The Longines Spirit collection welcomes a new chronograph watch with flyback function.
This new timepiece exemplifies the pioneering spirit that has driven the Saint-Imier based watchmaking brand since its earliest days. It also pays tribute to adventurers both past and present.
Longines actually equipped its first models with a flyback function in 1925 and filed a patent for this on 12 June 1935. The patent went on to be registered on 16 June 1936: a world first.
The Longines Spirit Flyback fuses the brand’s illustrious heritage in manufacturing chronographs with ultra modern technology. It houses the Calibre L791.4, a new exclusive column-wheel chronograph movement with a silicon balance spring.
Certified as a chronometer by COSC (Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres), this self-winding movement offers a power reserve of 68 hours.
It features a personalised weight engraved with the globe representing the Longines Spirit collection and the name Longines Flyback. A transparent case back reveals all the details of the calibre.
The Longines Spirit Flyback stands out with its refined aesthetics and particularly meticulous finishes, which range between satin, matt, polished and engraved details. It features a bi-directional bezel enhanced by a coloured ceramic insert with luminescent markers.
Its black or blue sunray dial features bronze-shaded hands and numerals coated with Super-LumiNova®. The 42mm steel case has an interchangeable stainless steel bracelet, a brown leather or blue fabric strap.
The straps have a folding clasp fitted with a new micro-adjustment system for maximum comfort and a perfect fit. A beige NATO strap is also available.
