Longines introduces Flagship Heritage 60th Anniversary
Swiss brand Longines has got some news for you: the watchmaking brand is celebrating the 60th anniversary of its first Flagship collection. Congratulations Longines! And there is no better way to celebrate than introducing a brand new timepiece: The Flagship Heritage – 60th Anniversary 1957-2017. The new model is favoured by Longine’s Ambassador of Elegance Kate Winslet.
The new Longine’s Flagship Heritage – 60th Anniversary 1957-2017 is inspired by a Flagship model kept in the Swiss watchmaker’s headquaters and favoured by Longines’ Ambassador of Elegance, Kate Winslet. The limited-edition and numbered models are available in steel, yellow gold or rose gold and display a flagship on the back, as did the original pieces.
