Longines has launched new models in the Master Collection, featuring a moon phase indicator at 6 o’clock circled by an Arabic numeral date ring, on which a hand points to the current day. The mechanism is powered by a new movement developed exclusively for the brand – the L899 calibre.
A sleek dial for these new pieces combines with timeless design, creating a subdued and harmonious aesthetic. Available in two sizes (40mm and 42mm in diameter), the new models come in a range of different dials: black barleycorn with painted Roman numerals, silvered barleycorn with painted Arabic numerals or blue sunray with applied indexes.
The 40mm version is also available with diamond indexes for a refined result. The new models are offered with either a stainless steel bracelet or a black, brown or blue strap to match the different dial colours. Since this line of models, all powered by mechanical movements, was created in 2005, it has over the years added new variations and sophisticated features that showcase the watchmaking tradition so dear to the brand.
