The Swiss watchmaking brand Longines again draws inspiration from its multi-faceted heritage and emphasizes its long tradition as a designer of railroad watches. Inspired by a timepiece from the 1960s, The Longines RailRoad mirrors the sober and characteristic aesthetic of this model, as well as its technical characteristics.
Punctuality has been a vital ingredient in the development of a secure and reliable railway service. With this in mind, a precise and good quality timepiece constitutes a must-have piece of equipment. The Longines RailRoad is inspired by a model developed in the 1960s that was worn by railwaymen and fulfilled specific requirements in terms of aesthetics, quality and precision. The letters “RR” (for Rail Road) that were seen on the original dial can also be seen on the current dial. The complimentary indication “280” that was seen on the original dial and referred to the timepiece’s calibre of movement, has been replaced by the inscription “888” on the reissued model – which is nod to the movement that drives the new Longines Railroad.
The Longines RailRoad mirrors the sober and characteristic aesthetics of railway watches. The 40-mm diameter steel case houses a highly reliable L888.2 automatic winding calibre, produced exclusively for Longines. Ensuring excellent readability, the off-white polished dome dial displays an hour circle composed of large black Arabic numerals – with a 0 instead of a 12 – and a 24-hour scale subtly enhanced by black shiny hands. A minute ring enhances the reading of the time.
A clean face and modern outlook dial, the railway watch promises clarity in reading and a precise in-house movement. Creative with its 0 reading position at 12’o clock, Longines makes time a pleasure to keep.
All in all, a collection that epitomes glamour and elegance, absolutely the endearment of Longines’ timeless beauty.
