Longines PrimaLuna: For the woman of substance11:52 am
Longines or the Compagnie des Montres Longines Francillon S.A, based in Saint-Imier since 1832, is among the world’s leading watch companies. Initially known for their ‘Aviators’ range of watches courtesy Charles Lindbergh, Longines is one brand that has over time evolved into a watch lover’s ultimate choice when it comes to selecting the perfect watch. For Longines, elegance is an attitude, an attitude that reflects on your wrist and charms the world. Unlike other famous watch brands, Longines pays equal attention and lays more than enough emphasis on watches for women. As a matter of fact, when we at The Watch Guide decided to do a feature on watches for women, the first name that popped in our heads was but obviously, Longines. With a fleet of gorgeous brand ambassadors like Kate Winslet, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Chi Ling Lin and Stefani Graf to name a few, the fact that Longines is a favourite among all women doesn’t really surprise us.
What women want…
Though people think it’s impossible to figure out what women really want, it’s actually very simple. Just some diamonds, a couple of stars and not to forget, the scenic Moon. Before you go off the grid wondering where exactly we’re headed to with this, just read along. Longines has always been a genius at watchmaking and they struck gold when they came up with the Longines PrimaLuna. Inspired by the silvery moon and the glistening stars, the Longines PrimaLuna is a captivating watch lined with diamonds, reflective of stars in the galaxy that glitter playfully. The soft silhouette of the Moon is recreated with the purity of the exquisite mother of pearl dial surrounded by alluring star-like diamonds. Graceful and sophisticated, the Longines PrimaLuna exudes a magical elegance, attracting women who appreciate the intricacies of watchmaking and passing time.
Moon of my life, my sun and stars
Though it sounds romantic and rigged (GOT fans would understand), these three elements are exactly what the Longines PrimaLuna represents. The watch is a tribute to the Moon that stands out amidst millions of enchanting stars in the galaxy, just like the woman who wears the PrimaLuna. The watch is crafted for the modern, sophisticated woman who appreciates timeless elegance and stands out because of her taste and charm. Designed in a classic round 27mm case, the watch is supported with a stainless steel bracelet with a triple safety folding clasp and push button opening mechanism which ensures easy clasping and detachment of the watch.
Crafted elegantly in mother of pearl, the dial resonates the Longines style – simple yet stunning. Adding grace and femininity to the watch are the hands in blue contrasting stunningly with the dial. Instead of conventional hour markers, this classic ladies timepiece features 11 Top Wesselton VS diamonds as index markers, the date window at the 3 o’clock index position (which explains the 11 diamonds) and 44 Top Wesselton VVS inlaid diamonds around the 27mm sized case, add an angelic appeal to the watch.
With a water resistance of 30 meters and scratch resistance, given the sapphire crystal, don’t mistake the watch to be a delicate darling. To add to the comfort factor, the easy to use push and pull crown enables smooth control of the hands. The watch houses the L250 Calibre quartz movement which ensures smooth functioning.
The PrimaLuna is a representation of a woman who values time, keeps up with the changing trends and stands out wherever she sets foot. If you look in the mirror you will find that woman staring right back at you. Make her happy by getting her the Longines PrimaLuna!
