Swiss watch brand Longines expands its DolceVita collection by adding a new model featuring a sectorised dial typical of the Art Deco period.
Inspired by a model from the 1920s and characterised by a rectangular case, this line offers an extensive range of men’s and women’s timepieces in an ode to the Italian “dolce vita”. Longines continually develops its DolceVita range of variations, like so many different ways of living and expressing la dolce vita.
This year, the collection takes on a new sectorised dial characteristic of the Art Deco style. Asserting a subtle balance of silver tones, it is distinctive for its hour-circle adorned with Arabic numerals and long, fine hands, as well as cross hairs at the centre of the dial. This dial, characterised by its simplicity, completes the men’s models of this line.
Longines is also extending its selection of interchangeable straps by offering new leather variations in white, blue and golden hues. These accessories make it possible for each customer to personalise their watch according to their desires, and are available in two sizes, S and M.
