When we first caught wind that Longines was going to be releasing a totally new collection in 2020, we were very excited. They are a brand with a number of strongly performing collections that could easily see them sitting on their haunches, simply tweaking the recipe of their success with different dial variations, but they didn’t. Longines took the far bolder path and, with the launch of their latest Spirit collection, offer fans of the brand a blend of rich aviation heritage and contemporary watchmaking expertise. In this regard, the Longines Spirit collection is a first, drawing inspiration from a breadth of sources that are equally grounded in their past and present success.
The Longines Spirit collection is already well-rounded, offering a range of dial, strap and size options. In total, there are 18 different references within the collection, which are focused on three cores. There are two time-and-date references in both 40mm and 42mm, and there is also a 42mm chronograph for those who prefer complication. All of these watches are available with a black, silver or blue dial, and are also available on either a bracelet or leather strap, completing the range of choices.
Longines Spirit collection price and availability:
The Longines Spirit time-and-date 40mm is AUD$3100 on steel bracelet or leather strap. It is available in a “Prestige” edition, which is AUD$4050 with Longines’ easy-change bracelet system.
The Longines Spirit time-and-date 42mm is AUD$3275 on steel bracelet or leather strap. It is available in a “Prestige” edition, which is AUD$4200 with Longines’ easy-change bracelet system.
