legance, character and purity are the pillars of The Longines Master Collection, which offers a wide range of exclusively mechanical movements: hours, minutes, seconds and date, chronograph, power reserve, retrograde or annual calendar.
The Moon phase display, introduced two years ago on the men’s models, constitutes the tour de force of the new 2021 models. The case now comes in a 34 mm diameter with a choice of different coloured straps (red, blue, taupe) or a stainless steel bracelet.
Observable through a sapphire glass, the exclusive L899.5 automatic calibre is fitted with a silicon balance-spring that is light, non-magnetic, hard-wearing, stainless and impervious to thermal expansion. The timepieces driven by this movement benefit from a 5-year warranty, a proof of reliability.
On the visible side, the mother-of-pearl dial rivals the diamond hour markers in subtlety. It is also available in sunray blue, and purists will appreciate the now classic and unmistakable silver “barleycorn” pattern, emblematic of The Longines Master Collection.
