I have long been a fan of Longines watches. They are exquisitely made and stylish timepieces. Longines watches are priced affordably. Swiss watches for the common buyer, however, being cheap doesn’t mean you have to give up quality.
Longines have been making quality watches ever since. In 1912 Longines established themselves in the world of sports by introducing the concept of an electrical wire that at the beginning and end of a competition, activated and stopped a timing mechanism. This innovative approach to timekeeping made by Longines has ensured that Longines have been appointed official timekeepers at numerous of the world’s most famous sporting events. Longines sports watches reflect the rich history of sports. However, Longines also make many elegant watches that are suitable for both men and women. I believe Longines watches for women are stunning. The latest selection of Longines watches reflects this.
The DolceVita collection from Longines is elegant and simple in its design. The dial is rectangular and has simple hour markers. The DolceVita dial comes in white, black, or pink mother of pearl. The case is stainless steel, however you can purchase a gold case that is set with 32 Top Wesselton diamonds (0.32 carat) – this comes with an accompanying gold bracelet. Stainless longines steel versions can also be purchased with diamonds inlaid and come with stainless steel bracelets or a white or black leather lacquered straps. There are a few versions have a black or white lacquered leather strap. Longines DolceVita can be worn by men, but it’s as a classy ladies watch which the Longines DolceVita truly comes into its own.
Longines say that their Evidenza recalls the 1920s. I believe there’s a basis for this claim as the case appears to be outdated, but it’s certainly not out of date. The tonneau-shaped case goes back to an earlier Longines model from 1911, with the tonneau design is an oval with flattened ends. This Longines Evidenza is suitable for both ladies and gentlemen. The casing is made of stainless steel however there is a ladies gold version with 44, 0.22 carats, diamonds. This Longines Evidenza comes with either self-winding, quartz or quartz movements. My favorite Evidenza is one that is housed in the stainless steel case, with a leather straps in dark brown that are enhanced by 12 blue painted Arabic numerals. This model also comes with a moon-phase display with a 31-day calendar at 6 o’clock, as well as each day of the week as well as monthly apertures that are at 12 hours – it’s a beautiful watch.
The Longines BelleArti is a truly elegant ladies watch. I’m fortunate to be able buy my wife a BelleArti Longines watch on her birthday. The watches in the BelleArti range are simple and understated, evoking memories of their Art Deco movement of the 1920s. The dial comes in silver, black or mother-of-pearl. All dials have 11 Arabic figures with a second subdial that is located at 6 o’clock, and “Cathedral” dials. Certain models come with diamonds that are inlaid – but my wife’s model is not equipped with. The case on the Longines BelleArti is rectangular with visible curvature on its sides, which gives the whole watch a very feminie feel.
La Grande Classique de Longines style draws inspiration from the earlier design traditions of Longines. The casing is a simple ring and comes in either gold or stainless steel – certain models have diamonds inlaid. Like you would expect, for this classical style of watch, the face is available in white, black, and mother of pearl. The Logines Grande Classicique is definitely for those of those who prefer a more traditional watch.
The Longines LungoMare is designed for those who prefer a contemporary looking watch. There is a ladies verion the watch. The casing is round and is only available in stainless steel. The LungoMare comes with water resitant for up to 100m. I really enjoy the LungoMare. It’s pure understated style. It is free of stylistic tricks, like big crowns, big hands and a congested facia. This watch competes with brands such as Breitling, Tag Heuer and Rolex however priced at a more realistic price for consumers.
Longines also manufacture also the Lingbergh watch. It is a tribute to that first trip across the Atlantic by Charles Lindbergh. Personally, I’m not fond of these watches. I’m certainly not a fan of the design of this watch either.
The Longines Master collection is for those who want the most performance from their watch. The majority of the watches include complications, self-winding mechanical movements beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour with a rated power reserve for 42 hours. A lot of them also have the ability to chronograph. I think it’s a good idea to purchase the Longines Master collection is for people who want to get the best of the offerings Longines offers.
All longines watches come with sapphire glass as well as top-quality movements. Also, Longines provide a wide range of styles to pick from, unlike other swiss watchmakers. I enjoy Longines timepieces: Longines allow you to own a quality Swiss price accessible to consumers on a budget
