The Longines La Grande Classique, part of the brand’s Elegance line, consists of time-only watches that fit a very classical aesthetic. They feature ultra-thin cases, minimalistic dials without any excessive details, and very thin baton-shaped hour and minute hands.
This example of the La Grand Classique is particularly special due to the fact that it’s cased in solid 18kt yellow gold and powered by an automatic movement rather than quartz. It features a traditionally-sized 36 mm case which measures only 7.5 mm, which is extremely thin for a watch with an automatic movement. Powering the La Grande Classique is the Longines calibre 593 self-winding movement (based on the ETA 2000/1). It beats at 28,800 vibrations per hour and features a power reserve of 40 hours.
The Longines La Grande Classique is the perfect choice for someone who wants a modern wristwatch in solid yellow gold, yet prefers the thinner, more elegant aesthetic of dress watches from decades past. This example is in excellent pre-owned condition, and is sold as a complete set with its original box and papers.
