Now, Longines is happy to present a new Twin-Aperture Date Calendar men’s watch within its acclaimed line. It is not a secret that ordinary timepieces are difficult to read because of their dimensions. In order to solve this problem, the company’s esteemed craftsmen have developed a particular calendar mechanism, which displays the date in a double-aperture.
A distinctive detail of the new Longines watch, the date twin exhibition window is featured in the upper section of the display. Performed in black or silvered “flinque”, the dial is completed either with 12 white painted Roman numerals or 12 blue painted Arabic numerals. The numbers are supported by a charismatic minute graduation, dressed in the same color.
The progression of hours and minutes is marked by centralized blued hands. They harmonize perfectly with the silvered background. As to the black dial, the brand went for silvered steel hands.
The seconds, meanwhile, are ensured by a counter at 6 o’clock. The display of the new Twin-Aperture Date Calendar watch also reveals the company’s logo, which resides beneath the numeral at 12 o’clock. The face of the timepiece is covered with a domed, scratch-resistant and glare-proofed sapphire crystal.
The supremely readable dial is enclosed in a tonneau-shaped case, manufactured from stainless steel. It is equipped with an easy-to-grip winding crown, which sits at 3 o’clock. The case handles depths of up to 30 meters.
The absolute precision of the timekeeper is guaranteed by a self-winding mechanical movement -caliber L599 - ETA 2892 A2. Paved with 30 jewels, it runs at the rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour and offers a 42-hour power reserve.
The new Longines watch is secured to the wearer’s wrist on a stainless steel bracelet. It terminates in a triple folding clasp, operated by a push-piece. Alternatively, the model can be mounted on an extra-long dark brown genuine leather strap, closed with a triple folding or standard clasp.
