Longines Spirit 42mm L3.8188.8.131.52 Review
Being a pioneer of the watch industry, Longines has been making luxury watches for almost two centuries. First founded in 1832, this Swiss watchmaking company's trajectory has only been an upwards one throughout time. Even after being bought by the Swatch Group, Longines has retained its legacy and craft, and you can see it in the gorgeous watches that they design.
Longines has always been a watchmaking company that tries to innovate the already established watchmaking norms, whether through innovating the watch's structure or using new materials. The Longines Spirit 42mm L3.8184.108.40.206 is no different as it is one of Longines' unique designs. Not only is the color scheme of the watch aesthetically pleasing, but it goes well with the overall build of the watch as well.
The watch's exterior is one of its most appealing features. While the case itself is made with polished stainless steel, it smoothly transitions into the strap, made of calfskin leather. The leather itself is also high-quality; its blue color is eye-catching and goes very well with the watch's stainless steel casing.
The approach Longines had with this watch was strictly a luxury one, which is why the bezel is also fixed and not a rotating one for a sporty look. Simultaneously, the watch's buckle is a Tang Buckle, which adds a simple touch to the watch. The watch is built with a screw-in crown and a solid case-back, and its overall design is a perfect blend of casual and luxury. The 42 mm sleek size of the casing further adds to the elegant concept of the watch.
As far as the crystal covering the dial is concerned, Longines has pulled all the stops as they have used sapphire crystal. There is a reason why this crystal is considered to be the best in the watchmaking industry: the scratch-resistance and sturdiness of this crystal are by far the best you can get. Furthermore, by pairing the crystal with an anti-reflective coating, Longines has ensured the protection of the watch's aesthetics and its functionality in bright lights.
When it comes to a watch's aesthetics, the synergy between a dial and the casing is necessary for the watch to truly look beautiful. Longines pulls this off flawlessly with the Longines Spirit 42mm L3.8220.127.116.11 as the dial is a sunburst finish dark blue color, complementing the blue calfskin leather strap of the watch. While the center of the dial is a lighter shade of blue, the index's outline is a darker shade, which gives the dial a gorgeous look. The index itself is in Arabic Numerals, while the watch's hour and minute hands have a silver outline. Since the hour and minute hands are luminous, the silver outline goes exceptionally well with the center's white glow. Not only does this make it easy to check the time in the dark, but it also gives the watch an aesthetic boost. Simultaneously, the numerals are also luminous, which is a unique feature that not many watches have.
Longines' date window and logo are placed perfectly on the watch, making the dial look as eye-catching as possible. The dial alone will make you want to check the time on this watch repeatedly due to the sheer elegance of it.
Naturally, performance is a critical aspect of a luxury watch as they are not all about expensive materials and a classy design. Longines doesn't compromise on this aspect as they have used their own Longines Calibre L888 movement system for the Longines Spirit 42mm L3.818.104.22.168. This movement system gives the watch a frequency of 25,200 vph and a significant power reserve of 64 hours. If the statistics don't make you believe in the watch's precision, then the fact that this automatic chronometer is certified by COSC surely will. Longines has achieved the best they could in this specific class of watches as far as performance is concerned.
One of the standard features of a watch that is a testimony to top-notch watchmaking is its water-resistance. While some people think that a luxury watch doesn't need a high water resistance as it is a dive watch, a watch enthusiast would know its importance. This watch's 10 bar water-resistance will ensure it stays protected even if you drop the watch in a pool or dive in yourself so long as it is below 100 meters in depth.
