During the 2022 Longines EEF Series Semi-Final in Budapest, Hungary, Longines is proud to introduce a model from one of its famous flagship lines – The Longines Master Collection. Powered by a self-winding mechanical movement and equipped with a chronograph, this timepiece features a moon phase indicator, 24-hour indicator and a 30-minute counter with a date display, making it a truly phenomenon model. Successful since its very first launch in 2005, The Longines Master Collection is the perfect contemporary illustration of the brand’s watchmaking expertise.
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 that the brand holds dear.
This refined creation embodies one-of-a-kind timeless classic elegance and high performance by pairing dynamic lines with uncompromising quality. The mechanism is powered by a self-winding mechanical movement (L687 calibre) and is coupled with chronograph functions characterized by a central 60-second hand, a moon phase display with 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock and 30 minute-counter with a date display at 12 o’clock. A 24-hour indicator at 9 o’clock and a half moon central hand indicating dates are featured to further underline the boldness of the brand’s technical design and its tireless pursuit of mechanical reliability. With the sleek and powerful geometry incorporated into its aesthetics, 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 scratch-resistant sapphire crystal for optimal visibility. A power reserve of approximately 66 hours 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.
