Longines L2.718.104.22.168 description
The Longines Tachymeter Chronograph combines the technical specifications of a tachymeter with the values of Longines, namely tradition, performance and elegance. The circular steel case with a diameter of 41 mm houses the caliber L688, a self-winding mechanical movement with a column-wheel chronograph mechanism exclusively developed for Longines, which can be admired through a transparent case back. The model features a date aperture at 4h30, a small second at 9 o’clock, a 30-minutes counter at 3 o’clock and a 12-hours counter at 6. The white lacquered dial is inspired by the one of a chronograph developed by Longines in 1934 and contrasts perfectly with the black Arabic numerals and the tachymeter scale in blue (1000 m) and red (100 m). Blued steel Breguet hands indicating hours and minutes and an elegant black alligator strap complete the traditional yet contemporary design of this model.
