Longines Youthful 2016 watches: La Grande Classique de Longines
In the battle of the slimmest, the Classique is no more a leading contender, but they do woo in style. The steel case is slim at 4.20mm and 4.45mm thickness. It’s not the numbers that has us bowled over. It is the magnificent mother-of-pearl dials in star-burst kind of pattern that is the winner here. They blend in delightfully with pastel hues of pink and blue on the dials. The straps on Longines summer ladies watches are in pink blue and white alligator leather. They complement the dials, wonderfully. The watches are available in 24mm and 29mm sizes. Thumbs up to Longines’ choice of colours.
This young collection from Longines is powered by quartz-movement (battery operated).
Longines Baselworld 2016 watches: The Longines Equestrian Collection
Longines love for the female equestrian enthusiast is not new. For Baselworld 2016 Longines stays true to its passion and has played on the horses’ rectangular buckle for a lot of its watches. This particular style of the Longines Equestrian Collection 2016, features on the show bridle of the Franches-Montagnes, the only Swiss horse breed. Rectangular case of the new Longines models are teamed with three colour dials – polished black lacquered, white mother-of-pearl and silver-coloured checkboard pattern. For a ladies watch, diamonds encircling the dial add just the right tinge of glamour. Leather straps in black and brown/tan are stitched, matching the outfits of lady riders.
Longines Basel 2016 Mens and Womens Watches: Longines RailRoad Hertiage Watch
Once upon a time, Longines watches were worn by railway employees! We are talking early 1920s here. The winged hourglass was a super hit among international railway companies. With the new RailRoad Heritage collection, Longines is bringing back vintage with great charm.
The Longines RailRoad watches have a vintage-appeal with its 40mm steel case, off-white polished dome dial and large black Arabic numerals. To give it the old-world charm, Longines has used letters “RR” on the dial, just like on the original 1900s watch. A minute ring enhances the reading of time, and so do the shiny black hands. The back is as sober and classic as the front. The engravings are inspired by the decorations that adorned the pocket watches that were once designed for the railways. Black alligator strap on this 1900s inspired watch is so apt. Well, their target customers have changed but the style hasn’t for the love of vintage! We love the Longines vintage watch diamonds version.
