Coming from the Elegance collection of Longines watches that are oriented towards women, and its sub-section PrimaLuna that includes timekeepers of circular shape, this pretty looking decorative ladies’ timepiece sports the smallest dimension of all the models in the palette. The minute and refine looking product by Lonigines includes cases of different materials, and its housings can be forged from steel, gold or a combination of these two metals. Likewise, the different versions have different amounts of diamond decorations. The traits that remain the same, regardless of the version, are the diameter of just 23 mm, a lovely looking 5-row metal bracelet, as well as Longines made quartz movement.
The decorative women’s watch from the Elegance series by Longines is ornate with diamonds. Once again, the number and the order in which these decorations are done depend on the version of the model. They can be really subtle and almost unnoticeable when they are used only as hour markers. For this purpose, Longines used 12 Wesselton VS gemstones with the total weights of 0.034 carats. The precious stones on the dial can be followed with a larger cluster of 48 Top Wesselton VVS diamonds (total weight 0.192 carats) on the watch’s bezel. In each of the cases, the sparkly stones are combined with a white mother-of-pearl dial of the watch that is guarded with a scratch resilient sapphire glass with multiple layers of anti-reflective coatings on its bottom side.
Inside the case of this elegant women’s timekeeper, beats the L963 quartz caliber (base movement ETA 280.002). The quartz caliber runs on 321 Renata batteries and incorporates 5 jewels. Since the watch has a clear decorative purpose, it is not surprising that it only supports the most basic of water resistances, just to 30 meters, which is enough to guard the timepiece from splashes and safe to wash hands with, but not enough resistant to be worn on a beach or during swimming.
There are three versions of Longines Elegance PrimaLuna small timekeeper. The first one is the L18.104.22.168.6 that has a silver colored stainless steel case and a bracelet (this and all the other versions have the attachment fasten with a triple folding safety clasp). The second variation with the reference number L22.214.171.124.6 has the same face like the first one, including the blued steel hands, but has a steel and 18K pink gold case and bracelet, as well as diamond decorations on the bezel. The most lavish version of the watch is the L126.96.36.199.6 which is fitted into a housing made completely from 18K pink gold, with the matching metal bracelet, and hands in a pink gold tone.
