What's Unique About Ultra-Chron Watches?

Longines Ultra-Chron watches stand out for their distinctive blend of technical innovation and sporty design. Although they're modeled after a dive watch, one wouldn't be off the mark in saying that the Ultra-Chron range has subtle racing watch characteristics. If you're after a dedicated dive watch, consider the Hydroconquest collection from Longines. Their hallmark feature lies in high-frequency movements, ensuring unparalleled accuracy.

Furthermore, finding a 300m water resistance at this price point is no easy task and one that the Ultra-Chron steps up to with aplomb! Combined with refined aesthetics, these timepieces exude sophistication and hardiness, boasting classic designs that seamlessly merge with modern sensibilities.

The collection's ability to harmonize cutting-edge technology with enduring style sets it apart, making Longines Ultra-Chron watches an embodiment of modern horological excellence.

Longines Ultra-Chron Watch Movements

Longines Ultra-Chron watches invariably incorporate a mechanical automatic movement, namely the in-house L836, which beats at 36,000 vibrations per hour. Despite their high-revving nature, these movements still boast a surprisingly lengthy power reserve, maintaining a steady pulse for up to 52 hours.

Characterized by their self-winding mechanism powered by the wearer's motion, these movements are both sensitive enough to be practically accurate and hard-wearing enough to relieve any fears that one may have about breakage or damage.

Longines Ultra-Chron Watch Colors

The Longines Ultra-Chron collection offers a timeless palette of classic and contemporary colors to suit various tastes. Predominantly, the collection is made up of timeless hues such as silver, black, and white dials paired with stainless steel or brown leather straps.

These colors exude sophistication and complement the collection's elegant designs. Sporty touches of red and the beige tint provided by luminous inclusions further set the Ultra-Chron range in the world of fast-paced splendor.

Longines Ultra-Chron Watch Materials

Stainless steel is the predominant material for cases and bracelets in the Ultra-Chron range, known for its robustness, corrosion resistance, and classic appearance. This makes total sense when you consider the adventurous underwater heritage of the collection.

Elements such as rhodium and double-coated sapphire crystals adorn the models, imparting durability, scratch resistance, and complete legibility to the Ultra-Chron timepieces.

Of course, each Ultra-Chron watch comes with Super-LumiNova touches that make reading the time in the dark a breeze. The meticulous selection of materials ensures a harmonious balance between functionality, durability, and aesthetic appeal across the collection.
