Longines concludes its 190th anniversary year in style with the release of an automatic bicompax chronograph joining its Record Collection. As a line of C.O.S.C. certified chronometers, the Record Collection was launched in celebration of the Longines’ 185th anniversary.
Maintaining the high standards of the winged-logo brand, the new Record Heritage exudes a distinctive vintage aura with a round, 40mm stainless steel case. The exterior includes slim rectangular pushers and a polished and beveled bezel that encloses the domed anti-reflective sapphire glass. The dial is matt black and bears elegant golden Arabic numerals and slender indexes. There is also a tachometer scale placed on the periphery of the dial.
A silicon balance spring drives an exclusive Longines movement that is anti-magnetic. The caliber L895.4 is chronometer-certified by the C.O.S.C., thus guaranteeing precision and reliability, and offering a power reserve of 59 hours. Visible through the transparent case back, it drives the slender, golden leaf-shaped hands.
The new Longines Record Heritage is presented on a brown leather strap with ecru stitching, retailing for $3,000.
