Launched in 1992, La Grande Classique de Longines has played a major role in forging the reputation of the winged hourglass brand. This range is a symbol of Longines’ classic elegance and timeless sophistication, and stands out thanks to its very slim profile and wide palette of versions. Designed for both women and men, this iconic collection can be seen on the wrists of all those who know how to appreciate true value.
La Grande Classique de Longines was first introduced in 1992 and has since enjoyed immediate and long-lasting success. Its classic spirit and timeless style have very quickly made this collection an unfailing pillar of the winged hourglass brand. Today, it is offered in a wide range of versions and is designed for women and men who will always turn to sure, authentic value.
The collection has expanded over the years, but has never forgotten its original features, especially its very slim profile that comes from the unique construction of its case, whose back also serves as the bracelet’s lugs. That technique has been patented by Longines.
Cased in steel, sometimes set with diamonds, or made out of yellow or pink PVD, this collection’s models come in six different sizes (Ø 24, 29, 33, 36, 37 and 38 mm) to suit every wrist and style sensibility. The dial too offers an array of options: white mother-of-pearl, black, blue, brown, silver, or gold; with sunray or even lacquer or flinqué; decorated with Roman numerals, diamonds, or painted indices… In its own way, each face magnifies these elegant features created to mark life’s most beautiful moments.
To complete the classic aesthetic of this timepiece, a white, black or blue leather strap adds a finishing touch to the elegance of the case. Steel, yellow or pink PVD, or a combination of steel and PVD bracelets hug the curve of the wrist perfectly thanks to their supple, fine links. Quartz or automatic movements drive this range’s models.
As an emblematic collection of the winged hourglass brand, La Grande Classique de Longines bears witness to the long-standing expertise with which the watchmaking company embodies elegance today.
