Longines and Hodinkee, two names synonymous with precision and style in the world of horology, have once again joined forces to bring enthusiasts the Limited Edition Longines Spirit Zulu Time x Hodinkee. Following the resounding success of their previous collaboration, The Longines Heritage Classic Limited Edition, this partnership has set its sights on creating the ultimate everyday travel watch, and it’s safe to say they’ve hit the mark.
The star of this collaboration is the Longines Spirit Zulu Time, a 39mm timepiece designed with travel-ready functionality and a mid-century aesthetic in mind. Hodinkee has worked its magic on this watch, resulting in a timepiece that boasts a simplified dial design and full titanium construction, elevating it to a league of its own.
What sets a travel watch apart in today’s tech-savvy world? The answer lies in its ability to offer comfort, accuracy, and the convenience of tracking multiple time zones effortlessly. The Longines Spirit Zulu Time Limited Edition ticks all these boxes and more. Crafted exclusively in grade 5 titanium, it boasts a slim profile, measuring just 13.5mm in thickness and a lug-to-lug distance of 46.7mm.
Under the hood, the watch is powered by Longines’ Swiss-made automatic movement, the L844.4, providing a generous 72-hour power reserve and full local jumping travel functionality. This “flyer” GMT allows wearers to update the watch to a new timezone without resetting the time entirely, making it a perfect companion for frequent travelers.
The dial design, inspired by aviation aesthetics, is not only visually striking but also highly legible, featuring luminous Arabic numerals on a matte grey base. With its screw-down crown and 100 meters of water resistance, this watch is ready for any adventure, ensuring it never has to stay in a hotel safe.
Limited to just 500 pieces, the Limited Edition Longines Spirit Zulu Time x Hodinkee comes with a matching titanium bracelet, adding a touch of classic sporty style to this travel essential. Priced at $3,800, it’s an investment worth every penny for those who value precision, style, and functionality in a travel watch.
