I’m fortunate to be able to purchase my wife a watch from Longines BelleArti to celebrate her birthday. The watches in the BelleArti collection is simple and elegant, conjuring memories from those who wore the Art Deco movement of the 1920s. The dial is available in silver, black or mother-of-pearl. The dials all feature 11 Arabic figures and a second subdial located at 6 o’clock, and “Cathedral” hand-shaped hands. Certain models come with inlaid diamonds , but my wife’s watch does not have. The case on the Longines BelleArti is rectangular , with an incline of sight on the sides, giving the entire watch a feminine feel.
La Grande Classique de Longines style is akin to the design tradition of earlier Longines. The case is a simple circular and is available in gold or stainless steel – certain models are adorned with diamonds inlaid. Like you would expect, for this classic style of watch, the faces are available in white, black and mother of pearl. The Logines Grande Classique is for those who or prefers the appearance of an older-style watch.
The Longines LungoMare is designed for those who prefer a more contemporary looking watch. There is a ladies version that is available. The case is round and is only available in stainless steel. It is a great choice for scuba diving. LungoMare can also be water resistant up to 100 metres. I love the LungoMare. It’s a simple, understated design. It is free of stylistic tricks, like big crowns, large hands, and a cluttered face. It is a competitor to brands such like Breitling, Tag Heuer and Rolex however priced at a price that is more affordable for the average consumer.
Longines also manufacture watch known as the Lingbergh watch. It is a tribute to 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 fan of this design of this one either.
The Longines Master collection is a favorite among those who seek the maximum performance from their watch. The majority of watches in this collection have complications, self-winding mechanical movements that beat at 28,800 rpm, with a power reserve that is 42 hours. Some also have the ability to chronograph. I believe that this Longines Master collection is for those who are looking for the most of the offerings Longines offers.
All Longines watches feature sapphire glass and superior movements. Additionally, Longines provide a wide range of styles to pick from unlike other Swiss watchmakers. I love Longines models: Longines allow you to own a high-quality Swiss accessible to consumers of all ages.
