Longines has a very high popularity in the Chinese watch market. Its product sales have also occupied the top three positions for a long time. The simple and elegant design style of its watches is well received by consumers. In 2013, the Basel Watch Fair grandly launched a classic replica of the military watch produced in the 1930s as the prototype, and was therefore named the 1938 military watch.
Different from Longines’s usual elegant style, this watch shows the beauty of a strong power. It is reported that it was listed in the country in the second half of last year and the price is nearly 20,000 yuan. In the same style last year, two other watches (24-hour display and ordinary three-hand) were launched.
In terms of design, the large Arabic numerals and minute scale on the dial allow the wearer to read the time clearly. The onion crown references the classic design of the original, highlighting the charm of 1930. The strap is sewn with white thread, and the details are outlined in black and white.
As for the movement, it is equipped with the L705.2 self-winding movement (ETA A07 231), with 27 jewel bearings, and a vibration frequency of 4 Hz. To support daily walking time and timing functions. Under normal conditions (without the timer function), the power reserve is approximately 46 hours.
This chronograph is a new member of Longines Classic Reproduction Series in 2013. Maybe at first glance, you can’t find its special, but after careful taste, you will find that the classical aesthetics contained in it are very evocative. The price of less than 20,000 is relatively easy to get started, which allows many friends who like military watches to wear it, and start unlimited imagination of its original work.
