Longines breathes life back into an elegant timepiece from the late 1940s: The Longines Heritage Classic Chronograph 1946

Other
January 06, 2020

Longines extends its Heritage segment with a new interpretation, The Longines Heritage Classic Chronograph 1946, the reissue of a piece produced in the late 1940s. During this period, the Swiss brand designed a series of elegant timepieces at the cutting edge of technology at that time. Such models, with a timeless, understated style, continue to enthral vintage watchmaking connoisseurs today.

Within the 40 mm stainless steel case of The Longines Heritage Classic Chronograph 1946 is a self-winding chronograph movement developed exclusively for the brand (L895.5).

In keeping with the design of the piece that inspired it, this watch features a domed silvered opaline dial enhanced by two finely sculpted counters, a 30-minute counter and a small seconds counter. The harmonious Arabic numerals, in the italic “dolphin” style characteristic of this period, set the pace for this timepiece. At 12 o’clock, LONGINES lettering is subtly applied to the dial in antique-style characters. The “leaf”-style hands in blued steel bring out the beauty of this elegant piece, topped with an anti-reflection sapphire crystal.

This model is mounted on a semi-matte black leather strap characterised by a soft texture and a resolutely vintage finish.
