Longines – Heritage 1935
Effective watches of the past are an incredible wellspring of motivation for watchmakers. The new Longines Heritage 1935, as of late presented at BaselWorld 2014, is based on a watch that Longines initially made in 1935 for pilots in the Czech Air Force and afterward made accessible also to the overall population.
Energetic however with an unmistakable style, this model is described by the pad formed steel case and matte dark dial with large white Arabic numerals and pear skeleton hands treated with Super-LumiNova. At 6 o’clock, the dial includes a little seconds sub-dial and the date aperture. A rail line track minute ring upgrades the clarity of the time.
The fluted bezel well harmonises with the crown and adds to the solid character of this timepiece.
The 42 mm case houses a Longines L615 self-winding development (ETA 2895/2 based) beating at 28,800 vibrations each hour and offering 42 hours of force hold.
A restricted version of 1935 numbered pieces, the Longines Heritage 1935 (ref. L2.794.4.53.x) is combined to a dark gator tie and has a characteristic retail cost of 1,500 Euro.
