The Longines Spirit collection has taken a new step forward with timepieces forged from titanium, in homage to the world of aviation where the collection originated. The combination of a strong, sleek aesthetic and state-of-the-art technology gives these new models exceptional character. Proof that the pioneering spirit is still, and always, alive and well at the winged hourglass brand


The Longines Spirit is ushering in the Age of Titanium. Both lighter and more hard-wearing than steel, this alloy, which goes by the name of Grade 5 titanium (titanium-aluminium-vanadium), demonstrates just how true it is that strength is not just a matter of weight. Slightly darker than steel and more matt, it gives these new timepieces a contemporary look.

Aesthetically, the new models in the Longines Spirit collection are distinctive for the finesse of their execution: satin-polished finish on the case and bracelet, sandblasted anthracite dial and satin black flange.

The new Longines Spirit is equipped with an interchangeable titanium bracelet and NATO type nylon strap, the latter having been custom developed using a special weaving technique that reprises the anthracite and black colours of the dial and offers unmatched comfort.

And, of course, the wrist is also where the titanium Longines Spirit proves its worth. Lighter than its steel counterparts, there is however nothing self-effacing about it, and it has a resolutely light, sporty and stylish look. In the dark, its hands and numerals display the almost celestial glow of “Blue Line” Super-Luminova.

Just one of many details celebrating the women and men who are in their element in the sky. The new Longines Spirit thus marks a timeless link between light and shadow, sky and earth, history and innovation.
