Celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Flagship Heritage, Longines has introduced a trio of box-fresh versions, each equipped with a moon-phase complication, to the collection.
Displayed through scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, the domed dial is available in three hues, silver opaline, replete with golden hands; sunray silver, and sunray blue, both of which featuring rhodium-plated hands. All models sport 11 indexes, with a moon-phase apperture sited at 6 o’clock. Super-LumiNova luminescence has been applied for enhanced legibility.
Each model’s 38.5 mm case is coupled with an alligator leather strap, finished in brown for the opaline dial (ref. L4.8126.96.36.199), black for the sunray silver derivative (ref. L4.8188.8.131.52) and blue to match the sunray blue dial of the Ref. L4.8184.108.40.206. Longines’ L899 calibre keeps time, with the self-winding movement beating at 25 200 vph (3.5 Hz) for a generous power reserve of 72 hours.
Each model celebrating the Flagship Heritage’s peal jubilee is priced at $3 050, which, at the current Rand-Dollar exchange rate, amounts to R57 613.
