Longines Spirit 42mm L3.8126.96.36.199 Watch Review
The Longines Spirit 42mm L3.8188.8.131.52 is an outstanding timepiece that reflects the historical precedence, innovation, and aesthetics provided by the Longines Spirit Series.
Starting with the case, which is one of the watch's most visible features, the Longines Spirit 42mm L3.8184.108.40.206 sports a stainless steel case of 42 mm, as the name indicates. The case is well-rounded and has an exciting design to the last detail. The watch also features chamfered and highly polished lugs that run along the length of the watch's case. The lugs also reach the bezel, which is polished around the flanks and at the top.
One of the enticing aesthetical decisions made on the case is the contrast added to the lugs against the rest of the case with the horizontal, vertical, and radial brushes. The watch's screw-down crown is the size of a big onion, and well-polished date pusher and pump pushers are found on the watch.
The Longines Spirit 42mm L3.8220.127.116.11 uses an innovative and modern winding movement (L888.4), which features hairsprings made from silicon. This movement mechanism is known to provide extreme precision and increased durability. The caliber used in the timepiece is chronometer tested and certified by the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC).
The winding movement caliber L888.4 powers the three-hand with date model based on an ETA A31.L11 movement. This automatic movement mechanism has a power reserve of 64 hours and drives its hours, minutes, and dates at three.
The Longines Spirit 42mm L3.818.104.22.168 also comes with a sapphire crystal glass with coatings of multiple layers and anti-reflective coatings on the two faces. You also get an engraved case back, which features six screws for security.
This timepiece features a matte black dial featuring the Longines logo and the typical five stars stamp. If you are a fan of Longines timepieces, you would know that these stars are symbols of quality and reliability that Longines is known for. The five stars signify the highest level of quality attainable.
The combination of the black dial and sapphire crystal glass makes for a visually appealing contrast that makes the hour markers on the watch readable and distinctive. Moreover, the Super LumiNOVA feature added to the Arabic numerals on the watch makes it legible even at night time.
The Longines Spirit 42mm L3.822.214.171.124 is fitted with a leather strap spotting a pin buckle clasp type. This strap has a feel of comfort around it, allowing you to feel comfortable with the watch on your wrist. The watch is also water-resistant up to about 100m.
Overall, the aesthetics of this Longines timepiece is exciting and admirable. It plays right into the legendary status of the watchmaker. That is why the timepiece doesn’t feel cheap on your wrist. Rather, it exudes opulence, affluence, and exotic taste.
Finally, the watch is affordable and worth every dollar as it provides comfort, style, and exquisite elegance whenever you have it on. With the indisputable stamp of quality from Longines, the Longines Spirit 42mm L3.8126.96.36.199 will be an excellent addition to your catalog of luxurious timepieces.
Longines has been a popular name in the watchmaking industry since its establishment in 1832 in St. Imier, Switzerland. The company started as a partnership between upcoming Swiss watchmaker Auguste Agassiz and two individuals, Raiguel Jeune and Cie. From that point on, the company grew and came under Francillion, the nephew of Agassiz, who spearheaded the innovative dynamics that gave birth to the Longines we know today.
The brand can stamp its name in the list of reputable watchmakers due to its core values, which are elegance, tradition, and performance. Working within the ambit of these values allowed the company to create collections of timepieces that resonated these values with their customers. Starting with the Longines DolceVita Collection in 1997, which was celebrated for its elegance, Longines created more collections of watches.
