Longines Heritage Classic, New Model Inspired by the Design of a 1930s Watch

With a streamlined design, the new Longines Heritage Classic perfectly respects the 1930s spirit of the piece that inspired it. In particular, it reflects the aesthetic with its sector dial and a subtle balance of colors and lines. Its silvered opaline disk glows, emphasizing the fine blued steel hands which stand out at its center.

The hour circle, adorned with Arabic numerals and hour markers, appears on a satin finished silvered disk. A fine edge, also in silvered opaline, surrounds the hours. Another significant detail of the dial is the small seconds counter rendered in striated silvered opaline, characterized by its size and remarkable position, which remains faithful to the original model.

This new Longines Heritage Classic timepiece is driven by a new, exclusive calibre (L893.5), and features a silicon balance spring. This self-winding mechanical movement, developed especially for the pieces of the Heritage line, enables the small seconds display to be located under the central axis for a design that is even closer to that of the historical pieces.

The watch is also distinctive for the diameter of its stainless steel case: 38.50 mm, a contemporary dimension that reflects the elegant pieces of the 1930s.

A blue or semi­ matte black leather strap with beige overstitching adorns the case. These two variations are joined by a denim-effect leather NATO strap of on anthracite or blue color. A tool provided with each model makes it possible to easily interchange these straps on a whim.
