The Longines Heritage 1945 is an expression of the undying popularity of revival watches: Longines in particular seems to have an inexhaustible archive of vintage timepieces from which to select its re-editions. This piece is delightful for its light copper-hued dial with brushed finish, and an appearance hallmarked by the sense of space created by the small continuous seconds subdial, the long hands on a slightly domed dial, and the printed Arabic numerals.
The 40-mm steel case has a leather strap artfully treated to enhance the aged nubuck look. Water resistance is 3 bar, 30 metres. It is slightly thicker than the original, which was smaller and had a hand-wound movement. The new piece is powered by the self-winding L609.3 movement (2895/2), made by ETA which is part of the Swatch Group that also owns Longines. It provides a power reserve of 42 hours.
The Longines Heritage 1945 is reference L4.8188.8.131.52 or L4.8184.108.40.206, I think that the only difference is the strap length. Price of both is €1,750. Further information from the Longines website. In the photo below, the caseback, which has a vintage winged hour logo, with the company name Longines EFCo, an abbreviation referring to company founder Ernest Francillon (born in July 1834, died in April 1900).
