Since 1832 Longines have been manufacturing beautiful timepieces powered by Swiss precision. These sophisticated timepieces are developed to accompany the lady or gent’s wrist to all those extra special occasions in life, be that a wedding, an important interview, a business trip overseas or a luxury vacation. Longines use an exclusive blend of high-grade materials to ensure each masterpiece promises longevity upon the wrist, not to mention accuracy. These materials include the likes of yellow gold PVD coated surfaces which add a warming and traditional edge to sophisticated attire, be that a dinner suit or something a little more relaxed for wearing during the daytime.
Yellow gold PVD Longines watches are developed by applying a coating to the surface of the watch. This luxury finish not only looks appealing against a smart suit or such like, it can also help to prolong the beauty of a watch as well as add a slightly personalized touch to the design. It allows for Longines lovers to choose their favourite model in their preferred finish for matching with pieces of gold jewellery or a sleek pair of cufflinks for example.
PVD which stands for physical vapour deposition, provides classic timepieces with a customized and modern look whether that be of the black carbon type, the yellow gold type or the rose gold type. The PVD process applies and bonds a metal compound to the base metal of the watch. The base metal which, in most models, consists of titanium or stainless steel receives this deposited layer upon its surface through condensation of vapour in a high temperature environment. The increasingly popular yellow gold surface finish is a desired look among watch lovers, let alone Longines collectors. The vintage and retro-inspired look has never been more appealing. Young males and females are in search of a timepiece that cuts it as an accurate timepiece technically, but brings an oldie-worldy vibe to the wrist.
Yellow gold Longines watches from collections like the La Grande Classique range are a popular choice when it comes to finding something classic yet versatile for looking smart no matter where the evening ends. The dials of these watches are easy to read and have been adorned with crisp black Roman numeral hour indexes to match the slender profile of the central hands. The 24mm Longines La Grande Classique watch with a white dial features the famous winged hourglass logo just underneath the 12 o’clock location, accompanied with the “Longines” lettering – a stamp of authenticity and quality craftmanship. A bi-colour bracelet made from stainless steel and yellow gold looks smart at all times.
The all-yellow gold Longines La Grande Classique watch with 24mm white dial is powered by a quartz movement which sits inside a 30 meter water resistant stainless steel case coated with warming yellow gold finishes. The sealed case back has been engraved with the individual watch product number and manufacturing code, and attaches to a yellow gold PVD coated link bracelet which secures to the lady’s wrist with a triple folding security clasp and push-piece opening mechanism.
