Longines La Grande Classique

This year, Longines is enhancing the La Grande Classique de Longines line that embodies the long-standing aesthetic tradition of the watchmaking brand based at Saint-Imier in Switzerland since 1832. 

Capturing the soul of Longines’ earliest design tradition, the collection La Grande Classique de Longines was presented for the first time in 1992. Since then, these timepieces have become the symbol of the brand’s classical elegance and adorn the wrists of those who know how to appreciate a valued asset.

Today, the Swiss watchmaking brand is adding even more refinement to this line, by proposing different dial and bracelet colour variations.
Like all other models of the collection La Grande Classique de Longines, the charm of these new variations resides mainly in their very slim steel case: barely 4.20 mm and 4.45 mm for these quartz-movement watches. Available in two sizes – 24.00 and 29.00 mm in diameter – these creations display various finely worked mother-of-pearl dials, decorated with a star background offered in pink, blue or white.
Diamonds can also enhance the dial’s delicate surface and the case’s gracious lines. Pink, blue or white alligator straps echo the soft colours of the dial and harmoniously complete the set. As for the steel bracelet, it wonderfully molds to the shape of the wrist thanks to the adaptability of its fine links.
