History

Luxury watch brand, Longines was brought into existence in the year 1832 by Auguste Agassiz. He initiated the business under a different name in the mentioned year. His watches earned immense appreciation in the local markets and he soon began marketing his collection in distant geographies. Agassiz's hard work and dedication brought him worldwide fame. However, his health started deteriorating and the legacy was passed to his nephew, Ernest Francillon in the year 1850. Longines is now a part of the renowned Swatch Group.

Essence
There was a time when Longines timekeepers were not just artisans excelling in their field. They were explorers and adventurers, who not only designed watches but tested them during memorable flights and underwater adventures. The timepieces from the Heritage Collection celebrate their uninhibited spirits, responsible for creating history in the field of horology. Even today Longines continues to be rooted in its essence of originality by manufacturing stunningly designed timepieces.

Select models feature a transparent caseback allowing a glimpse into the intricate mechanism of the watch.

It is a matter of course that watches from this collection boast an assorted range of  features in its models- so connoisseurs who want a blend of form and function can choose a watch with utilities specific to their needs. Certain timepieces have luminous hour markers for legibility in the darkness. Others feature a chronograh function to measure elapsed time. A date window in select models, gives a holistic view of time. A precise Swiss automatic movement renders the watches in the collection singularly reliable. 

 

Popular Models 
Charles Lindbergh was the first man to fly across the Atlantic Ocean. The flagship model of the heritage collection is the remake of The Charles Lindbergh model. To enable the timepiece to withstand the challenging conditions of the flight, the pilot himself conceived the original model. The remake of this watch is an extraordinary feat. It involves a unique design and elaborate detailing. The most interesting attribute of the watch is its “hour angle feature”. This trait allows the wearer in determining his current position. As the earth makes a complete rotation of 360 degree on its axis in 24 hours, one hour represents a change of 15 degree. So if the angle on the watch measured 30 degree, for example, it would mean that he is two hours off the GMT.

Longines is a swiss brand and a part of swatch group sa founded in 1832 at saint imier , Switzerland. the winged hour glass logo for the brand is inspired by the long affiliation with aviation.the founder was the best friend of aviator Charles Lindbergh renowned for his transatlantic flight.

The model featured here is a revamped version of the 1940 lindbergh watch with the latest technology retaining the 1940s design.

The movement is a l699 calibre self winding movement with a frequency of 28800vph and an impressive power reserve of 46 hours .the highlight feature of the watch is the internal rotating bezel which synchronises the seconds hand with the radio signals and the outer bezel to alter the daily variations in the time.a traditional version of the modern gps watches But a step above the gps.marvellous invention and a Swiss knife for aviators.
the blue hands along with the lacquered white dial and the precisely done markers help to maintain the classic vintage look.The splined &domed crown is a visual treat.

The brown alligator leather strap with double lock clasp ensure secure fastening of the 20th century technology reincarnated


Sapphire crystal ensures that the watch is scratch resistant.

Final verdict: must have for aviation enthusiasts (only link to Charles Lindbergh ). A horological classic at a reasonable price.
