The Longines Master Collection Retrograde in Rose Gold


In order to honour its 175th anniversary, Longines has launched last year a timepiece bearing reflecting its horological heritage: This year the enhanced model of The Longines Master Collection Retrograde is also proposed in a 18 carat rose gold version. These watches, enclosing an automatic mechanical calibre developed especially for Longines, become the flagship model of a collection devoted to highlighting the horological traditions of the brand.

Over the years, Longines has dedicated numerous efforts to perfecting the mechanical measurement of time. A creator of horological movements, the Saint-Imier-based firm has nevertheless also assured that a touch of added refinement always forms a part of its creations. Longines has always regarded elegance as being the fundamental underlying principle in both the arrangement of the watch calibre and in the aesthetics of the final watch. Faithful to the 175 years of its watchmaking tradition, Longines has today realised a synthesis between its technical and aesthetic heritage in the creation of a new flagship timepiece representing its collection of horological tradition: The Longines Master Collection Retrograde.

With 16 1/2 lines in diameter, 25 jewels and a 28,800 vibrations per hour beat, this first-class movement possesses more than enough resources to keep this retrograde model indicating the day, date, seconds and a second time zone on a 24-hour scale running smoothly.

The Longines Master Collection Retrograde forms part of a collection of sober, elegant timepieces, offering retrograde functions (day, date, seconds, second time zone on a 24-hour scale) in a movement with automatic rewinding,

The Longines Master Collection Retrograde combines a mechanical horological complication with simple usage. Apart from showing the time, its functions include a display of the day, set at 12 o'clock, a calendar on the right of the dial, a second time zone on a 24-hour scale to the left and a subsidiary seconds hand at 6 o'clock. These four functions are retrograde: that is, the hands indicating the information instantly fly back to regain their starting position once they have reached the end of their travel.
