Stainless Steel Casing

The casing of the timepiece is stainless steel, giving a simple elegance to the look of the watch as well as maintaining its durability.

Longines and Exploration

The Longines brand has long been associated with exploration. In fact, the watchmakers date this back to 1899 when they equipped Prince Luigi Amedo of Savoie in his Arctic expedition. Just 20 years later, Longines was named the official supplier for the International Aeronautical Federation, and began to develop highly accurate and reliable navigation instruments. Longines even partnered with pilot Charles A. Lindbergh, who, having completed his non-stop solo flight over the North Atlantic in 1927, designed a navigational instrument. This was then created by Longines and was used to help aviators calculate longitude, enabling them to find their exact geographical location. The partnership between Longines and explorers has helped to inform over 100 years of watch design with timepieces crafted with the adventurous in mind.

The Master Collection

The Longines Master Collection was first introduced in 2005 as global trends began to show a preference for mechanical movements. The collection sought to address this with a collection of timepieces which all featured mechanical movements.

The Master Collection reflects the ethos of the company which is represented in the slogan, ‘elegance is an attitude’, and personified through the Longines brand ambassadors, such as Simon Baker (pictured).

Essentially, the Master Collection seeks to unite classical elegance with excellent quality. The featured watch is an excellent example of the timeless style that represents this collection and the Longines brand itself.
