Longines Column-Wheel Single Push-Piece Chronograph

Swiss watch brand Longines loves to reissue iconic pieces from its museum to expand its Heritage line. This time, the brand launches Longines Column-Wheel Single Push-Piece Chronograph, a re-issue of a refined chronograph produced in the first half of the 20th century.
The transparent steel case back with a diameter of 41 mm reveals the minutiae of Longines’ signature watch movement. The blued finish column wheel shows its perfectly symmetrical profile within this exclusive calibre. A single push-piece is used to control the chronograph’s functions, reinforcing this model’s sleek design.
The Longines Column-Wheel Single Push-Piece Chronograph displays a sober elegance, much like the model that inspired it. Available in black matte or white lacquer, its dial bears black or white contrasting Arabic numerals and a tachymeter scale.
Its rhodium-plated or blued finish steel hands stand out, ensuring perfect reading. A black or brown leather strap harmoniously completes this model.
