Longines continues their line of reissues with the Heritage 1918 with not one but two.
The house of Longines has a strong heritage dating back to their founding 1832. And with the Heritage range of timepieces, they are bringing back their glory days. I started noticing the brand again after they launched the Heritage Single Push Piece Chronograph of which I now own the two toned version.
It is interesting to note that the folks at Longines continues with the use of lacquered dials giving it a truly nice polished look. Combining with the blue and honey coloured numerals gives it that vintage feel and to "complete" the set, the timepiece comes with a honey coloured alligator strap. The men's timepiece is a very wearable 41mm.
With several of their new launches for both men and women, Longines is starting to revive their days of old. The Heritage 1918 also comes with a women's version. Called the Heritage 1918 Lady, the timepiece measures 38.5mm and comes with a diamond bezel adorned with 60 top Wesselton VVS diamonds making up to 1 carat. An elegant piece to say the least.
What makes it even more interesting is the price point at which Longines have been relaunching their timepieces. The list price is under SGD3,000 and I will be surprised if this is not another hit for Longines. Reissue one without the date and I am on the bandwagon! Unfortunately, I did not have access to the Heritage 1918 Lady. But take my word for it, it is truly vintage elegance.
