To play the part, you have to look the part. And during the hey-day of jazz clubs, martinis, and after-parties that lasted until daybreak, you absolutely needed to look your best from the time you spent seated at the dinner table to the late nights spent barside. With the Longines Heritage Classic Tuxedo, you’ll wear a vintage-looking timepiece that’s aesthetic is perfect for either occasion. The Heritage Classic Tuxedo looks like it could be an heirloom, passed down from grandparents. In reality, it takes its design styling from watches of the 1940s while bolstering it with modern technology.
The smaller of the two uses a 38.50mm case and features a simple yet elegant design. The stainless steel is offset by black and lightly tanned lettering, giving it the classic aged look of times gone by. The calibre L893 automatic movement gives the first watch in this line a 64-hour power reserve. Meanwhile, the larger of the two uses a 40mm case around the dial which is enhanced by dual chronographs. Longines’ calibre L895 automatic movement provides a 54-hour power reserve to the chronograph model and its 30-minute and 60-second counters, which are nestled in on the dial at 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock.
Each of the watches is styled in a black-and-white color scheme worthy of the Heritage Classic Tuxedo name. Both use a soft, black leather strap against the pristine shine of its stainless steel case for timeless appeal enhanced by modern, state-of-the-art horological engineering brought to you by Longines.
