BACK TO THE CLASSICS. The 60th Anniversary edition of Longines’ Flagship Heritage is kept simple yet elegant
Classic watches often sport flat dial designs that tend to be boring and don’t really draw much attention. But that’s not the case with Longines’ Flagship Heritage. The 60th anniversary edition this year straddles simple structures of the 38.5mm case and three-dimensional touches on the dial, from the faceted batons to the rising four Arabic numerals and the dial’s sloping rim. Turn the watch over to discover a special engraving of a big ship and details about the collection itself. There are three different cases produced for this edition: yellow and rose gold limited to 60 pieces each, and stainless steel in up to 1,957 units (a clear reference to the collection’s year of inception). It also doesn’t hurt that it was actress Kate Winslet who chose the dial for this anniversary timepiece.
