Longines introduced a solid 18K pink gold version of its Record Collection as a part of Baselworld 2018 novelties. Longines Record 18K Pink Gold Reference No. L2.8126.96.36.199 attracts attention with its deep blue dial and solid gold case as well its C.O.S.C. certified movement.
With Heritage models introduced every year, Longines continues to put a smile on Vintage design loving watch aficionados. In the meantime, the well-established brand does not neglect to enrich its contemporary and classic inspired collections with new models. The Record Collection, which the brand designed in classic style and equipped with high-level movements, is among these product groups.
The new model is offered in a solid 18K pink gold case. Measuring 38.5mm., the case is in harmony with today’s trends despite the model’s Dress Watch character. The case wears slightly larger than 38.5mm due to its relatively thick lugs and polished smooth bezel. Equipped with a Longines signed elegant winding crown that matches nicely with the rest of the watch, the case is water resistant to 30 meters.
For the dial, which is one of the most eye-catching parts of the new model, a deep blue tone with a Sun-Ray surface pattern is preferred. The dial, which offers purple and dark blue reflections depending on the light’s angle, is in perfect harmony with the 18K pink gold tone. The date display is located at 3 o’clock on the dial which features baton style indices and sword shape hands as well as a Chronometer text that refers to the movement used.
The other important detail about the new model is its movement. The new model is powered by the C.O.S.C. certified Caliber Ref. L888.4. Based on the ETA A31.L11, self-winding movement beats at a frequency of 25.200vph and offers 64 hours of power reserve when fully wound.
Longines Record 18K Pink Gold Reference No. The L2.8188.8.131.52 is offered on an alligator strap finished in a blue tone that is compatible with dial color. The strap is secured by a Longines signed 18K pink gold folding clasp.
