With New Year’s Eve being just around the corner, there’s another watch that goes in our wish list. The La Grande Classique Quartz de Longines looks beautifully elegant on display that we’ll put it on our wrist especially for the year’s end countdown. Here’s why.
La Grande Classique de Longines was first presented in 1992 in a smaller 24mm or 29mm size. Crafted in steel, the watches are accented with Top Wesselto diamonds.
The first collection of these quartz-powered watches were only offered in an array of soft hues, such as pale pink, sky blue and white, and they featured alluring dials with star patterns.
A powerhouse talent and Oscarwinning British actress, Kate Winslet was exclusively chosen as the face of this classic watch. Her exquisite looks and character represent La Grande Classique in a perfect manner.
The case is made with polished stainless steel with the combination of 100 sparkling diamonds. On the inside, there lays natural mother of pearl dial and 12-diamond hour markers that will brighten the countdown to year’s end.
29 x 4.5
The La Grande Classique de Longines collection perfectly embodies the aesthetic tradition of the Swiss brand, which is known for its winged hourglass logo. The ultra slim watch was specially designed round with 29mm dimension of stainless steel case and 4.5mm thickness.
Featuring a natural mother of pearl polished dial with diamond hour indexes and silver polished hands, it is also commonly known as the L430, quartz calibre. As a fitting salute to heritage, these traits inspire us to never forget our roots.
