Successful timepieces of the past are a great source of inspiration for watchmakers. The new Longines Heritage 1935, recently introduced at BaselWorld 2014, is based on a timepiece that Longines originally created in 1935 for aviators in the Czech Air Force and then made available also to the general public.
The fluted bezel well harmonises with the crown and contributes to the strong personality of this timepiece.
The 42 mm case houses a Longines L615 self-winding movement (ETA 2895/2 based) beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour and offering 42 hours of power reserve.
A limited edition of 1935 numbered pieces, the Longines Heritage 1935 (ref. L2.794.4.53.x) is combined to a black alligator strap and has an indicative retail price of 1,500 Euro.
