Longines celebrates the carefree spirit of the late 1940s. After the harsh war came a time of prosperity and celebration. Elegance was back in fashion; men wore suits and women wore recently-introduced nylon stockings. People got dressed up to go out and dance to the rhythm of jazz bands. The new Longines Heritage Classic - Tuxedo creations - one with 3 hands and the other featuring a chronograph - are inspired by two historic pieces designed in the spirit of their time, modernised.
The flagship is the lead ship in a fleet, upon which the chief commander’s flag snaps in the wind. Each fitted with a self-winding calibre, the models in the Flagship collection will enchant lovers of classic watches. This timeless collection launched in 1957 can still be found in the brand’s range of products in a reworked form.
Saint-Imier (Switzerland), January 2017 – Longines celebrates this year the 60th anniversary of its first Flagship collection. For this occasion, the watchmaking brand introduces the Flagship Heritage – 60th Anniversary 1957-2017. This timepiece was inspired by a Flagship model kept in the Swiss watchmaker’s headquarters, favoured by Longines’ Ambassador of Elegance, Kate Winslet. Available in steel, yellow gold or rose gold, these numbered and limited-edition models display a flagship on the back, as did the original pieces.
