Longines Military Heritage 1938
Longines is pleased to have launched a brand-new field watch. With a rugged quality that is designed to mimic the look of the form and function of the original, the reissue marries together the look of the original with modern technology. Field watches have been a popular choice for collectors the world over and Longines heritage military collection in the 1938 timepiece is a popular choice as well.
The latest Longines watch has a limited production of only 1938 numbered pieces. It is delivered in a hand wound format based off of the original ETA 6498/1 power system. As an extremely accurate watch it delivers 18,000 vibrations per hour. The vintage field watch did beat at a much lower frequency but the new complementary movements deliver an unprecedented level of accuracy.
Longines has made sure that this watch is no slouch when it comes to power supply either. Featuring a 48 hour power reserve, this is a watch that can stand up to a wide range of situations or even throughout arduous travel. The small seconds hand shows incredible attention to detail through a period correct.
The matte black Dial as well as the cream-colored numerals in Arabic font delivers a watch that can be viewed under incredibly low light conditions. The walk showcases a distinct heritage and in the vintage watch design it truly is a no-frills solution as a timepiece.
Other vintage improvements include an anti-reflective dome sapphire crystal outer core as well as a no-frills charcoal gray leather strap with some machine run patina. The timepiece also comes complete with a cognac style NATO strap as an alternative choice.
If you are seeking a modern update on a classic vintage timepiece, this is a wonderful solution that you can enjoy from Longines.
