Longines Watches Review

As one the world’s most loved brands, Longines watches have always been a favourite here at The Watch Gallery – and with good reason.

A Longines watches review can unearth some hidden (and welcome) surprises beneath all the clockwork and the devil really is in the detail. Based in Saint-Imier, Swizterland, Longines was first founded by Auguste Agassiz, just one individual belonging to a prestigious family that birthed scientists, merchants and of course, watchmakers. Success was always a given.

Now owned by the Swatch Group, Longines became known for aviation watches that charmed famed pilot Charles Lindbergh so much that he even designed a brand new timepiece to his specifications – a timepiece that is still produced to this day. One can expect nothing but expert craftsmanship and a commitment to functional luxury that can be accessed by all.

LONGINES ELEGANT STAINLESS STEEL

As an iconic men’s watch, this stainless steel model belongs to the Elegant family as one of Longines hero timepieces. A diameter of 37mm is sizeable without making an overt statement whilst a refined white dial, date aperture and Roman numeral markers all contribute to an exceptional watch.

Perfect For: A gent that requires a timepiece that can adapt to both casual and formal attire.

LONGINES HERITAGE

The Longines Heritage focuses on all things classic with a luxury leather strap and gold arrow markers. 35mm in diameter makes for a very subtle choice complete with water resistance function to 30m, scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass and a stainless steel case.

Perfect For: An event that requires a dress watch (plus, it won’t break the bank).

LONGINES CONQUEST CLASSIC

Set within a masculine polished steel case, the Longines Conquest Classic combines a sport aesthetic with fine Swiss craftsmanship. The dial displays hours, minutes, small second at 9 o’clock and the date at 4.30.

Perfect For: A gent that needs statement and style.

LONGINES PRESENCE ROSE GOLD

The ultimate in dress watches, the Longines Presence in rose gold is a truly timeless decision. A simple yet classic white dial is reinforced with a date aperture, Roman numerals and the instantly identifiable Longines logo. Complete with transparent caseback to see every inch of the inner craftsmanship.

Perfect For: Providing that extra special gift.
