10 Years of The Philippine Watch Club

The Philippine Watch Club says their passion for watches is what makes them tick. They offer a space where watch enthusiasts from all areas in the Philippines can share ideas and have in-depth discussions about watch components, complications and innovations. They are marking their 10th anniversary with a special limited edition of the Longines Heritage Military. Each of the 55 pieces of the limited run has a caseback engraved with “Philippine Watch Club 10th Anniversary 2010-2020” in the top half and a series number engraved at 6 o’clock.  The one marked 01/55 is on display at the Longines museum in Switzerland.

Caseback of Longines' special edition of the Heritage Military

Longines’ Heritage Military draws inspiration from an early 1940s military timepiece made specially for the British Royal Air Force. The timepiece they modeled it after belonged to Stanley Turner, a highly-decorated radiotelegraph operator.

Much of the Heritage Military’s look remains faithful to the minimalist design of the original watch. It features the same oversized winding crown and uniquely shaped blued hands. The 38.5mm timepiece displays a silver, opaline dial with faint and tiny black droplets to mimic the oxidation pattern found on the original. No two dials look exactly the same as the black droplets were applied entirely by hand.

Owners have the option to wear a leather or nato watch strap that comes in the same shade. Both straps, as well as the required placement tool, are provided with each timepiece.
