Longines Elegant Collection

Paying tribute to their famous slogan “Elegance is an attitude“, the Swiss luxury watch maker Longines unveils the new Elegant Collection offering models that are the perfect embodiment of the classical design and sleek lines typical of timepieces crafted by the Saint-Imier based brand which was founded in 1830. Available in three sizes and fitted with self-winding, mechanical movements, these watches offer a broad choice of dials, each presenting its own definition of elegance.

Longines is well known for its classical designs, and the Longines Elegant Collection is a line of refined timepieces. It has always been the essence of the Longines brand and is the key word in its slogan: “Elegance is an attitude”. Unique and honest, this message places the products and culture of the brand known by its winged hourglass logo at the heart of its prestigious past.

The Longines Elegant Collection includes classic round watches with sleek lines in three sizes: 25.50 mm, 34.50 mm and 37.00 mm. Displaying the hours, minutes and seconds, as well as the date, these models are available in steel or steel and rose gold cap, and certain versions are set with diamonds. Evoking the Longines watchmaking tradition, all models in this collection are fitted with self-winding movements. The visual lightness of the design is finished off with a bracelet made up of fine links.

The Longines Elegant Collection offers a choice of dials, each presenting its own definition of the brand’s core value. The dark dials are either in black lacquer decorated with diamond hour symbols or anthracite with diamond or applied hour symbols. The lighter-coloured dials include matt white decorated with painted Roman numerals or applied hour symbols, striped silver or mother-of-pearl with diamond hour symbols. The latter versions have black hour and minute hands.
