Longines present a new piece, the Longines Master Collection Retrograde Moon Phases. If you enjoy a bit of dial action this one has it all - six hands, four of which are slender retrogrades fluttering like flirty blue eyelashes, to these add two apertures for the moonphase and day/night indicators and you have one of the busiest dials unveiled at BaselWorld 2011.
The piece uses a new movement the automatic L701.2 Calibre with 46 hours of power reserve, which for the first time adds a day/night indicator - you'll find it tucked in beneath the retrograde day of the week display at the top. On the right is the calendar, on the left is a 24 hour second time zone with the small seconds retrograde down at the bottom. This abundant array of displays are presented on a barleycorn guillochéd dial which looks particularly sharp in the black dial option.
The Longines Master Collection Retrograde Moon Phases watch features a classically rounded stainless steel case available in two sizes, 41mm or 44mm with brown or black alligator leather strap options.
