Longines on the Right Track With RailRoad Watch

OFF THE RAILS. Given how small a watch dial is, little differences can really make a huge impact. Longines makes the most out of this in its RailRoad novelty




It draws inspiration from the olden days, when Longines rose as a designer of railroad watches, and brings back a 40mm timepiece design from the past.

While looking rather simple in terms of case design, has the numeral “0” instead of “12,” and goes all the way up to 23. This suggests that the owner could easily tell the exact time throughout the day.

A reference to the brand’s railroad watchmaking tradition can be also seen on the exquisite engraving on the case-back.
