Longines Tuxedo Classic watch

Longines Heritage Classic Tuxedo Dresses for the Occasion

Swiss watchmaker Longines is releasing a new Heritage Classic timepiece dubbed “Tuxedo” which celebrates the care-free spirit of the late 1940s when people were once again getting dressed up, going out and dancing to jazz bands.

There are two versions available: a three-hand model and a chronograph interpretation. Longines says the two watches were nicknamed “Tuxedo” by collectors due to the colours of their contrasting dials.

The three-hand model features a minimal design within a 38.5mm stainless steel case, and the watch face is protected by scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. The three-hand Tuxedo is powered by the Calibre L893 automatic movement which provides a power reserve of 64 hours. The small seconds counter located at 6 o’clock is slightly off centre, a decision that adds to Tuxedo’s charm. The strap is black leather, and this piece is water-resistant to a depth of 30 metres.

The Longines chronograph Tuxedo is defined by its matte black, opaline and midnight blue colours, along with an expanded range of functions. The real talking point is the inclusion of a tachymeter which is quite rare for a Longines watch. The chronograph model features a 40mm stainless steel case with functions powered by the L895 self-winding movement for a power reserve of 54 hours. Seconds are measured via the small dial at 3 o’clock. The strap is made from black leather, and the chronograph is also water-resistant to a depth of 30 metres.

While the Tuxedo pieces are inspired by a post-war time of celebration one thing’s for certain: you don’t need to like jazz to appreciate the classically-styled watches.

The Longines Heritage Classic Tuxedo three-hand model is priced at AUD$2,950 while the chronograph retails for AUD$4,425. You can find out more including a list of retailers via the Longines website linked below.
