Every classic has a story. The Longines Flagship collection's story dates back to 1957, when the Swiss watchmaking brand launched its first ever Flagship watch. Armed with a clean, white dial, thin profile and leather strap, it is arguably one of the most recognisable wristwatches of its time.
Six decades on, Longines celebrates a milestone anniversary of the Flagship collection this year with a new timepiece: the Flagship Heritage - 60th Anniversary 1957-2017. Inspired by a Flagship model from the Longines archives, the commemorative watch bears a minimal and classic dial, complemented by a brown alligator leather strap and a stamped flagship caravel to the back—a signature feature that is also sported by the original timepieces. Available in steel, yellow gold and rose gold, the steel one is limited to 1957 watches, while the gold versions are limited to just 60 watches. It exudes elegance with its brushed silvery dial and 38.5mm case, a size that will appeal to both genders.
