Up until now you could obtain one of these timepieces, but with Arabic numerals and lesser sizing options. But, for those that were wishful for alternatives, the wait is over. This collection has always been very successful for Longines and this growing array of selections is a testament to that fact.

Proving once again that somewhere along the middle of the road between a classical and sporty watch, is the way to go. Some people may be able to collect various timepieces, for varying occasions. But, for those with stricter budgets these sophisticated all-purpose watches tend to be crowd-pleasers and these have the numbers to prove it.

The case for these new watches is made of stainless-steel with a transparent case back, which allows to view the inner workings of the movement. And they are available in various diameters: 42, 40, 38.50, 29, and 25.50 mm. With all these options there has to be an appropriate fit for all those interested in this updated Longines model. Equipped with a setting-crown and short wide lugs for a comfy wrist fit. Water-resistance on these watches can reach up to 30 meters (100 feet).

Time is exhibited on either: a sunray blue dial or a grey sunray dial; both with stainless-steel applied Roman numerals, followed by a ring of smaller white minute index markers circling the dial. Although other versions instead of Roman numerals are using: stainless-steel applied hour index markers and another has applied diamonds (no reference available yet). They’ve also all been equipped with rhodium-plated hands and a date aperture at the 3 o’clock position. A simple an effective three hand watch with a date indicator, the horology bare essentials for legibility at a glance.
