LONGINES – HERITAGE 1969
Introducing the Longines Heritage 1969
The Heritage collection plucks vintage models from the brand’s archives, some of which are currently at the Longines Museum in Saint-Imier. One of them is the new Heritage 1969 inspired by a model from the late 1960s whose design oozes 70s style with its square shape and smooth lines.
Its shiny cushion-shape steel case has curvy lugs and measures 36x36mm. The self-winding L888.2 movement brings to life the time and date functions alongside the 64-hour power reserve.
The brushed silver dial has an hour rim with a slim black minute track and rose gold “applied” markers. The warm gold also coats the baton-shape hour, minute and seconds hands in the centre whilst a black-on-white date display lies at 4.30.
Price: 1900 CHF
