An iconic timepiece from The Longines Master Collection – the Official Watch of the 2021 Longines European Equestrian Federation Series presented by Longines
During the 2021 Longines EEF Series in Budapest, Hungary, Longines is proud to introduce a model from one of its famous flagship lines – The Longines Master Collection. Successful since its very first launch in 2005, The Longines Master Collection is the perfect contemporary illustration of excellence and expertise in watchmaking. Powered by a new self-winding movement developed exclusively for Longines, this timepiece is characterized by a moon phase indicator and a refined look, achieving the perfect balance between technical sophistication and classic elegance.
A paragon of Longines’ watchmaking expertise, The Longines Master Collection perfectly reflects the values of excellence and elegance that enabled the brand to achieve a remarkable level of success across the world since its launch in 2005. Known for its technical sophistication, the models of this line are all powered by mechanical movements, showcasing the watchmaking tradition so dear to the brand.
This refined creation embodies one-of-a-kind timeless classic elegance and high performance by pairing dynamic lines with uncompromising quality. A moon phase indicator is featured at 6 o’clock circled by an Arabic numeral date ring with a hand pointing to the current day. The mechanism is powered by a new self-winding mechanical movement, the L899 calibre, developed exclusively for the brand. This technically sophisticated timepiece is perfectly designed to delight those who constantly juggle the various aspects of their lives while looking to pursue high performance in their personal achievements without compromising quality.
In its eternal quest for elegance, Longines has designed a silver “barleycorn” dial featuring painted Arabic numerals and blued steel hands, subtly adding a refined look to the timepiece. Cased in stainless steel, the model presented for the event comes in a round case of 42.00mm in diameter with a transparent case back made of sapphire crystal for optimal visibility. The 72 hours of power reserve was designed to ensure fundamental gains in terms of precision, robustness and reliability. To complete the set, a brown alligator strap makes a fine contrast with the dominant color of the dial to bring out the sleekness of the design.
