Longines is the brand that I wear and I certainly swear by it. Nothing compares to this timeless elegance. I take the pride to announce that in order to honor its 175 years of history, Longines has unveiled the Longines Master Collection Retrograde. Enclosing an exclusive new automatic mechanical caliber, this watch is the flagship model of a collection devoted to highlighting the horological traditions of the brand. Powered by automatic Longines caliber L698.2 made by Valgranges, this timepiece has 23 jewels, beats at 28,800 BPH, and has a power reserve of 46 hours. Functions are the hours, minutes, seconds, and power reserve indication. You can opt for a 44mm or a 41mm case that is done in stainless steel with double sapphire crystals. The silver-finished dial is stamped in a “barleycorn” pattern, with 11 Arabic numerals and a black printed minute track scale. It has 7 blued steel hands.
A second model is available with retrograde seconds instead of power reserve indication at 6 o’clock. The 3 retrograde functions are day, date and second time zone on a 24-hour scale. Strap it on your wrist with a stainless steel bracelet or a black or dark brown alligator strap with folding clasp.
