Our Favorite Pieces from Longines’ Master and Record Collections

Last year, Longines’ Record collection generated buzz as the manufacture’s first entirely C.O.S.C-certified line of watches, signaling the brand’s dedication to accurate and reliable timekeeping. It didn’t hurt that the watches came in a variety of classic styles perfect for everyday wear. This year, the range gets a stylish update in 18-carat rose gold, bringing it to a new level of sophistication while maintaining its timeless appeal.

The Master collection presents another milestone for Longines, as the first range to house an annual calendar. Unlike standard calendars, annual calendars can automatically distinguish between months with 30 days and those with 31 days. Watch aficionados have been delighted to find this technically sophisticated complication made available at such reasonable price points.

Here are our picks from both collections:

RECORD L2.820.8.92.2

We love this model’s striking deep blue sunburst dial, which is perfectly complemented by the rose gold sheen of the bezel, dauphin hands, and indexes. A blue alligator strap completes the look. As indicated on the dial, this timepiece is certified as a chronometer by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (C.O.S.C).

RECORD L2.320.5.87.7

One would usually expect the hands to match the rose gold and stainless steel strap, but this model departs from the norm with indicators in Longines blue. The white mother-of-pearl dial and diamond indices give this chronometer a decidedly elegant and feminine appeal.

MASTER ANNUAL CALENDAR L2.910.4.78.3

Distinctive blue hands jump off the silver barleycorn-stamped dial, adding a modern touch to this otherwise vintage-themed watch. The annual calendar is displayed in month and date windows next to the 3 o’clock mark.

MASTER ANNUAL CALENDAR L2.910.4.77.6

A more feminine version of the annual calendar features diamond indexes, rhodium plated hands, and a steel bracelet. As with all of the annual calendars in the collection, this model houses the new automatic L897 caliber, which can be admired through its transparent case back.

MASTER ANNUAL CALENDAR L2.910.4.92.6

This watch features a clean, minimalist design—the bar indices and rhodium-plated hands are complemented by a simple steel bracelet. At the same time, this timepiece stands out with its blue sunray dial.

MASTER ANNUAL CALENDAR L2.910.4.51.7

This watch features a simple, no-frills design with a black barleycorn-stamped dial and rhodium-plated hands. Its automatic movement is housed in a stainless steel 40 mm case, and has a power reserve of 64 hours.

MASTER L2.628.4.92

Last year’s Master collection made a splash with its colored dials, which came in Longines’ signature shade of blue or gray, and with several diameters for both men and women. We love how this model is uncluttered yet eye-catching, with rhodium plated hands and indices that form a subtle contrast with the sunray dial, and a date display at 6 o’clock. The blue alligator strap perfectly complements the watch face as well.

MASTER L2.128.4.97

Diamond indexes go beautifully with this collection’s striking blue dial, lending it a delicate appeal. A transparent case back allows one to view the movement, and the date window is placed at the 3 o’clock mark.
