The Flagship models’ enduring charm and uncomplicated sophistication have solidified the Longines collection as an everlasting classic. Among Longines’ inaugural timepieces, the Flagship stands as a testament to the brand’s early legacy.
In 2023, the emblematic winged hourglass brand introduces a trio of fresh iterations to its Flagship Heritage line, now enhanced with the inclusion of a mesmerizing moonphase complication.
Rotating on a small dial at 6 o’clock, the moon’s colour matches the date indicator hand, the hour markers and the hour, minute and second hands – gilt or silvered – depending on the model. They are also coated with Super-LumiNova® for improved readability in daylight or nighttime. The detail contrasts beautifully with a silvered opaline, sunray silver or sunray blue domed dial inspired by the original 1957 model. The Flagship emblem is embossed on the watch’s screw-down case back.
These timepieces are powered by an L899.5 self-winding mechanical movement, fitted with a silicon balance spring, resisting magnetic fields and offering superior precision. It has a power reserve of up to 72 hours.
The redesigned steel case is 38.5mm in diameter and features satin-brushed finishes and shortened chamfered lugs.
These watches are supplied on a brown, grey or blue leather strap to suit the dial colour and fastens with a new Heritage pin buckle.
