This model dazzles with a case framed by 38 IF-VVS Top Wesselton diamonds. It is available in one of four striking fashion-forward colours – ivory white, mint green, blossom pink, and serene blue. The alligator straps attractively match the colour of the outer square of the Roman rectangular dial, and an effective contrast is created by an inner square with a guilloche effect.

Longines’ Mini DolceVita is a contemporary jewel watch for dynamic women, showcasing timeless style in every detail. With a sleek profile, refined lines, and a new stainless-steel bracelet, this modern classic pays homage to a Longines legend from 1927 and the original DolceVita collection of 1997, which triggered the now-familiar slogan, “Elegance is an attitude”. It features a 21.5mm x 29mm stainless steel case, powered by a precise L178 quartz movement, and is water resistant up to 30 metres.

Longines’ commitment to elegance is evident in every detail, from the soft lines to precise proportions. “Elegance is an attitude. Of course, it is!” says Jennifer Lawrence, Longines Ambassador of Elegance.

“Elegance is unique because it allows us to break from traditional aesthetic codes while revealing multiple facets of our personality. It is an opportunity to continually reinvent ourselves, based on our desires and moods, whether serious or playful, but always in keeping with our own tastes and values,” says Matthias Breschan, Longines CEO.

The standout feature of the Mini DolceVita collection is a diamond-framed case and a Cosmo circular dial with a silver sunray background, a white matte hour track, and a small seconds subdial. The watch is presented on a newly designed stainless-steel bracelet for exceptional comfort and style.

With its discreet profile, classic styling, and aesthetic variations that are at once timely and timeless, the Mini DolceVita is a small but mighty masterpiece that exquisitely expresses, in equal part, Longines’ quiet luxury and contemporary elegance.

This collection offers a range of colour options and configurations, including models with and without diamonds. Four references featuring diamonds are presented in ivory white, mint green, blossom pink, and serene blue with matching leather straps.

There are five references with eye-catching yet understated cases without diamonds. The Roman-dialled models are joined by Cosmo dial variants with a silver sandblasted finish, available on stainless steel bracelets or stylish leather straps.
