Longines have enjoyed a long history of watchmaking at their St Imier-based manufacturing facilities where elegant timepieces come to life from a blend of unique materials and unprecedented mastery. Longines are experts in what they do. They have been developing stylish wristwatches for men and women since 1832 but also create a number of timepieces that can be worn either by the male of the female. In a world where individuals prefer to be recognised for their abilities and talents rather than whether they are male or female - Longines unisex watches fit nicely inside watch collections belonging to those with a passion for Swiss horology and unique manufacture. Bezels that span a comfortable diameter across the wrist merge the lines between a ladies wristwatch and a man’s wristwatch. Girls are opting for the tomboy look and not all men have broad wrists that can pull-off a large and bulky-looking watch, so Longines watches are certainly the manufacturer to be looking at if you are in search of a timepiece that bridges this gap.
As an official UK stockist of unisex Longines watches here at Owen & Robinson, we hope our collections demonstrate the breadth of Longines’ ever-evolving talents in the world of watch manufacturer, whilst communicating values of elegance, performance and reliability. Timepieces from the La Grande Classique watch collection, feature strongly within our unisex Longines range. These designs offer a variety of different coloured dials and a choice between a traditional Roman numeral hour track or a baton index hour ring. Like all timepieces from this collection, unisex La Grande Classique de Longines watches feature pure, spacious dials that go without the need for any fussy decoration or highly-complex features. Longines focussed on the simplicity of time reading when creating this range of watches, developing designs that include two hands – in some cases three.
For many an individual, a straight-forward dial is all that is required for day-to-day timekeeping. This preference is neither defined by a lady or a man since a timepiece like the La Grande Classique watch is valued by entrepreneurs, socialites, style-conscious individuals or those who simply like to travel in style. Designs like the Longines La Grande Classique watch with white Roman numeral dial and an eye-catching bi-colour bracelet, is perfect for those who like to add a touch of sophistication to their everyday attire. The yellow gold flecks of colour seen meandering through the stainless steel links of this bracelet, smarten up formal attire and work well with other pieces of yellow gold jewellery or a pair of gent’s yellow gold cufflinks. The watch is powered by a quartz movement made in Switzerland, which sits inside the robust housing of a stainless steel case integrated with 30 meter water resistant capabilities.
Alternatively the L Grande Classique de Longines unisex watch with a deep blue dial and baton indexes, is perfect for those who want to add a touch of colour to their everyday style, whilst designs with a simple stainless steel mesh-like bracelet are classic and understated for those occasions where an outfit calls for very little detailing.
