Boasting a contemporary spirit, this watch is based on a model dating from 1940.
It keeps indeed its central lines, such as the high bezel that gives it a strong character and reminds the Longines’ models of that time. Longines Heritage 1940 immediately catches the eye through its sleek lines and shaped contours. The circular steel case with a diameter of 38.50 mm houses a self-winding, mechanical movement, the calibre L615 (ETA 2895/2). The lacquered dial is available in white or black and features a railway-track minute ring and 11 Arab numerals. The hands are of blued steel in the white-dial version and rhodium-plated in the black version. And finally, the small seconds and date aperture at 6 o’clock complete the image of Longines Heritage 1940, which is mounted on a black alligator strap.
