Once again drawing from its long watchmaking tradition, Swiss watchmaker Longines is reissuing one of its period time pieces as a new addition to the Longines Column-Wheel Single Push-Piece Chronograph line. Longines’ exclusive single push-piece column-wheel movement is housed in the sober watch case of this new model. This refined chronograph also features a tachymeter scale.
Longines loves to reissue iconic pieces from its museum to expand its Heritage line. Today again, the brand with the winged hourglass launches a refined chronograph produced in the first half of the 20th century. The Longines Column-Wheel Single Push-Piece Chronograph is sure to win over fans of watchmaking tradition.
The transparent steel case back with a diameter of 41 mm reveals the minutiae of Longines’ signature watch movement. The blued finish column wheel shows its perfectly symmetrical profile within this exclusive calibre. A single push-piece is used to control the chronograph’s functions, reinforcing this model’s sleek design.
The Longines Column-Wheel Single Push-Piece Chronograph displays a sober elegance, much like the model that inspired it. Available in black matte or white lacquer, its dial bears black or white contrasting Arabic numerals and a tachymeter scale. Its rhodium-plated or blued finish steel hands stand out, ensuring perfect reading. A black or brown leather strap harmoniously completes this model.
