In order to honour its 175th anniversary, Longines has launched The Longines Master Collection Retrograde watch. Enclosing an ETA calibre specially developed and made exclusively for Longines, The Longines Master Collection Retrograde's functions include a display of the day, set at 12 o'clock, a calendar on the right of the dial, a second time zone on a 24-hour scale to the left and a subsidiary seconds hand at 6 o'clock. These four functions are retrograde: that is, the hands indicating the information instantly fly back to regain their starting position once they have reached the end of their travel.


  • Calibers: Self-winding mechanical movement, caliber L698 (ETA A07.L21); 16½ lines, 25 jewels, 28,800 vibrations per hour; Power reserve of 46 hours
  • Functions Hours and minutes; 4 retrograde functions: Day, date, seconds and second time zone on a 24-hour scale
  • Cases Round, stainless steel, diameter 41 mm and 44 mm; Transparent sapphire crystal case back
  • Dials Silver-finished stamped "barleycorn", 11 Arabic numerals and black painted minute track
  • Hands 6 blued steel hands
  • Water-resistance To 30 meters (~ 100 feet)
  • Scratch-resistant sapphire
  • MSRP: $4995 CHF or $6500 SGD


On my wish list?

YES! Definately. With 4X retrograde on the dial, this would make a very lovely dress watch. I need a watch with GMT function and the 2nd time zone on this baby will fit nicely. At the list price of 6.5K, I surely need to save up for a long time before this beauty lands in my watch case. Money mouth
