Longines Heritage 1942 Chronograph commemorates the brand’s 180th anniversary


Watch making is similar to aging wine in many ways, the older the brand, more vintage the models, and the newer models are all the more revolutionary as well. So when Longines turned 180 years old, they have decided to celebrate the milestone with a special anniversary model called Longines Heritage 1942 Chronograph. This new offering is a bit more masculine than the one paying tribute to founder Auguste Agassiz. Set in a 40mm stainless steel case, covered with an AR-coated sapphire crystal and a sapphire display back, the stunning watch sports a tachymetric scale on its bezel.

Boasting of the Swiss automatic Longines L688.2 movement, the watch offers 30-metre water resistance, and a 54-hour power reserve. Available in white or black dials with Arabic numerals it sports hands hued in blue steel or plated with rhodiaum. The watch has been finished with a black alligator strap and a steel buckle.
