Longines Spirit Chronograph L3.818.104.22.168
The Longines Spirit is the winged model that has turned the Longines brand into an emblem of elegance. The Spirit collections represent the long heritage of Longines and bring it to life. The collection links history with innovation by bringing back the famous piloting timepieces and combining them with the latest technology. Longines have used both technical and aesthetic innovations to make this collection stand out as a modern watch.
The Longines Spirit Chronograph L3.822.214.171.124 model is one of the iconic watches you will find in the Longines Spirit collection. This new Spirit model features a 42mm casing.
The entire watch is made of stainless steel, and the watch is relatively big with a dimension of 42mm. The back case has the Longines winged logo at the center. On the back case, you can see the type of material used in making the case: stainless steel, the collection type, and the water-resistance features of the watch. The case of the Longines Spirit Chronograph L3.8126.96.36.199 model has two screw-in crowns. There is a screw-in crown at the 10 o’clock marker and another at the 3 o’clock marker. The one at the 10 o’clock marker is used to set the date, and the one at the 3 o’clock marker is used to set the time. The two crowns are screw down to ensure a firm and better closure for water resistance.
The glass covering the dial is made from sapphire crystal glass. It has been coated on both sides by several layers of anti-reflective coating and is scratch-resistant. The watch has a water-resistance level of up to 10 bar. The 42 mm grated silver case comes with a bezel, carefully integrated with the dial.
Dial & Hands
The dial is matte black. There are different color aesthetics present on the dial, which makes it look more appealing and lively. Applied Arabic numerals have been used to mark the hour’s markers. The large numerals are filled with SuperLuminova. The hands of the watch are carefully designed to resemble the propeller blades of an airplane.
The Longines Spirit Chronograph L3.8188.8.131.52 model has chronograph functions. The dial has a chronograph counter. At the 3 o’clock marker, there is a 30 minutes counter, at the 6 o’clock marker, there is a 12 hour counter, and at the 9 o’clock marker, there is a constant seconds counter. The chronograph seconds' hand of the watch and the 12 hours and 30 minutes intervals hands all contain a red tip. This spices up the coloring of the dial. Users can read the minutes from the dial by looking at the periphery of the dial's circumference.
Between the 4 o’clock and 5 o’clock marker, the Longines Spirit Chronograph L3.8184.108.40.206 model has a date window. There are five stars on the dial, which are meant to represent Longines' improvement in quality and the reliability in the watch's movement. The five stars can be seen just below the Longines logo at the 12 o’clock mark.
Movements & Functions
The L3.8220.127.116.11 model of the Longines Spirit collections uses an automatic movement. The engine that runs this watch is the Longines caliber L688.4. The caliber L688.4 is based on the Longines ETA A08.L01. The caliber not only has chronometer certification, but it has also been upgraded to have the latest silicon balance spring to improve its movements. The caliber L688.4 engine powers the watch's minutes and hours and the date functions and chronometer functions.
The watch's automatic movement allows for a separate screw-in crown to be used in correcting the watch's date. The 3 o’clock screw-in crown is used to correct the date, while the 10 o’clock screw-in crown is used to correct the watch's date. The Longines caliber L688.4 ticks at 4 Hz and has an impressive power reserve of roughly 60 hours. The watch has a chronometer certification from COSC.
The Longines Spirit Chronograph L3.818.104.22.168 model comes with a silver stainless steel strap. The grained silver stainless steel strap matches with the matte black dial of the watch. The contrast of the two colors gives the watch a unique but classy appeal. The buckle used is a triple safety folding clasp and uses the push-piece opening mechanism to open and close.
