The Longines Heritage 1945
Elegance and simplicity
With more than 185 years of experience in the watchmaking world, Longines has laid milestones in the history of watchmaking design. The brand often returns to its roots to draw inspiration and enhance its Heritage line, attesting to the timeless style of its collections.
Currently in the spotlight: a timepiece from 1945 in beige and coppery tones that will delight vintage lovers who value elegance and simplicity.
The Longines Heritage 1945 elegantly marries the sturdiness of its steel case with the warm tones of its brushed coppery dial and the velvety shades of its aged-looking leather strap. The bluish steel hands – leaf style for the hours/minutes hands and baton style for the small second in the centre creates perfect balance. The hour circle alternately displays Arabic numerals and silvery cabochons, which are respectively traced and stamped onto a convex dial.
Originally equipped with a manual winding 12.68Z calibre, this model houses an L609.3 automatic self-winding movement today, providing 42 hours of independent operation. It is housed in a steel 40-mm diameter case and fitted on a beige leather strap, with a nubuck finish.
