Believe it or not, somehow there are just 23 short days left until Christmas, and if you haven’t bought your presents yet … you’re in a bit of strife.
Thankfully, however, if that special someone in your life is fond of a timepiece or two, then Longines has got you covered with a great many different tool watches for any occasion.
With this in mind, we thought we’d take a close look at three distinct wristwatches that each serve a handy and unique purpose, and maybe one of them will be right for you.
Longines Legend Diver L3.7220.127.116.11
We’re very fortunate Down Under, because unlike a fair chunk of the rest of the world, our Christmases usually have the same thing in common from one year to the next – they’re complete scorchers. Because of this warm weather, it’s fair to say that quite a few of us will be spending time at the beach over the coming holidays. With this in mind, we can’t think of many better watches for the warmer months than this all-black Longines Legend Diver. Apart from the blacked-out PVD treatment making this watch a serious looker, the Legend Diver range is one of our favourite amphibious timepieces, thanks to its vintage aesthetics, prominent 42mm size and 300 metres of water resistance. The Longines Legend Diver L3.718.104.22.168 has a recommended retail price of $3725 and you can purchase it by clicking here.
Longines Conquest V.H.P. GMT L3.722.214.171.124
If there’s one other thing us Aussies are fond of doing between December and January … or any other time, really, it’s travelling. And this Conquest V.H.P. GMT may well be the perfect companion for when the passport and suitcases come out to play. For those who don’t know, V.H.P. stands for “very high precision”, and this watch is mighty when it comes to timekeeping accuracy, thanks to a quartz movement that’s accurate to +/- 5 seconds per year. It also features a GMT complication with a revolutionary “flash setting” that allows you to set different time zones through connecting the watch to your phone via an app. The Longines Conquest V.H.P. GMT L3.7126.96.36.199 has a recommended retail price of $1875 and you can purchase it by clicking here.
Longines Column-Wheel Single Push-Piece Pulsometer Chronograph L2.801.4.23.2
The perennial mantra of January 1 is, unquestionably, “new year, new me”. What results is a great many people going on a full-bore health kick … that lasts about two weeks. In those 14 days, though, exercise will play an important part in quite a few people’s lives, and when you’re exercising, you need to keep an eye on your heart rate. That’s where this gorgeous Pulsometer Chronograph comes in, because in addition to being a very handsome timepiece, it also has a pulsation dial that allows the owner to measure their heart rate via the chronograph complication, which is an exceedingly handy feature and one that not too many chronograph-equipped wristwatches come with these days. The Longines Column-Wheel Single Push-Piece Pulsometer Chronograph L2.801.4.23.2 has a recommended retail price of $5800 and you can purchase it by hitting this link.
