The demand for luxurious, reliable cases with refined aesthetics led Longines to favor yellow gold, resulting in sophisticated and elegant creations like the one presented here. This watch, crafted entirely from yellow gold, features a rounded bezel and snapback case, showing minimal signs of wear. The band houses the winding crown and a single rectangular pusher to activate the chronograph complication, a feature highly esteemed by collectors. Over time, the argenté color of the dial has evolved into a magnificent light cream, complemented by an outer blue tachymeter scale and a red telemeter scale. The dial also showcases inner Arabic five-minute divisions, black Arabic numerals, blue steel hands, and a constant seconds sub-dial at 6 o’clock. Powering this exquisite timepiece is the renowned Longines caliber 12.68 Z, further enhancing its desirability among horology enthusiasts.
