Launched in 2005, the Longines Master collection comprises some of the most elegant offerings from the brand that stand true to their tagline ‘Elegance is an attitude’. The timepieces are imbued with the watchmaking DNA of the brand, which believes in crafting classical watches that stand the test of time. They are driven by automatic movements and are suited to anyone who like value-for-money propositions when it comes to horological preferences. While the initial versions were only crafted using stainless steel, the brand gradually expanded the range by introducing precious metals like pink and yellow gold. The latest launches embody the watchmaking expertise and timeless elegance of the St.Imier-based brand that enrich the Master collection with two new models crafted in 18-karat pink or 18-karat yellow gold—each version limited to 500 pieces only.

There is a rectangular date aperture positioned at six o’clock with the numerals indicated in black against a white backdrop. The watch gets a timeless appeal, thanks to the yellow or pink gold hands…sweeping across the dial, indicating the hours, minutes, and seconds. The GMT hand is longer and is in black to complement the 24‑hourscale numerals, thus making the second time zone easier to read.

Multiple or dual time-zone watches are linked to the brand’s pioneering spirit of crafting timekeepers, intrinsic to aviation. It originated with the first Longines dual time‑zone wristwatch manufactured in 1925, which featured the Zulu flag on its dial—Zulu referring to the letter ‘Z’, which designates universal time for aviators and members of the armed forces. Longines have played a crucial role in crafting watches for aeronautical purposes and were among the first companies to register a patent for this complication, as early as 1936.
