Longines Spirit Chronograph L3.822.214.171.124 Watch Review
The Longines Company
Longines was first established in 1832 by the Swiss watchmaker Auguste Agassiz. The company moved into mass production by purchasing its first factory in 1867, located in St. Imier, Switzerland. In the years following its establishment, Longines made great strides in luxury watchmaking history, introducing new and improved award-winning innovations, such as the first 20H chronograph movement. Longines has been a subsidiary of the Swiss Swatch Group since the year 1983.
The company has an established name for its esteemed range of luxury, world-class yet affordable watches made only from top-class materials. It still retains the traditional winged hourglass logo, inspired by the early pioneer aviators and explorers, which has been employed for over 120 years, making it the longest-running trademark in the watchmaking business.
The Longines Spirit Chronograph range was introduced as a tribute to the legendary and courageous pioneers of the skies, such as Amelia Earhart, Elinor Smith, Howard Hughes, and Paul-Emile Victor. These early aviators and adventurers set out to conquer the perils of land and sky, equipped with their Longines watches. In the old days before radar, these early pilots had limited equipment and therefore relied on their watches as essential pieces for navigation.
The Longines company created the esteemed Spirit line in honor of their memory and bravery, as an inspiration for modern-day wearers who wish to combine pilot-style tradition with modernity and elegance while using the most up-to-date watchmaking innovations. The Longines Spirit Chronograph series perfectly captures the classic, timeless elegance of days gone by, combined with contemporary good looks.
The Longines Spirit Chronograph L3.8126.96.36.199 men’s watch is a Swiss-made eye-catching chronograph, a stainless steel luxury item. This beautiful timepiece utilizes an automatic movement, 4.2 cm sunray round blue face, and scratch-resistant, sapphire crystal glass with anti-glare coating on both sides of the face. The dial’s baton-shaped hands are large, clear, and luminous, with a large central second-hand timer. The Longines Spirit Chronograph L3 is water-resistant to 10 bars of pressure and has a screw-in crown. The exclusive sapphire crystal face not only provides beauty and color but is also acid-resistant and scratch-resistant while providing a virtually unbreakable face.
The precise construction of this watch plays an essential part in guaranteeing water resistance. During the manufacture, the case must incorporate an opening, a potential entry point for water. As a stopping-up solution for this vulnerable entry point, the winding stem is fitted inside a tube inserted into the case. The crown is then fitted into the tube's thread, and gaskets are fitted. This dramatically enhances the water-resistance of the watch.
The dial has Arabic numerals and has Swiss Super-LumiNova specifics. This ensures that it is non-radioactive, highly resistant to changes in temperature and environmental influences. LumiNova specificity also conforms to REACH’s certificate of compliance and environmental compatibility.
The comfortable, elegant stainless-steel strap has a triple-clasp, easy to use safety catch, and a push-piece opening mechanism. The overall look of this watch is classic, stylish, timeless, and contemporary elegance. The contrast of stainless steel and sapphire blue face is a delightful, eye-catching look. The stainless steel strap allows for sturdiness and durability while retaining the watch's timeless fashion. Stainless steel is striking, modern, and aesthetically pleasing.
Under the Hood
The Longines Spirit Chronograph L3.8188.8.131.52 has the latest automatic movement. Its dial functions include hour, minutes, small seconds at 9 o'clock, and date. The hands are classy, silver-blasted, and large, making the watch easy to read while packing a punch with concise, precision features. The chronograph has a 60 seconds hand, 30 minutes counter at 3 o'clock, and 12 hours counter at 6 o'clock. An L.688.4 movement powers the L3, and this Spirit Chronograph version has precision-installed silicon hair-springs to ensure extreme accuracy and extended lifespan. The watch has a power reserve of approximately 64 hours.
The rounded face bears a chronometer, which is certified by the COSC. Longines decided to have all chronometer watches officially certified by this neutral, independent authority. This has enabled the dials to be stamped with the official chronometer labeling under COSC. The actual COSC certificate can be purchased independently.
The Longines Spirit Chronograph L3.8184.108.40.206 offers an affordable yet luxurious addition for any watch collector. The L3 combines timeless, pilot-like looks with superior, reliable functionality. The Spirit range assures its wearer of the security and luxury from a long tradition of high-class Swiss watchmaking, combined with a contemporary appearance, dependability, and quality.
