Charm and simplicity

The Longines Heritage 1969 draws its inspiration from a timepiece created in the late 1960s. This model’s reissue now enriches the Longines Heritage collection. With its cushion-shaped steel case and its brushed silvery dial, this unusual watch echoes the essence of the original model. Rose-coloured hands and indexes give it an additional touch of elegance.

Located in Saint-Imier, where the winged hourglass brand had its start in 1832, the Longines Museum is filled with treasures synonymous with the brand’s rich know-how. It is here that the brand draws inspiration from its Historic collection, as a tribute to its long watchmaking tradition. So was born The Longines Heritage 1969, a piece with a vintage design echoing the lines of a watch created in the late 1960s.
