Old Meets New: The Longines Heritage Classic

Longines Heritage Classic banner

The Heritage collection commemorates Longines’ iconic timepieces by reissuing past models with updated watchmaking techniques and materials. Among the models in the collection is the Longines Heritage Classic, which is a faithful reproduction of a sector dial watch originally issued in 1934.

The Longines 1934 timepiece on the left, and the Longines Heritage Classic on the right.A sector dial is made up of two lines that slice the dial into four equal quarters, or sectors. Although not a common sight today, this design was a common feature on watches during the early 20th century.

Like the original, the sectors on the Longines Heritage Classic are surrounded by a satin-finished silver circle with painted Arabic hour markers at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock. It also maintains small seconds on a subdial above 6 o’clock, and the original Longines logo below 12 o’clock.

Unlike the original, the reissued watch comes with more prominent markers, as well as brightened blue hands. It also comes with slimmer lugs and a slightly bigger stainless steel case measuring 38.5mm.

Driving this timepiece’s functions and endowed with a 64-hour power reserve is the calibre L893, which was especially developed for the timepieces of the Heritage line. This self-winding mechanical movement does not carry the date and enables the small seconds display to be located under the central axis for a design that is even closer to that of the historical pieces.
