Longines’ Admiral line recalls the prestigious dimension of sports where beauty, precision and elegance are of the utmost importance. It boasts an air of self-confidence that will be appreciated especially by globetrotters as well as people with an adventurous streak.
Three new creations have been added to the Longines Admiral collection. Firstly, a model with a 24-hour graduation scale and a second time-zone, which has a ceramic bezel in black or grey. The robust and yet elegant steel case houses a self-winding mechanical movement, while the sapphire glass protects a black or grey dial with a predominant “12” – the design symbol of Longines’ sport collections.
The bright red 24-hour hand immediately attracts the eye and contrasts with the moon-like reflections from the dials. Models in this range are available on a steel bracelet with central links in black or grey ceramic to match the bezel.
Ceramic is used in a similar way to embellish the Chronograph model in this line. In this case, however, the ceramic bezel features a tachymeter. As in all the models in the range, the case has a screw-in back cover. Another safety feature is the lateral protection for the crown and the push-pieces. The chronograph model is fitted with a self-winding mechanical movement. The black or grey dial includes a date aperture at 6 o’clock, 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock and small seconds at 9 o’clock as well as the characteristic “large 12”. As in the case of the Longines Admiral 24h, the central links of the bracelet are in ceramic.
Those who prefer a simplistic sports design and are looking for a timepiece that is at the same time accurate and robust will choose the Longines Admiral Chronograph 24h with a second time-zone, the combination of these two functions being a special treat for connoisseurs.
Longines has used the self-winding calibre L686 for the first time in this model. The chronograph functions include a 30-minute counter at 12 o’clock and a 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock. The black, anthracite or silvered dial features a “large 12”, eight applied hour markers and 24-hour graduations in Arabic numerals. The models in this range are available on a steel bracelet or a black or brown alligator strap, naturally with a triple folding safety clasp.
