Luxury watchmaker Longines has exhibited its latest timepieces at Baselworld 2011. The new additions to the Swiss company’s wide range of men’s watches are timepieces with retrograde functions from the Longines Master Collection and two new Longines Column-Wheel Chronograph Records. Four new women’s watches from the Conquest collection and six timepieces from the DolceVita series for ladies are also displayed.
Retrograde Functions and Column-Wheel Chronographs
Latest watches from the Longines Master Collections feature retrograde hands, which mean they utilize circular arc scales on its dial in a fashion that represents the brand’s technical heritage and aesthetical appeal. The featured model is the Longines Master Collection Retrograde Moon Phases watch with four retrograde functions. This brilliant timepiece is equipped with a caliber that was developed specifically for Longines. Such exclusive movement is set in a case with case with refined and elegant lines.
Two new models from the Longines Column-Wheel Chronograph Record series are the latest timepieces constructed in a long tradition of the Swiss company’s watches with authentic and original technical features. These appealing models are a tribute to the brand’s long tradition and include a centre direct-drive second hand with a vernier scale.
Women’s Collections DolceVita and Conquest
Six new rectangular models with contemporary elegance of the DolceVIta collection are also exhibited at Baselworld 2011. New harmonious versions combine steel and rose or yellow gold. New additions to the series have a dial set with diamonds. The latest horological interpretations of the Italian easy-going life style (la dolce vita) pair subtle colors of dials with brilliance of the diamonds.
The list of novelties is concluded with models from the Conquest collection of Longines watches for women. A first sparkly model is set with 120 diamonds around the bezel, while a second model (each model is available with black or white dial) pairs the sparkle of diamonds with the toughness of ceramic. These sporty watches are intended for active and adventures ladies who are not willing to sacrifice elegance.
