The Longines Spirit collection revives a rich heritage, linking history and innovation.

Since their beginnings at the beginning of the last century, Longines watches have been known for their reliability, precision, robustness and original technology. No wonder, then, that they have adorned the wrists of adventurers and explorers throughout history. Aviation pioneers like Amelia Earhart, Elinor Smith, and Howard Hughes were all Longines fans, as was polar explorer Paul-Émile Victor.

The Longines Spirit collection brings this rich heritage back to life. Linking history and innovation, the new models take the traditional characteristics of aviator watches and combine them with contemporary lines and codes. The oversized crown, rim, pronounced step around the crystal, the font of the dial, diamond-shaped indexes and large luminous “stick” hands are all elements taken from the era of pioneer aviation. Reworked and updated, they blend harmoniously with the overall contemporary design. The elegance of the watches is complemented by the advanced self-winding movements, L888.4 and L688.4, which have power reserves of 64 and 60 hours, respectively. The new Spirit collection is available in three hand / calendar models (40mm and 42mm) and a chronograph (42mm) with matte black, grained silver or sun blue dial.

The case is adorned with a steel bracelet or a dark brown, light brown or blue leather strap. The three-hand / calendar watch is also available in a “Prestige” edition, with three interchangeable straps (steel, leather and NATO in brown leather).
