Longines has launched its Column-Wheel Single Push-Piece Chronograph models, inspired by the brand's first chronographs wristwatches developed in 1913.
Part of the Longines Heritage collection, the Column-Wheel Single Push-Piece Chronograph is powered by the L788 calibre - a monopusher movement that allows all of the chronograph functions to be controlled with a single push-piece.
The timepiece comes in three versions, with a 40 mm case in 18 carat pink gold or stainless steel. Each model has a white dial and blued hands, and the blue column wheel can be viewed through a sapphire crystal case back. There is a date aperture at 6 o'clock, and two counters are placed at 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock.
The numerals are in black, with a red '12', in the style of the 1913 watches. Two of the models feature Arabic numerals, while the third steel watch has Roman numerals. This third model also has a thicker case and moving lugs, taking inspiration from a historic timepiece.
