The Swiss luxury watch making brand Longines was founded by Auguste Agassiz in 1832, and is currently being run under the Swatch Group, Switzerland. Introduced to the industry in 2005, the Longines Master Collection turned out to be a sensation in the market with its innovative colours and designs. It featured the use of an automatic GMT movement with a notably distinctive genuine metallic bezel, encasing vibrantly hued dials to bring about a multi-coloured transformation to the luxury watch-making business.
The Longines L188.8.131.52.7 Master Collection exemplifies feminine elegance and executive superiority, with the contemporary watch-making aspects of a stunning blend of creativity and luxury. This executive ladies’ watch has a silver hued steel case beautifully furnished by 18 carats yellow gold plated bezel, complementing a polished silver dial. The dial, being 25.50mm wide, brandishes off its luxurious appeal by incorporating twelve Wesselton VS diamond studded hour mark indexes, totalling a purity of 0.034 carats. Minute marking indexes are etched in black on the outer rim of the dial. The yellow gold plated hour and minute hands with a golden second’s arm enhance its glamourous appearance. Sapphire crystal finish glass coating over the case window makes the watch resist scratches and frictional wear offs easily. A patterned 18 carats yellow gold and steel bracelet holds the bezel firmly, with a folding clasp buckle that sets the watch apart in terms of elegance.
The Longines L184.108.40.206.7 Master Collection is equipped with self-winding L595/592 mechanical movement beating at 28,880 vibrations per hour, to provide a humongous power reserve of 40 hours. This time piece is also water resistant up to a depth of 30 metres, protecting against accidental immersion under water. While monitoring the regular time keeping functions of hours, minutes, and seconds, this watch additionally offers a date display window located at the 3 o’ clock position of the dial.
