Since its early days, the traditional Swiss watch manufacturer Longines has accustomed the world to matchless horological products. The Longines Master Collection is yet another example of this outstanding craftsmanship. The success of this collection since its launch in 2005 has encouraged Longines to add new models: rose gold, yellow gold, black dials, new sizes, retrograde functions, and not forgetting an entrancing Moon phases ladies’ model. This model in The Longines Master Collection is a dream come true as far as perfect harmony between feminine beauty and watchmaking expertise is concerned.
From generation to generation, the collections signed Longines have regularly appeared just at the right moment to charm some admirers, thanks to their subtle design, and convince others, thanks to their unusual technical features … which is only to be expected from a manufacturer with a history that goes back over three centuries during which it has never ceased to demonstrate its know-how. This is all too clearly the case with The Longines Master Collection. Comprising only mechanical watches, it is the issue of a long tradition that goes back to the brand’s earliest years.
Who said that women could not be seduced by the charm of a mechanical watch! The Longines Master Collection Moon phases ladies’ model is guaranteed to raise the pulse of those women who appreciate the real value of watchmaking know-how but who do not want to forego feminine elegance. Thanks to these sophisticated and beautifully coloured models, their dream has come true!
The Moon phases ladies’ model in The Longines Master Collection boasts a selection of tantalising colours: a rich dark brown, a shimmering white of timeless elegance and a truly feminine rose. This model will decorate the wrists of women who admire watchmaking craftsmanship on an alligator strap that subtly matches the colour of the dial or a steel bracelet. The round steel case, set with 100 Top Wesselton VVS diamonds (0.90 carat), encloses a dial featuring Arabic numerals or elegant diamond hour symbols.
The dial, made out of shimmering mother of pearl, enhances the luminous intensity of the piece. The heart of the watch, an L600 calibre, is a self-winding mechanical movement that beats at 28,800 vibrations per hour and has a power reserve of 42 hours. It assures the Moon phases function and the date at 6 o’clock as well as a double display for the day of the week and the month at 12 o’clock. The transparent case back reveals the scintillating pulse of the piece.
The various models in The Longines Master Collection offer a choice of a stainless steel or an 18-carat yellow or rose gold case with a transparent back. They are fitted on a bracelet to match the case, be it in stainless steel or 18-carat yellow or rose gold. Alternatively, there is a genuine leather brown strap with a folding safety clasp for the comfort of the wearer.
