LONGINES – HERITAGE Military Automatic


The Longines Heritage Military – Military styling and distinctive character

Swiss watchmaker Longines blends history and imagination in the design of this watch, influenced by army aesthetics. Giving a fresh cast to the lines of a dial used regularly in the brand’s early 20th century timepieces, the Longines Heritage Military displays elegant restraint that is resolutely modern. The 12 large Arabic numerals adorning the matt black dial make it easy to tell the time at a glance.

Longines is expanding its Heritage collection with this impressively distinctive watch. The charismatic man who wears the Longines Heritage Military draws many admiring glances to his wrist, secure in the knowledge that its great aesthetics do not come at the cost of reliability. Both qualities are cornerstones of the winged hourglass brand, which draws on a rich legacy with this design, derived from a 1918 watch from the Longines Museum’s historical collection at the company’s Saint-Imier headquarters.

While the Longines Heritage Military echoes the disciplined, robust design of military watches, it also showcases the brand’s watchmaking expertise brilliantly. Its satin-brushed case, complemented with a fluted crown, guarantees a timeless appeal.

The matt black dial is adorned with 12 large painted Arabic numerals coated with Super-LumiNova®. Combined with elegant “Breguet”-type hands and a train track chapter ring, they ensure the dial can be easily read even in conditions of poor visibility.

Citizen Eco-Drive watches use the simplest, yet most technically advanced power generating and storage system in the Watch Manufacturing Industry. A Solar conversion panel and energy cell are the power provider for these Quartz Watches. Eco-Drive’s ability to use light from any source to generate electrical power means that the supply is limitless and free. The absence of any added complex power generating machinery that would require additional upkeep is another big advantage.


The company was established in 1918. The founding fathers selected the name Citizen so it would be “Close to the Hearts of People Everywhere” and soon after adopted the company’s formal name, Citizen Watch Company.

During the last ninety-four years Citizen has expanded its business throughout the world and has achieved recognition as a global brand. The past 30 year period has coincided with the company’s dramatic rise to its current position as the world’s largest watchmaker, a distinction Citizen has held every year since 1986.

Beyond sheer size, Citizen is also recognized as a worldwide leader in advanced technology. From the world’s slimmest LCD watch to the first voice recognition watch and the world’s first professional dive watch with an electronic depth sensor, Citizen’s record of “world firsts” is unmatched.

More recently, Citizen has staked out a new position as the leader in Ecologically Friendly timekeeping with its Eco-Drive collection of light powered watches. With models ranging from dress to sport to professional dive watches, Citizen Eco-Drive runs continuously in any kind of natural or artificial light for a lifetime of use. In 2007, Citizen radio controlled atomic-timekeeping to the Eco-Drive collection, thus developing the most accurate watches in the world. With the presentation of the Eco-Drive Satellite Wave at Baselworld 2011, Citizen has re-affirmed its position as a worldwide leader in timekeeping technology.

What’s next? Stay tuned for the latest in revolutionary technology and advanced styling from Citizen.
