OLD WORLD CHARM

Prestige (Singapore) - - AGENDA -

Fea­tur­ing a small aes­thetic up­date, the lat­est Speed­mas­ter Au­to­matic presents a black and or­ange colour scheme, with a dis­tinc­tive checker­board-like minute track char­ac­ter­is­tic of a 1968 model. Set against its matt black dial are two sub-di­als that have been slightly en­larged from pre­vi­ous ver­sions for added read­abil­ity. The 44.25-mm rac­ing watch is also fit­ted with a pol­ished ceramic bezel and runs on the Mas­ter Chronome­ter-cer­ti­fied cal­i­bre 9900. To cel­e­brate its Flag­ship col­lec­tion’s 60th an­niver­sary, LONGINES de­buts the Flag­ship Her­itage – 60th An­niver­sary 1957-2017, an el­e­gant gent’s piece that bor­rows the aes­thetic codes of clas­sic watch­mak­ing. Equipped with the L609 cal­i­bre, th­ese com­mem­o­ra­tive tick­ers come with a small sec­onds indicator at six o’clock. They are avail­able in steel (1,957 pieces, ref­er­enc­ing the range’s year of launch) and yel­low or rose gold (lim­ited to 60 units each).
