Baselworld 2016: Longines & Breguet

By Caroline Wall

March 23, 2016

Baselworld 2016 took place last week in Switzerland from March 17—24. All this week and last, Whitewall has been showcasing highlights from watchmakers and their newest and most novel timepieces. Next up are offerings from Longines and Breguet.

Longines
Swiss brand Longines released its latest model with elegant vintage appeal: the Longines Heritage 1918. Drawing inspiration from the company’s history and the Heritage 1918 combines a nearly century-old aesthetic design with a self-winding calibre, equipped with a 42-hour power reserve. Hints of blued steel, echoing the azure dials of the company’s recent watches, accentuate Arabic numerals in warm yellow lacquer across the classic white face, designed to echo pocket watch dials from the era. Set on a honey-toned alligator strap, this wristwatch is available in two stainless steel cases with a 41mm case for men, and a diamond-lined 38.5mm case for women.

Breguet
241-year-old watchmaker Breguet debuted a wristwatch exemplary of feminine sophistication: the Tradition Dame 7038. A graphic skeleton face, featuring a central floral engraving, encircles a concentric mother-of-pearl dial with blued steel hands. Diamonds line the bezel of the 37mm white gold case, while a sapphire-crystal caseback showcases further elegant movements. The Dame 7038 also features a hand-chamfered “pare-chute” mechanism, designed by Breguet in the 1790s to provide shock protection for the balance wheel. Set on a ruby-red leather strap, this iconic wristwatch combines instrumentation with sensuality for a modern, glamorous look.
