It is great to see Longines still going strong with their Heritage range and offering such great and beautiful watches at affordable prices. This Heritage 1945 is based on the thin, flat bezeled watches from that era and particularly a 37mm manually wound watch that Ben Clymer of Hodinkee owns. This 40mm automatic offering is definitely larger and more modern than the original watch, it is still true enough to the original and gives that vintage charm we all love. Coming as a full set from February 2019 it has plenty of manufacturing warranty left, sticker still on the back and only real sign of it being worn is in the strap! So overall a great package for this watch if you want to save some money on the retail price!
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as a complete set with box and paperwork, the guarantee card is signed from February 2019 and still has until February 2021 in manufacture warranty. The watch is barely worn with the sticker still on the back, only signs of wear are in the small crease to the strap where the buckle has been tightened. The watch is running great!
This is another brilliant offering from Longines with their Hertiage range. I personally would have preferred to see this watch in a 38mm case at most, but even at 40mm it sits on the wrist well and still has all that vintage charm you would want from a heritage offering.
