6o years ago Longines registered the name "Conquest", now the original typeface appears once again on one of their watch dials, this is the Longines Heritage 1954 - 2014.
For their new collections Longines often look backwards to move forwards, there is vintage-styling aplenty to be found in their portfolio, and when it comes to being sensitive to their original issues, Longines nail it time after time.
Let's get to the nitty gritty - the size. The model which Longines pay tribute to with the Heritage 1954 - 2014 was sized at 35 mm across, so it follows that in order to stay true to the original that this one is also 35 mm across. To some that will be just a bit too dainty, for others authenticity rules - it will remind them of their Daddy's watch and they'll want one even if there is not even a slight glimpse of crown or case to be seen protuding from beneath their tailored cuff. Despite of, or because of its vintage proportions this watch really is another fine additon to the Longines portfolio.
There will be options of steel, yellow gold or rose gold cases with silver sunburst or gilded dials. The steel case is limited to 600 pieces with the exclusivity going to the gold case editions of which only 60 will be made.
Seen the Longines Heritage 1973 Chronograph? Go on, it's a beaut.
