Longines Spirit 42mm L3.8184.108.40.206 Watch Review
Compagnie des Montres Longines Francillon S.A. and most commonly called Longines is a high-end brand in Saint-Imier, Switzerland. Longines is an established member of the historic Swiss Swatch Group and its predecessor organization from the early 1980s. The brand became successful in North America and globally and has established itself as a global industry standard. Longines started as a manufacturer of luxury pocket watches but evolved to become a wristwatch company. In its trademark style, Longines has stood the test of time to prevail as one of the pillars of the timepiece industry.
Although time has amassed since the establishment of the brand, Longines has stood the test of time as a reliable industry standard, setting itself apart, as evidenced in its highly trusted quality. The brand's new slogan, "elegance is the attitude," really voices the spirit the brand espouses and is easily seen in this superior and classic piece. The acclaimed slogan, "the world's most honored watch," which was the brand's historic slogan, seems the perfect intro to describe this exceptional piece.
The Outer Body
This luxury watch exudes impeccable class and grace. Those in the market for a watch to wear to work, something to draw compliments at their next trip or conference, or who are primally attracted to unmistakable craftsmanship and great aesthetics will be drawn in by this watch. Its smooth and sleek style exquisitely pairs a modern aesthetic with some of the traditional features that Longines is famous for. The traditional chain link bracelet and hard, folding, adjustable clasp complement the lovely yet simple style of the watch’s round analog face, cased in spectacular sapphire crystal. The materials of the bracelet are from the highest-quality and smoothly polished stainless steel. The watch comes with an aligning stainless steel, solid case back with a fair-sized width of 42mm and a lug width of 22mm. This piece is the perfect size in that it is just big enough to be noticed, but not so much that it is too flashy, over the top, or tacky. These details all combine to produce an immaculate, reliable, and respectable style.
The timepiece design was made with both looks as well as functionality in the designers' imagination. Thus it will be sturdier on the owners' wrists than the aviation-style watches designed for a sportier audience. But, with its beautifully sleek finish, polished stainless steel that runs smoothly down the full length of its case, it adds up for a fit that slips over the arm in a manner as smooth and sleek as silk.
This piece is just what any contemporary executive or fashion-forward thinker should add to their wardrobe to classically complement any sophisticated look with its traditional, high-end materials, including lasting features and modern designs. The necessary outfittings are integrated into this timepiece without sacrificing any allure or quality that Longines has been famous for.
The clear, crisp, yet delicate details of its dial are as functional and easy to read as they could be but still maintain the magnificent aesthetic. The luminous Arabic numerals create a stark and shocking contrast without compromising its elegant and classic beauty. The watch’s functions integrate hours, seconds, minutes, and dates. The dial hands maintain a good length and width for a classic style, maintaining easy readability with the watch’s overall aesthetic.
The stainless steel is polished so thoroughly that it nearly reaches a white tone color, enhancing the piece's classic and elegant, perfectly styled aesthetic. The unparalleled craftsmanship of the scratch-resistant glass, intricately crafted silver dial, and the pale, polished stainless-steel add up for a superior style and an overall enticing model that any connoisseur of luxury Swiss timepieces would be proud to call their own.
Mechanics and Quality
The brand’s long commitment to durability and the most exceptional quality is clearly illustrated in its high-level of water resistance, lasting down to 100 meters. Owners of the piece can relax with the knowledge that there is a full warranty available. The watch has a frequency of 25,200 vph, a base of ETA A31.L11, and a caliber of L888.4. A chronometer watch, it is inspired by the lasting and historical characteristics of the aviation type pieces, without the same kind of sporty look and feel.
