Longines is adopting the brand’s signature blue color for the dials and straps of its new La Grande Classique de Longines collection. The collection is distinguished by its delicate slim profile, which is made possible by the unique construction: the back of the case also serves as the lugs of the strap, a technique that is patented by Longines. The blue sunray dial is available with inlaid stone, inlaid diamond or Roman numeral hour markers with either a blue alligator strap or a stainless-steel bracelet. The case size may be 24, 29, 36 or 37 mm. ETA quartz movement; an automatic ETA movement is available for the 36-mm version. As shown, 24-mm version with 36 Top Wesselton diamonds on the bezel (approx. 0.302 carat): $2,950.
