Long live Longines! That’s what you are bound to say; one peek at the Longines Admiral Chronograph and you are floored. The case, in stainless steel, measures 42mm and has an AR-coated sapphire crystal. It beats its competitors by being water resistant to 100 meters while some of the real cool and expensive ones can only go down to 30 meters. Movement is the automatic Longines calibre L705 (base Valgranges A07.231) with 27 jewels and a power reserve of 46 hours and that is good.
Dials can be had in black, chocolate or silver. I would go for the silver dial with closed eyes. It may also interest you to know that the dial comes with a “big 12” applied superluminova luminescent Arabic numeral and eight applied superluminova luminescent polished rhodium-plated indices. I am totally longing for Longines!
