The hands made of blue stainless steel give the dial a harmonious aesthetic, and the leaf-shaped hour and minute hands complement the small central seconds hand. The raised Arabic numerals and silver gemstones are intricately arranged, showing the authentic style of the mid-20th century.
Click for details: This year, Longines launched the new Record series to celebrate the 185th anniversary of the brand. This series inherits the pure watchmaking tradition from Somia in Switzerland, is equipped with a self-winding mechanical movement, and combines classic and elegant design with superior quality. It aims to become the iconic masterpiece of Longines. The Record series has attracted much attention due to the use of single crystal silicon hairsprings in the movement. For Longines, this is also the first watch series to be certified by the Swiss Astronomical Observatory (COSC). The Record series can be divided into four different sizes: 26mm, 30mm, 38.5mm, and 40mm. There are six styles for men and seven styles for women.

This watch is equipped with an exclusive movement developed by ETA for Longines. This exclusive movement is known for its outstanding travel time accuracy, with an error of only ± 5 seconds per year. At the same time, it uses a GPD (Gear Position Detection) system that resets the hands after the watch is affected by a magnetic field. In addition to these attractive features, the movement is also equipped with extremely long battery life and perpetual calendar function.
