A handsome addition to their repertoire of classically inspired timepieces under their Heritage collection, the Longines Heritage Classic features a distinctive “sector” dial layout, which as its name suggests, is characterized by the sectors created by the concentric rings and their inner indices.
Based off an actual watch from 1934 in the ownership of the brand’s museum, the Heritage Classic is a faithful reproduction packaged in a reasonable 38.5mm brushed steel case. With the trend of brands rehashing models from their archives in modern (read: huge) dimensions, it is refreshing to see Longines reaching a middle-ground with their latest offering that will surely please both vintage watch aficionados and the general consumer at large.
Today, Longines revisits a model typical of the 1930s – characterised by the aesthetic of its sector dial – to bring forth The Longines Heritage Classic. The long and rich history of Longines is written into each of the brand’s designs. Each piece produced over the years is part of the Swiss watchmaking identity, a historical legacy that Longines has always strived to preserve and highlight. That is why it regularly draws on this patrimony to inspire its Heritage line.
