Longines Spirit Chronograph L3.8126.96.36.199
Founded in 1832, Longines has been relevant in watchmaking even longer than some industry pioneers, such as Omega. Established by Auguste Agassiz, Henri Raiguel, and Florian Morel, this now-famous company's original name was Raiguel Jeune & Cie.
Much like many leading Swiss watchmaking companies, Longines was also bought by Swatch in 1983. Over time, Longines has established its position as a frontrunner for the watch industry worldwide. From luxury watches to dive watches, their prowess extends to every aspect of watchmaking.
Although Longines has been in the industry for almost two centuries, they have not failed to evolve their watchmaking techniques and designs of the time. Their designs offer a perfect blend of a rustic touch and modern aesthetics, and the Longines Spirit Chronograph L3.8188.8.131.52 is no different.
This watch was made with the approach of flawlessly combining elegance and luxury. The watch's casing is made with polished stainless steel, smoothly attached to the watch's stainless steel bracelet. Built with a screw-in crown, the watch's exterior design is sleek and stylish as per the watch's initial approach. As far as the watch's functionality is concerned, the strap buckle used is a triple safety folding clasp and push-piece opening mechanism. Not only does this offer a snugger fit, but it also gives a more professional look to the watch.
One of the essential features of the watch is the crystal used to cover the dial. Longines has used sapphire, the best possible material for the crystal. While the scratch-resistance and durability of the crystal add to the watch's longevity, the multiple layers of anti-reflective coating on the crystal don't let bright lights make it difficult to check the time or tarnish the aesthetics of the watch.
What truly adds substance to the aesthetics of this watch is its meticulously designed dial. The dial's broad background is silver-colored with a rustic matte finish, which perfectly matches the watch's polished casing. The watch's numbers are simple Arabic Numerals, which are in line with the watch's straightforward approach.
As far as the hands are concerned, the watch's large central hands are Swiss Super-Luminova ones with a black outline. While the black outline adds sleekness to the design, the hands' luminous centers make the dial stand out more. Longines has kept functionality in mind with this watch as it consists of three sub-dials. While one sub-dial is a 30 minute counter located at the 3 o'clock position, the other 12 hour counter sub-dial is situated at the six o'clock position. Finally, the small continuous running seconds hand sub-dial can be seen at the watch's 9 o'clock position. The placement of the sub-dials and the date window is faultless as they don't make the dial seem congested. All in all, the dial's design is a perfect match with the stainless steel casing of the watch.
The Overall Performance
While some people negate performance when buying luxury watches, someone who has a passion for buying watches realizes the importance of such functions. This watch's movement system is Longines's trademark L688.4 Calibre movement system, one of their best ones.
This automatic movement system is a perfect addition to the otherwise excellently designed watch. The L688.4 offers the Longines Spirit Chronograph L3.8184.108.40.206 a frequency of 25,200 vph, which is better than most luxury watches out there. Simultaneously, the L688.4 also offers the Longines Spirit Chronograph L3.8220.127.116.11 a massive power reserve of 64 hours, which even outclasses some leading brands and their watches' performance. What testifies to the sheer precision and accuracy of this watch is the COSC certification for its chronometer. Concerning the watch's performance, there are not a lot of luxury watches that can compete with the Longines Spirit Chronograph L3.818.104.22.168.
One important feature that protects the watch from being damaged due to unfortunate events and gives more flexibility to it in terms of where you can wear it is water-resistance. While some luxury watches don't consider such a feature, the Longines Spirit Chronograph L3.822.214.171.124 is not one of them. It offers water-resistance of up to 10 bars or 100 meters, which is more than enough to allow you to take a dip in the pool.
