Introducing The Longines Spirit 42mm Automatic Chronometer Chronograph

Introducing The Longines Spirit 42mm Automatic Chronometer Chronograph

Snappy Take

Earlier this week, we presented to you the three-hand variant of Longines’ new Spirit pilot’s watch and referenced that the new line likewise incorporated a chronograph form. Indeed, here it is. Conveying generally indistinguishable styling to that of its kin, the Longines Spirit Automatic Chronometer Chronograph adheres to a similar configuration while giving a segment wheel-prepared development enveloped by a 42mm steel case. 

Starting Thoughts

As with different models in this new assortment, the styling for the for Spirit Chronograph is tame and subsidiary of numerous other pilot’s watches on the lookout (once more, think Breitling and Bremont). With a date show pressed in at 4:30 and the presence of both “Chronometer” and the Spirit line’s bound together utilization of a five star plan on the dial, the chronograph packs a ton into its dial format. For those pondering, the star logo has been utilized by Longines before and, as indicated by the brand, it means “an improvement of the quality and dependability of the brand’s developments.” Much like with Uber, five stars is the top rating. 

Speaking of the development, Longines has fitted their L688.4 programmed chronograph development. In view of the ETA A08.L11, this development offers a 12-hour chronograph with a section haggle silicon hairspring. Ticking at 4 Hz with COSC certificate and 64 hours of force save, the L688.4 is a solid incentive for the fragment and a strong option in contrast to the more commonplace 7750s. 

Available with a blue, dark, or silver dial, the Spirit Chrono has red accents for the chronograph measure, 100-meters water opposition, and both the primary crown and the date corrector crown (at 10) are of a screw-down sort. Purchasers get the decision of either a cowhide lash or a steel arm band at a similar cost, and the Spirit Chronograph’s case has 22mm lugs. 

For around $500 more than the dazzling BigEye chronograph , the Spirit offers a more present day plan and a current-gen development that should interest a ton of purchasers. With a MSRP of $3,100, while I am not in the least an enthusiast of the date window, the Spirit 42mm Chronometer Chronograph is a pleasantly measured and lively chronograph with a well-spec’d development and an attractive plan (particularly with the silver dial).
