The Longines Heritage Chronograph

The Longines Heritage Chronograph is perhaps one of the most affordable single push button column wheel chronograph on the market.

I recently featured the Heritage Chronograph in another post. Here are two of the three models close up.

First the monopusher Chronograph featuring a pulsometric scale reference L2.800.4.23.2.

Clean white lacquer dial...

Very legible and the glossy lacquer makes it even more so.

The accompanying brown leather strap has an orange backing. Very contrasting and very pretty!

Next comes the two toned dial version reference L2.800.4.26.2 which comes without the pulsometric scale.

I like this version the best... clean. And the slightly greyish blue toned lacquer dial is just perfectly executed.

Also comes with a leather strap and orange back.

So which one do you prefer? The white lacquered dial with a pulsometric scale or the clean two toned dial?

Then there is the black dial version (reference L2.800.4.53.0) which is also very versatile as a day time turned night formal timepiece. Head down to the Longines Boutique or to Watches of Switzerland to try one and perhaps get one for the Chinese New Year. I assure you the timepiece is very affordable. The white lacquered dial L2.800.4.23.2 retails for S$4,770 while the two toned L2.800.4.26.2 retails for S$4,930 inclusive of GST.
