It fulfills all of the criteria for what a great watch brand should be and possess. There is a Longines watch for everyone, and thanks to the company’s size, it has a large range of watches to choose from. Before we look at some of the best and most popular Longines watches, let’s have a look at the brand’s history to get a better idea of what it’s all about.
Master Collection L2.6126.96.36.199
A variety of popular timepieces are included in the Longines Master Collection. The L2.6188.8.131.52 is a prominent watch that has received positive feedback. A column-level chronograph is included in the watch. The moon phase display is located at 6 o’clock on the watch. At the 12 o’clock position, the day and month are displayed. The brown leather alligator strap adds to the watch’s elegance. It’s waterproof up to 30 meters. It boasts a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.
Longines L3.6184.108.40.206 Sports Legends
Longines Sports Legends L3.6220.127.116.11, a sporty everyday timepiece with dive-inspired features. The spinning bezel that we’re used to seeing is actually positioned inside the dial, so it doesn’t appear like your typical diving watch. Instead, the watch has an internal bi-directional spinning stainless steel bezel that may be used to keep track of the time. Many people like this watch because it is made to be tough and durable, and it has a dive-watch-inspired style. However, rather than focusing solely on sportiness, it is designed to be more sleek and attractive.
The watch has a sapphire crystal on top of a 42mm stainless steel case. Because it’s a dive watch, it has a decent water resistance of 300 meters/1000 feet, so you may use it while diving or swimming. Longines utilizes a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal on top of the casing. The thickness is 13.5mm, so it’s not a massive watch by any means, but it’s essentially a standard-sized dive/sports watch for men.
Longines Master Chronograph Automatic L27594783
This watch is inspired by historic Longines watches and features a traditional chronograph design. While many chronographs are seen as sporty, this one has a more sophisticated and traditional appearance, making it more appropriate for everyday wear as well as formal settings.
Longines is offered in a stainless steel case with a diameter of 42mm and a thickness of 16mm, and it is clearly on the larger side with this size. It’s a delicate balance, but the larger size guarantees that it’s adaptable and appropriate for the everyday look without being overly formal. The watch has a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and is waterproof to 30 meters (100 feet).

Longines HydroConquest Automatic L37424966
The watch features a unidirectional rotating bezel with a blue metal insert and is powered by an automatic Swiss movement. The dial is also blue, and it places a premium on legibility by employing large markers and hands with plenty of luminous material.
