For a brand with a long and radiant history like Longines, it isn’t unexpected to look for motivation in effective watches of the past.
A recognition for its long watchmaking custom, the Heritage line is currently improved by another reissue which draws its motivation from a wristwatch made in the last part of the 1960s.
With its pad molded case and box-structure precious stone, the Longines Heritage 1969 is especially in accordance with the substance of the original model which is shown at the Longines Museum in Saint-Imier.
The original 1969 model
For this reissue, Longines settled on a steel case with an exquisite 36 x 36 mm size reasonable for the wrists of the two people. Water opposition is 30 meters/100 feet.
The brushed shimmering dial is completed by rose-shaded hands and files which add to the uniqueness of the watch.
As it was on the original model, the date opening is situated at 4:30.
The Heritage 1969 is fueled by the L888.2 self-winding development (base ETA A31.L01) beating at 25,200 vibrations each hour and offering 64 hours of force hold.
Coordinated to a dark gator skin lash, the Longines Heritage 1969 (ref. L2.310.4.72.0/3) has a retail cost of Euro 1,720/US$ 2,050. longines.com
