Longines Looks to Its Heritage for New Pocket Watch

SWEET AS HONEY. Every now and then, vintage pieces are brought back to induce a sense of classical elegance into a contemporary collection. Longines is taking that approach for the newly released Longines Heritage 1918 watch

The accent pocket watchcase is akin to the house’s first bracelet-chronograph, and the dial style with big Arabic numerals evokes a retro look reminiscent of the early days of flying.

These charming characters are highlighted with a honey brown color on both numerals and alligator leather strap.

The men’s version measures 41mm across and is running on an automatic movement with a 42-hour power reserve.
