Here we have a 2021 Longines Heritage Classic Tuxedo Automatic L2.318.104.22.168 with a 38.5mm polished stainless steel case that gently curves over your wrist with elegant tapered drilled lugs. As part of their Heritage range, you can see the inspiration for the watch from their early sector dial wristwatches and the boom times of the 1920s and 30s when you dressed for a night out in your Tuxedo. A lug-to-lug length of 50mm and a case thickness of 11.5mm ensures a comfortable fit on your wrist, on the right side, a signed crown and the polished smooth bezel hold a domed sapphire crystal AR coated above a black and white dial hence the name “Tuxedo”. Inside the black outer ring, we have an outer minute track with Arabic numerals coated in faux patina Super LumiNova, at 6 o’clock a small second's sub-dial with a concentric circular pattern and clearly printed numerals, elegant sword hands are infilled with the same faux patina Super LumiNova for that vintage aesthetic. At 12 o’clock the Longines motif completes this vintage-inspired timepiece. On the reverse, a screw-down polished case back with the Longines motif engraved in the centre, inside an automatic Longines Cal. L893, 27 jewels, 25,200 beats per hour. The watch comes fitted on its Longines 19mm leather strap with a signed buckle and the watch comes with its Longines presentation box and paperwork.

As always, Longines offers immense value for the design and build quality, the perks of having the gigantic Swatch group behind your brand!
Auguste Agassiz founded Longines in 1832 and is one of the oldest registered watch brands. The Longines factory was opened in 1867 in Saint-Imier Switzerland. From this date, the name Longines was present on their dials and the winged hourglass was engraved onto their movements. After visiting the Universal Exhibition of 1876 in the United States, Longines became pioneers in mechanised production. In 1880 the brand name was filed with the Federal Office of Intellectual Property; later their logo was registered in 1889. Their first wristwatch with a single pusher the calibre 13.33z was introduced in 1913. They became the official supplier of the International Aeronautical Federation in 1919. Lindbergh, the aviator and adventurer, worked with Longines to create the Hour Angle watch in 1927. Their first self-winding calibre 22A was produced in 1945. With continued innovation and technical achievements, Longines became the official timekeeper for Formula one in 1983 for 10 years. They also in 2009 became the official timekeeper for the French Open at Roland Garros. Purchased in 1971 by ‘Ebauches SA’, Swiss watchmakers SSIH who owned Omega, Tissot and Lemania and ASUAG who owned Certina, Endura, Eterna, Hamilton, Longines, Mido and Rado. were merged in 1983 to become the Swatch Group in 1998.
