A tale of two styles, Longines’ Master Moon Phase and Spirit Titanium embrace the versatility of the Swiss luxury watchmaker, with two bold new watches designed for aesthetes who demand more for their time
In a tribute to aviation, the Longines Spirit Collection has entered the Age of Titanium, bringing with it a bolder, stronger, sleeker watch, made for those who demand a statement in their wrist attire. Combining state-of-the-art technology with Grade 5 titanium, the result is a watch that’s both lighter yet more hard-wearing than previous counterparts, designed to demonstrate that strength is about so much more than just weight. Finesse certainly plays a part in the overall execution of the Longines Spirit Collection, with a satin-polished finish on the case and bracelet, and sand-blasted anthracite dial, and satin black flange. New for the Age of Titanium models, a slightly darker - and more matte - look thanks to the alloy, which gives the collection a contemporary update, especially when contrasted against the subtle gleam of the mellow gold hands, numerals, stars and hourglass. Worn with a titanium bracelet or NATO-type nylon strap, the latter offers maximum light-weight comfort. But whatever the watch lacks in weight, it more than makes up for in bravado.
THE MOON ON HER WRIST
The Longines Master Collection has captivated those who appreciate the value of an exceptional timepiece since launching in 2005, masterfully blurring the lines between classical elegance, contemporary character and modern innovation. The 2021 tour de force of the Longines Master Collection is the Moon phase display - an elegant model designed or women, in which the complication fits perfectly into a new 34mm case, yet with all the exclusive mechanical movements demanded by its wearer: hours, minutes, seconds and date, chronograph, power reserve and retrograde or annual calendar. The mother-of-pearl dial features the ‘barleycorn’ pattern, emblematic of the Longines Master Collection, and with an interchangeable strap, or more refined stainless steel bracelet designed to hang elegantly. As feminine as it is technical. Seemingly simple, yet with painstaking work to ensure harmony between comfort, style and function. Consider yourself moonstruck.
