With business-like classical styling and tonneau shape that is the distinction of Evidenza sub-series, a part of the larger Watchmaking Tradition range of Longines Watches, Evidenza Small Seconds timekeeper, is befitting to the wrist of an elegant and successful man. Apart from the smooth flowing lines of its housing, the timepiece by Longines also includes several subtle decorations, such as its dial with a flinque motif or the base of a crown made from blued silver. More importantly, the watch also possesses strong horological values, since it runs on an automatic mechanical movement. The manufacturer also opted for high-end materials which can be recognized in the choice of the material for the glass; this Longines men’s timekeeper has a sapphire crystal with multiple layers of glare-proof coating on its underside.
Longines Watchmaking Tradition Evidenza Small Seconds timepiece includes caliber L615 self-winding mechanical movement (base caliber 2895/2). The high-frequency beating heart of the watch has the diameter of 11 ½ lignes and the thickness of 4.35 mm, and is equipped with a power storage that lasts for about 42 hours.
The timepiece has a flinque pattern on its dial, as it has been mentioned. The refine face of the Longines watch also includes a small seconds counter at the bottom of the face which intermingles with a date aperture. As the entire Evidenza sub-series of Longines timepieces, this elegant watch is made with a housing that mimics the style that was dominant in the 1920s. That distinctive tonneau shape is for this timekeeper kept in subtle and smaller dimensions, especially considering the latest trends and the fact it is a gentleman’s timekeeper.
There are two different versions of the model that feature different case sizes, dial colors and other details. Yet both of them are done executed with elegant and classic design and the choice of colors. The bigger version L2.7126.96.36.199 has a black dial with silver Roman numerals and hands. Its case width equals to 34.9 mm, while its length is 40 mm. Even the smaller silver version of the model, with the reference number L2.6188.8.131.52, has the case width of 33.1 mm and the length of 38.75 mm. The silver base of this version’s face is combined with blue painted Arabic numerals and blued steel hands. Each of the versions is made with the same kind of wristlet: it is a brown alligator leather strap with a folding clasp. Another shared trait is its low water resistance to 30 m.
