Following the success of the silver version in 2019, Swiss watch brand Longines is now offering a new interpretation of their Heritage Classic model with a black sector dial.
This sleek wristwatch has a 38.5mm diameter case. Inspired by the designs of the 1930s, the sector dial of this timepiece is composed of different zones, each with a different finish.
The matt centre circle allows the silver slim hands to stand out in contrast. It is inlaid with an anthracite hour circle with a circular brushed finish. The dial also incorporates a ridged small seconds hand. Although a 1930s inspired creation, the Longines Heritage Classic watch incorporates resolutely modern technical features.
The self-winding calibre L 893 is a new generation automatic movement developed exclusively for Longines watches. Equipped with an antimagnetic balance spring made of silicon, this movement offers a 5-year warranty. The small seconds dial, shifted downwards in relation to the centre axis, is inspired by the historical watch of the 1930s.
Dedicated to vintage watch enthusiasts, the Longines Heritage Classic is available with a cognac-colored leather strap or a ‘grain of rice’ stainless steel bracelet.
