The sporty one: The Legend Diver Watch
Taking the design of the 1960s diver watch and bringing it back for 2021 in a refreshed reinterpretation, the Legend Diver Watch returns for 2021 in an elegant and sporty form. Boasting a history that is already well known to avid collectors, the design is a nod to its previous rendition, with delicate additions.
We love the white mother-of-pearl dial covered with sapphire crystal, as well we the complementing satin finish white leather strap. On the inside, the 36mm steel model holds a self-winding mechanical movement, and an impressive white internal rotating diving bezel. A must-have for those who live for adventures, and like to look good when embarking on them.
The feminine one: Longines PrimaLuna
For the lady in the place with style and grace, PrimaLuna is the ultimate wrist candy. Its design embodies what it means to be a woman of elegance, and is inspired by the poetry of the moon. This ethos comes to life in the delicate white mother-of-pearl dial on the 30.50mm watch, as well as the 11 diamond hour markers.
Our favourite part is definitely the dreamy moon phase indicator, really bringing together the spirit of this entire collection. A steel case and bracelet complete the timepiece, for the woman who could wear this to the ballroom just as well as the boardroom.
The time-honoured one: Longines DolceVita
The Longines DolceVita collection is best recognised for its rectangular case, taking inspiration from a previous 1920s model. It’s all in the details with this timepiece, as the 23.30 x 37mm model features a silvered ‘flinqué’ dial adorned with Roman numerals, and blue-coloured steel hour and minute hands.
The steel case is enhanced with diamonds for a perfectly glamorous finish, and comes with a white leather strap. As for the name? It comes from the well-known and much-loved hymn to the sweetness of life. Of course.
The classic one: La Grande Classique de Longines
La Grande Classique de Longines was launched in 1992, and has since really become a signature of the brand. Marrying the watchmaker’s virtues of elegance and sophistication, the line is characterised by its extremely slim profile and rich range of finishes.
Here, the 29mm model comes with a white leather strap and features a white mother-of-pearl dial that is accentuated by 12 diamond hour markers. It is a delicate timepiece, very much suited to the modern minimalist as it is to the storied watch lover with a thing for classics. A winter with a little something for everyone.
