We acquainted with you the Longines Spirit assortment last June, a significant new assortment for the brand from Saint-Imier. Today, we go active with the three-gave Longines Spirit L3.810.4.53.0.
If you’d like some more foundation data on the Longines Spirit assortment, if it’s not too much trouble, click here for a recap . This survey is about the actual watch, what it looks like on the wrist, and essentially what you’ll get for your well deserved cash. Right away, let’s have a more intensive gander at the “Flieger” from Saint-Imier.
Longines Spirit L3.810.4.53.0
The new Longines Spirit assortment comprises of various varieties. Other than a Longines Spirit form with a chronograph, the three-hander comes in both 40mm and 42mm. I have the 40mm variant on my wrist for this survey, on a calfskin tie. What’s more, I picked the model with the matte dark dial. Other dial tones to browse are sun-beam blue and grained silver, yet I picked the matte dark since it is, as far as I might be concerned, the most exemplary “Flieger” look.
Although Longines is quick to help us to remember aeronautics pioneers while presenting this watch (for example Amelia Earhart), the motivation for the plan is clear. The Longines Spirit is a pilot’s watch. Or then again, at any rate, it depends on the pilot watches of the past. Huge Arabic numerals, a focal second hand, and a larger than usual case all component. Likewise valuable for pilots who use gloves and still utilize their watch as the main instrument installed (think about this while taking other factors into consideration, please), a major crown. Furthermore, that’s the main thing I saw when putting this Longines Spirit L3.810.4.53.0 on my wrist. The crown doesn’t have an enormous breadth per se, however it stands out a lot. Likewise for non-pilots without gloves, it is not difficult to hold when setting the watch.
Matte dark dial
If you truly need to go full pilot with this watch, I would recommend settling on the matte dark dial on a cowhide lash. However, in the event that you simply like the vibe of the pilot’s watches and need something more present day and flexible, the sun-beam blue dial rendition is certifiably not a terrible decision at all.
The dial has two levels. One is the bigger focal part, yet you will likewise locate a raised external part with “minuterie” (minute track) imprinted on there. At that point, there’s a little edge between the two layers and at consistently marker, you will discover a precious stone molded lume plot. Looking close, you will locate that the upper portion of the jewel shape has been removed of the raised moment track. That’s a decent touch. Subtleties of this nature add profundity and subtlety to a generally basic plan. In the event that you spot them, it is likely your appreciation for this piece will in a split second soar.
Applied and Super-LumiNova filled Arabic hour markers are on the middle dial. There are perfect, fresh, and straightforward. The lume guarantees incredible clarity in low-light conditions. Furthermore, the numerals, wordmark, logo, and “automatic” text are pleasantly adjusted by the “five-star” chronometer rating possessing the lower half of the dial.
The five applied stars on the dial of the Longines Spirit are a significant uncommon touch. This is something from Longines’ legacy, as these five stars showed the great and dependability of its developments. I will return to that later. Underneath the five stars, the confirmed confirmation that the development is to be sure dependable and precise. “Chronometer” must be utilized if a development has for sure been affirmed by COSC, which gives the assurance that it performs between – 4 and +6 seconds overall, per day.
The chronometer confirmed development inside the Longines Spirit is the type L888.4. This is an ETA base development (type A31.L11) however only accomplished for Longines. Type A31.L11 got from the popular type 2892-A2, which has been utilized in such countless watches from large brands.
This specific rendition has a beat pace of 25,200vph (expanding the force save to 64 hours) and is furnished with a silicon balance spring. Longines type L888.4 is likewise utilized for their Record assortment. The time and date is worked by the enormous crown, which you’ll need to unscrew first.
Longines Spirit on the wrist
A watch can have intriguing details and an appealing sticker price, yet the truth will eventually come out. So when putting the Longines Spirit watches on the wrist, there are a couple of things that came to mind.
Longines accomplished an exceptionally spotless plan, consistent with a pilot’s watch. It has a delightful smooth 40mm case with long and sharp drags and a thickness of 12.2mm. Subsequently, it was truly wearable on my 19cm wrist. In the event that you have enormous wrists, there’s the 42mm distance across variant for you. As said previously, the dial has a great deal of unobtrusive plan subtleties, yet stays truly lucid. Huge hands, huge Arabic numerals, and a focal seconds hand with a red tip to make it somewhat fun loving are the champion highlights. I might have lived without a date (as usual), and the Arabic “3” has tragically been forfeited for the date opening. All things considered, I would prefer to have it this route than seeing the date crushed somewhere in the range of 3 and 4 o’clock.
The adaptation of the Longines Spirit that I have here, comes with the earthy colored calf cowhide tie. The carry width is 21mm, so you can likewise trade with another cowhide lash (when you lean toward an alternate tone) or NATO tie without issues. The cowhide lash is thick yet comfortable. A marked clasp guarantees it waits during the day. For the Prestige rendition, there is a cowhide Nato lash notwithstanding the wristband and calfskin strap.
Price and accessibility of the Longines Spirit
I end up discovering this Longines Spirit an extraordinary looking pilot’s watch, and the Spirit has immediately become one of my number one assortments. I likewise love their Heritage models, yet in their cutting edge range, the Spirit is the one for me.
The cost of the Longines Spirit L3.810.4.53.0 is €2,040, including deals charge. There’s additionally a “prestige edition” (€2,650) which incorporates both a tie and arm band, with the Longines exchangeable framework, so you can without much of a stretch trade them. It is not difficult to eliminate it yourself, without gambling harm to the case or arm band. Likewise, Longines reported yesterday that all watches furnished with the silicon offset spring will come with a global guarantee of five years.
