Longines Record

Post by koimaster » June 21st 2022, 10:48pm

Chronometric performance is a subject we often don’t talk about when it comes to new watches. For the most part, we are only focused on the aesthetics and we tell ourselves that if we really want to know the precise time, we should stick to quartz watches or our phones (or smartwatches). That may be true, but I certainly won’t want to be wearing a watch, no matter how beautiful it is, if it’s unreliable with accuracy. As a result, I have a soft spot for watches that are chronometer-certified and one of the big new releases from Longines this year at Baselworld is the introduction of their first all COSC-certified collection called the Longines Record


It is no secret by now that the Swiss watch industry is in a bit of a pickle. After an extended period of tremendous growth, exports have fallen considerably over the past two or so years. Watch brands are reacting to this in two main ways: a) give watch lovers and collectors what they want and b) offer more value for their money. Watch enthusiasts today love vintage-inspired watches, and as a result, Longines has given us recent hits like the Heritage 60th Anniversary watch and the Pulsometer chronograph. These two watches are prime examples of listening to buyers and giving them what they want.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
