So, we’re putting a spotlight on the new collection by Longines – the Spirit Zulu Time. We will explore the rich history of this range of watches, as well as take an in-depth look into each of the new pieces, explaining how to purchase them through Banks Lyon.

A Collection Designed with History at its Forefront

This brand new collection of watches is based on Longines’ foundations, with inspiration drawn from the first ever watch manufactured by the company. Longines produced their first ever movement in 1867, the 20A, winning themselves an award at the Universal Exhibition in Paris the same year. They quickly made a name for themselves in the watchmaking industry, establishing Longines as a true pioneer. A Longines watch was and still is, recognised by the winged hourglass symbol engraved on the movements, as well as the Longines name on the dial.

This can be found on all their timepieces, including those in their latest collection, the Longines Sprit Zulu Time. This range of watches is the latest collection by the brand and draws inspiration from their humble beginnings and link to vintage sporting timepieces.

Longines has been tied to both aviation and the nautical industry, producing robust, durable, and aesthetically pleasing timepieces for those in either field. The link to these sectors can be seen in much of their designs, whether it be the colourway, small details, or strap material.

Let’s delve into the latest collection of Longines watches to discover more about this incredible range and their rich and fascinating history.

Introducing the Longines Spirit

The Spirit collection by Longines was first introduced in 2020 and drew inspiration from aviation adventurers and explorers from history. Their elegant design includes nods to original pilot timepieces from the early 1900s. For example, Longines Spirit watches have a larger than average dial and case, common in pilot timepieces as seeing the time quickly without taking their focus away from the plane was and still is essential.

In addition, the Longines Spirit Chronograph, for example, combines the history of the brand and its links to the aviation industry with the modern functionality of watchmaking as it is today.

The Zulu Time is a sub-genre of the Longines Spirit collection and has quickly made a name for itself as one of the most sought-after and reliable GMT timepieces available today. Let’s take a look at some of the incredible pieces from the collection available here at Banks Lyon.
