A leading name in the world of watch designing and manufacturing, Longines offers timepieces that appeal to both men and women. Its range of offerings include chronographs, sports watches and timing systems or instruments. Amongst its list of achievements, the luxury watch-maker holds the distinction of being the first to provide timers for use at the first-ever modern day Olympics.
Staying true to its slogan, “Elegance is an attitude”, the La Grande Classique de Longines collection is an embodiment of the brand’s age-old watch-making practice. Besides the signature winged hourglass trademark of the brand, the collection’s timepieces also feature a slender construction.
Smart and simple in design, the La Grande Classique de Longines L4.5220.127.116.11 model is a classic timepiece for the modern woman. The case, round in shape and a measuring 29mm, comes with a gold-coated bezel. It has white dial with black hour markers and hands as its ornamentation. While the hour-markers are in finely etched Roman numerals, the hour and minute hands sport a slim stick design.
Attached to the side of the case is an easy to reach and simple in design, push and pull crown mechanism. Adding to the individualistic appeal and functionality of the timepiece, the model features a dual-toned stainless steel and gold finish strap system. The dial’s sapphire crystal glass cover serves the purpose of protecting it from scratches and smudges.
Amongst its long line of features, the model offers water-resistance to a depth of 30m and can handle unexpected splashes of water. The black and white colour combination renders reading of time an easy affair. It comes equipped with a quartz movement for a smooth and precise hand movement and display.
