Of course, Hodinkee transforms the classic 19th chromometer model, giving it a stylish, contemporary upgrade. As a result, The Longines Heritage Classic is delivered in a 38.5mm brushed stainless steel case that is attached to a “beads-of-rice” bracelet. As for movement, the timepiece is powered by a modified ETA A31.501, named the L893.4. Here the typical Longines automatic movement has been revamped with a new silicon balance providing the watch with an impressive 72-hour power reserve.
Limited to a total of just 500 units — each of which are individually numbered — the Longines Heritage Classic is being promoted by the brand as a must-have exclusive collector’s piece.
