Longines Heritage Collection

Post by koimaster » January 17th 2022, 12:26pm

Much of the Heritage collection is inspired by vintage pieces in the Longines Museum in Saint-Imier, Switzerland

Trends come and go in the watch world, but the trend toward nostalgia has proven to possess more staying power than most. Fueled by the growth of the pre-owned market and high-profile watch auctions, modern re-creations of vintage timepieces from the early to mid-20th century have proliferated across the industry for nearly a decade now, with just about every brand mining its past for pieces that might appeal to the retro-look tastes of today’s consumer. One watch brand, however, has been servicing this audience longer than most, and with a greater variety of styles: Longines, which traces its history back to 1832 and which began seeing the writing on the wall for the vintage revival as early as the late 1980s.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

My favourite is the Heritage Military Marine Nationale. I've come pretty close to buying that one.
Feel the same way about the legend diver but I have read mixed reviews about fit.

The LLD is really nice but the internal bezel feels a bit cheap. No moving parts on the Heritage - apart from the, er, movement - so it avoids any cheapness. It's a great watch.
