Based in Saint-Imier since 1832, the famous Swiss watchmaker celebrated its 180th anniversary last year and took the opportunity to present commemorative models which are worthy of the brand’s watchmaking expertise. One of the models included The Longines Column-Wheel Single Push-Piece Chronograph in rose-gold and limited to 180 pieces worldwide. For collectors who did not manage to get hold of this exceptional timepiece, it is now available in stainless steel.

With its characteristic single push-piece, The Longines Column-Wheel Single Push-Piece Chronograph is a reminder of the first chronographs produced by Longines from 1878 on. It is closely based on the first wrist chronograph, manufactured by Longines in 1913 and fitted with caliber 13.33Z. The new model uses caliber L788, a column-wheel chronograph movement developed exclusively for Longines which enables the wearer to activate the various chronograph functions – go, stop and reset to zero – by simply pressing on the single push-piece integrated into the crown. The white dial features a bright red “12” in roman numerals, while the moving lugs are part of Longines’ prestigious heritage. This timepiece provides an insight into the brand’s historical commitment to timing and sports.
