Longines Watches Review
As one the world’s most loved brands, Longines watches have always been a favourite here at The Watch Gallery – and with good reason.
A Longines watches review can unearth some hidden (and welcome) surprises beneath all the clockwork and the devil really is in the detail. Based in Saint-Imier, Swizterland, Longines was first founded by Auguste Agassiz, just one individual belonging to a prestigious family that birthed scientists, merchants and of course, watchmakers. Success was always a given.
Now owned by the Swatch Group, Longines became known for aviation watches that charmed famed pilot Charles Lindbergh so much that he even designed a brand new timepiece to his specifications – a timepiece that is still produced to this day. One can expect nothing but expert craftsmanship and a commitment to functional luxury that can be accessed by all.
As an iconic men’s watch, this stainless steel model belongs to the Elegant family as one of Longines hero timepieces. A diameter of 37mm is sizeable without making an overt statement whilst a refined white dial, date aperture and Roman numeral markers all contribute to an exceptional watch.
Perfect For: A gent that requires a timepiece that can adapt to both casual and formal attire.
The Longines Heritage focuses on all things classic with a luxury leather strap and gold arrow markers. 35mm in diameter makes for a very subtle choice complete with water resistance function to 30m, scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass and a stainless steel case.
Perfect For: An event that requires a dress watch (plus, it won’t break the bank).
Set within a masculine polished steel case, the Longines Conquest Classic combines a sport aesthetic with fine Swiss craftsmanship. The dial displays hours, minutes, small second at 9 o’clock and the date at 4.30.
Perfect For: A gent that needs statement and style.
The ultimate in dress watches, the Longines Presence in rose gold is a truly timeless decision. A simple yet classic white dial is reinforced with a date aperture, Roman numerals and the instantly identifiable Longines logo. Complete with transparent caseback to see every inch of the inner craftsmanship.
Perfect For: Providing that extra special gift.
