Longines Heritage Review

The history of The Longines Heritage collection is a history of 187 years of watchmaking mastery. Each watch pulls inspiration from classic designs in trying to pay homage to a rich history of timepieces. What makes the Heritage collection special is in how Longines takes modern watchmaking techniques to classic aviation timepieces. Heritage models are a tribute to the pioneering spirit, meant to go with the pioneers on their travels by air, sea or land. The Longines Heritage collection not only creates incredible pieces that look and feel like owning a piece of history but brings elegance and high function as well to the table. What do we mean by owning a piece of history?
