Watchmaker Longines goes back in time to the year 1973 to draw inspiration for its new Longines Heritage 1973. Based on a popular model back then, the Longines Heritage 1973 has a cushion-shaped case elegantly surrounding the dial, true to the original model but updated with a modern taste.
This new creation is fitted with the exclusive Longines column-wheel chronograph movement, developed and produced by ETA exclusively for Longines. Available in black or silver, the dial of the Longines Heritage 1973 boasts a fascinating play of contrasts. Two counters have been included at 3 and 9 o’clock: black on the silvered dial and silvered on the black dial.
With a diameter of 40 mm, the cushion-shaped steel dial of the Longines Heritage 1973 has retained the lines and mood of the original model. The back is fitted with a transparent sapphire glass cover through which the wearer can admire the movement of the calibre as well as the blue column-wheel. The harmonious form of this model is completed by the rounded push-pieces, and the whole is mounted on a black alligator strap.
