Longines has launched the Heritage 1968, a new watch inspired by a classic square timepiece on display in the Longines Museum.
"Chic and avant-garde, this new model, available in two sizes and two different materials, is a further addition to the brand's Heritage line, and offers a journey through time," Longines says.
The Longines Heritage 1968 L2.722.214.171.124 case has a 33 mm square stainless steel case and a silver dial, with painted Roman numerals and silvered sandy hands. The watch is powered by the calibre L619 self-winding mechanical movement with 42 hours of power reserve.
The Heritage 1968 L2.2126.96.36.199 has an 18 carat pink gold case measuring 26 mm. It is powered by the calibre L595 self-winding mechanical movement, and has 40 hours of power reserve. The dial is silver, with painted Roman numerals and pink gold hands.
Both models have a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with several layers of anti-reflective coating on the underside, and come with a black alligator strap. There is a date display between 4 and 5 o'clock, and the watches are water resistant to 3 bar.
