Introducing The Longines Heritage Military Marine Nationale
Following similar way of motivation as models like a year ago’s Heritage Military 1938 , Longines has reported another and extremely attractive version to its Heritage arrangement in the new Heritage Military Marine Nationale. With a velvety without date dial, blued steel hands, and a bigger than-vintage-yet modest case, this new Longines may make them search for a French association with call your own.
Measuring 38.5mm wide, the Heritage Military Marine Nationale is a modernization of a plan that the brand created for the French Navy after World War II. While the first reference 5774 (compared in the picture underneath) was nearer to 33mm in size and utilized a hand-wound 12.68N Longines development, it’s not difficult to see where Longines got the motivation. Old or new, the dial records just the brand name and “Fab. Suisse” (Fab for “Fabrique”) – “Swiss made” but with French intentions.
In a world before the beginning of plunge watches, this is the thing that the French Navy would have utilized for water obligations, and the 5774 offered a water-safe plan with solid readability. Quick forward approximately 70 years, and the new Heritage Military Marine Nationale offers 30-meters water obstruction, an enemy of intelligent precious stone, and a programmed development, all in a generally comparable form.
Featuring a date-less form of the Longines L888.5 programmed development, the Heritage Military Marine Nationale has a force hold of 64 hours. With regards to its set of experiences, this Longines has a strong steel caseback and bored drags, however the 19mm haul width isn’t ideal for those of us with tie substantial lifestyles.
While I believe that, given the first model’s amphibian applications, it would have been ideal to see more like 100m water opposition, there’s surely no contending that the Heritage Military Marine Nationale is a truly gorgeous and clear plan from Longines. Also, the consideration of one of the company’s most current developments alongside the sensible knock up to 38.5mm guarantees an insightful and simple wearing reconsidering of a model from the brand’s extensive past.
Fitted to a cognac earthy colored cowhide tie, the Longines Heritage Military Marine Nationale conveys a retail cost of $2,000 and seems to be another solid expansion to Longines’ developing line of vintage-roused watches.
