The winged hourglass brand’s Master Collection sees a new moon phase edition added to its ladies model.
Utilising features like chronographs, power reserves, retrogrades, and annual calendars, the Longines Master Collection has long been a pillar for technical watchmaking. Additionally, the moon phase display introduced to its men’s watches two years ago became a tour de force of the new 2021 models.
With a female clientele who are eager to have technical features on their watches, Longines is adding the moon phase display to its latest line of ladies watches in the Master Collection. Fitting such a complication into a 34 mm is no easy feat, but Longines hopes to add this feature to its female watches while preserving its finesse and elegance that have long embodied the ladies’ models.
The moon on her wrist
Expanding the Master Collection with a piece that is as feminine as it is technical, Longines has taken the privilege of offering women the Moon.
The new moon phase display, painstakingly fitted into the delicate 34 mm case to ensure harmonious proportions, is on full display along with a date hand at 6 o’clock. Like all other Longines timepieces powered by the exclusive L899.5 automatic calibre, the Longines Lady Master Collection Moon Phase watches benefit from a 5-year warranty.
Visually speaking, the watch features stunning but subtle details like diamond hour markers and a mother-of-pearl dial that displays the classic but unmistakable silver “barleycorn” pattern emblematic of the Master collection. Wearers can choose between a leather strap version available in red, blue, or taupe, or a steel bracelet version.
