Just the other day, Sandra was opining about the changing face of two-tone, and today this fine example of modern bi-colour watches hits the proverbial desk.
The Record collection is Longines’ line of dressy daily wearers that offer a great entry point into some pretty serious mechanical watchmaking. And that’s because every single watch in the Record collection is certified by the Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres, Switzerland’s chronometer testing institute. What this means is that when you slip on your Record, you know it’s keeping an average daily rate of between -4 and +6 seconds. On top of that, it’s tested in five positions and across three temperatures. The movements utilise a silicon balance spring. Long story short, it’s a watch you can rely on.
It’s also a watch that looks good. The men’s model is a 40mm case in steel with a bezel and crown in thick pink gold cap, simple hands and batons on a sunray silver dial. The bracelet definitely ups the dressy factor — it’s a seven-row construction with brushed steel links interspersed with that pink gold cap, for a distinct work-all-day and party-all-night aesthetic.
The women’s model follows the same fundamental form, but pared back to 26mm, and with a mother-of-pearl dial with diamond markers and blued hands.
These Record pieces offer a strong mix of classic form, COSC-certified function and a look that can go from playful to serious in the blink of an eye.
