The Longines Présence collection is a meticulously crafted line of timepieces that embodies the essence of timeless elegance and classic design. This collection, introduced by the Swiss watchmaker Longines with a heritage dating back to 1832, is a testament to the brand's commitment to creating refined and sophisticated watches.
The Présence watches feature round cases, available in a variety of sizes, catering to both men and women. The cases are crafted from high-quality stainless steel, with some models offering gold plating or solid gold options for an added touch of luxury. The smooth and polished finish of the cases exudes a sense of understated elegance, making them versatile for any occasion.
One of the defining characteristics of the Présence collection is its minimalist and clean dials. The watches feature either applied Roman numerals or simple hour markers, beautifully complemented by dauphine or lance-shaped hands. This combination creates a harmonious balance between functionality and timeless aesthetics. Additionally, some models incorporate a discreet date window at the 3 o'clock position, adding practicality to the overall design.
In some cases, the date window is fixed with small seconds sub-dial on the 6 o’clock marker.
