A superb addition to the Longines heritage collection, the new Heritage 1969 is issued in an eye pleasing cushion shaped case with brushed finish dial. The case is just 36mm x 36mm which adds to the vintage style of the watch. The rounded corner, 4-sided dial’s vertical brush finish is marked with pink gold-plated batons and hands, along with date window (as on the original — see below). Inside is the automatic Longines calibre L888.2 with 64 hour power reserve — essentially an improved ETA 2892. Great piece! Retail price is $2,500.
