Longines Heritage 1918

The Heritage1918 model, a re-issue of an iconic Longines wrist watch, draws its inspiration from the rich history of the brand and echoes the first bracelet-chronographs created by Longines. As with the latter, this timepiece features a dial also found on pocket watches from this period.
Blued steel and honey-coloured varnish impart character to hands that stand out on a white-lacquered polished dial, which mark the hours and minutes on this reissued model.
The Longines Heritage 1918, Men's Version
The small second hand at 6 o’clock adds dimension and contrast to the dial with its Longines’ blue colour. The honey colour can also be found on the large numerals painted on the dial, providing this emblematic early 20th century timepiece with a remarkably successful balance.
The Vintage Longines Chronograph
This refined model is available in two sizes to adapt to the wrists of both men and women. Measuring 38.5 or 41 mm, it houses an L615 automatic winding mechanical calibre.
The Longines Heritage 1918, Ladies' Version
An additional interpretation of the ladies version is adorned with a row of sparkling diamonds that enhance the sophistication of this timepiece’s timeless elegance. To complete the set, a honey-coloured alligator strap echoes the dominant colour of the dial harmoniously.
