SOUNDNESS AND PERFORMANCE
Following on from its first steel versions, the winged-hourglass brand center stages one of its inventions using highly up-to-the-minute titanium. This chronograph takes on a more modern twist.
In just a few months, the Spirit collection has made its mark in the watch scene through charming variations boasting high-performing calibers. One of these is definitely the chronograph equipped with a flyback function. As the end of the year comes around, Longines offers this model a new look with a 42 mm-diameter case crafted in grade 5 titanium. As such, the Spirit Flyback Titanium watch is luxuriously light (93.5 g) and super sturdy. What’s more, this material gifts the watch with extra style. Its gray-hued color with satin-brushed and polished finishes adds a dash of freshness. On top, we discover a bidirectional bezel with its black ceramic insert.
Dial-side, anthracite this time round, the scenography pursues the original time data layout. As such, the small seconds set at 9 o’clock is symmetrically positioned with the 30-minute counter at 3. The hour chapter numerals and the hands are still topped with beige Super-LumiNova®. Short-cycle time measurement and hour and minute displays are driven by the selfwinding L791.4 movement. This device stands out for its performance, with its power reserve of 68 hours, as well as for its accuracy. Its chronometry is certified by the COSC.
The Spirit Flyback Titanium comes complete with two totally different wraparounds, a titanium bracelet attached by a folding clasp and a NATO-type textile strap with a pin buckle. Whichever you choose, you can be sure your timepiece flaunts a chic & sporty look.
