1832 marks the year in which Longines was created; a bygone era when the measurement of time was beginning to gain importance and watches were still produced at home. It was the beginning of one of Swiss watchmaking’s most beautiful stories. This key date is highlighted by The Longines 1832 collection, the worthy heir of the brand’s watchmaking expertise and aesthetic codes. Proud of its heritage, Longines is expanding this line with new models. The Longines 1832 is now adorned with pure and elegant matte black dials. This new finish is available on the three-hand/date versions (30 and 40 mm in diameter), and enhances the models featuring an annual calendar (L897 calibre) or a moon phase display (L899 calibre). These new timepieces, whose clear back reveals the ever-fascinating work of the movement within them, are mounted on black leather watch straps that blend perfectly with the collection’s refined lines. Longines will be offering for the first time a beige mother-of-pearl dial, which will be showcased in The Longines 1832 collection. This women’s model features diamond indexes to give it a delicate look. Its 30 mm diameter case is mounted on an iridescent beige leather watch strap that complements the softness of the dial’s colours. The new Longines 1832 models, in black or for women, will undoubtedly continue the brand’s long watchmaking tradition.
