Longines Heritage Watches at Banks Lyon

Longines was founded in 1832 in Saint-Imier by Auguste Agassiz and, since then, the Swiss watchmaker has stayed true to its values of sophistication, craftsmanship and heritage. Longines heritage watches beautifully combine style and performance with tradition and timeless appeal.

At Banks Lyon, we’re proud to stock these Longines watches and will highlight two stunning models in the collection which celebrate the carefree spirit of the 1940s: the chronograph and the classic Tuxedo watches.

Longines Heritage Classic Tuxedo Watch

Both Tuxedo watches have been designed to personify the prosperity and celebration of post-war 1940s when elegance was back in fashion. The Classic model is a modern interpretation that manages to offer a vintage aesthetic at the same time.

This three-handed watch comes with a 38.5mm stainless steel case and leather strap, as well as Arabic numerals on a black and opaline dial. The effect is a charming retro design that looks right at home no matter where you are – the office, a fashion show, a sports arena or an evening out.

The thin baton hands are covered with SuperLumi-Nova®, which improves the dial’s visibility and readability. The watch is also water-resistant up to 30 metres and has a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal that offers longevity to a piece already made to last generations.

A great watch for both everyday wear and special occasions, as it can easily complement any piece in a man’s modern wardrobe.

The Longines Heritage Classic Tuxedo watch can be purchased at Banks Lyon for £1,570 or from £26.17 per month at 0% finance.

Longines Heritage Classic – Tuxedo

According to Longines, the Tuxedo watches offer a glimpse into the wild parties of the later 1940s, and the black and white of the pieces are reminiscent of the suits worn during those festive evenings.

Longines opted not to add the word ‘automatic’ on the dials in order to respect the spirit of the time as well as of historic timepieces. There is also no date window on these contemporary models for that same reason.

Below, we are taking a more in-depth look at each Tuxedo watch:
