Longines has a long and distinguished tradition as well as a worldwide reputation for timepieces with intrinsic quality and style, such as the ones in the Master Collection first launched in 2005. The L2.718.104.22.168 has an elegant functionality with its tastefully designed black dial and transparent caseback crystal. It is powered by Caliber L707, a self-winding movement with 4 retrograde functions and moonphase that beats at 28’800 vibrations per hour, providing a 48-hour power reserve. On its classy dress watch black dial are the essential hour and minutes display, along with retrograde hand displays for day at 12 o’clock, date on the right hand side, second at 6 o’clock and a 24-hour second time zone on the left. Also along the 12 and 6 o’clock are the moonphase and day/night indicators. All the functions you would ever need in a dress watch are niftily bundled in the watch’s 41.mm stainless steel case held secure by a triple-clasped stainless steel bracelet.
