Longines reaffirms its watchmaking expertise with the addition of new creations that strengthen one of its flagship lines, the Longines Master Collection. Powered by a new self-winding movement developed exclusively for Longines, these timekeepers are characterized by a moon phase indicator and a refined aesthetic, creating a balance between technical excellence and classic elegance.
A symbol of Longines’ watchmaking expertise, The Longines Master Collection perfectly embodies the values of excellence and elegance that have contributed to building the brand’s reputation across the world. Since this line of models, all powered by mechanical movements, was created in 2005, it has over the years added new variations and sophisticated features that showcase the watchmaking tradition so dear to the brand.
Today, Longines introduces new models featuring a moon phase indicator at 6 o’clock circled by an Arabic numeral date ring on which a hand points to the current day. The mechanism is powered by a new movement developed exclusively for the brand – the L899 calibre.
In its eternal quest for elegance, Longines has designed a sleek dial for these new pieces combined with timeless design, thus creating a subdued and harmonious aesthetic.
Available in two sizes (40 and 42 mm in diameter), the new models of The Longines Master Collection are available in a range of different dials: black barleycorn with painted Roman numerals, silvered barleycorn with painted Arabic numerals or blue sunray with applied indexes.
The 40 mm version is also available in a version with diamond indexes for a refined result. The new models of The Longines Master Collection are offered with either a stainless steel bracelet or a black, brown or blue strap to match the different dial colours.
Based in Saint-Imier, Switzerland since 1832, Longines watchmakers enjoy an expertise steeped in tradition, elegance and performance. With generations of experience as the official timekeeper for world championships, and as a partner of international sports federations, Longines has created strong and long-lasting relationships in the world of sports over the years. Known for the elegance of its timepieces, Longines is a member of Swatch Group Ltd., the world’s leading watchmaker. The Longines brand, with its winged hourglass emblem, is established in over 150 countries.
