Hands-On Longines Column-Wheel Single Push-Piece Chronograph ReviewThe fact Longines decided 26 years ago to halt producing their unique movements and make use of ETA instead, does not mean they just don't have interesting timepieces for 'techies'. Providing CEO Walter von Känel is fully briefed, this is not going to change (when he told us here), they are focusing on affordable main stream replica watches for the large audience. With the smaller group that people fit in with, watch enthusiasts, they have their Heritage collection where they grab back in replica watches from other rich history (since 1832). Since Longines belongs to precisely the same group (Swatch) as ETA, they will have some exclusivity with regard to their brand. So not in-house, but exclusive movements designed for Longines.An illustration of this is the Longines L788 movement that they developed together with ETA (being ETA's caliber A08.L11) and employed in their Longines Column-Wheel Single Push-Piece Chronograph plus some other mono-pusher pieces inside Heritage collection.This Longines Column-Wheel Single Push-Piece reference L2.718.104.22.168 isn't new at all to the collection, but after looking at it maybe once or twice inside flesh I made the decision to request one for the review. So without further ado, let us get started.Longines Column-Wheel Single Push-Piece ChronographThe introduction with the L788 movement had been in 2012 plus the meanwhile, Longines has used it in several of the Heritage collection replica watches.This watch was introduced over a couple of variants (normal lugs, wire lugs, different dials, gold and steel) this year with one exclusive edition, the rose gold version to commemorate the 180th anniversary of Longines next year. Tied to 180 pieces only, needless to say. Our friends from Hodinkee did a nice write-up onto it here.The Longines Column-Wheel Single Push-Piece Chronograph We've when in front of me, could very well be by far the most feminine looking one ladies rolex datejust , having said that i reckon that it had not been particularly developed to be a woman's watch (although women can easily get away with it). The polished case and white lacquered dial make it look like a pocket watch with two soldered wire lugs coupled to the case, which was probably the way was supposed to look.Let's start with a bit of annoyance first. The date window. Come on, who came up with this? It ruins the Roman VI and "breaks" the otherwise beautiful clean dial a significant amount of. Nobody uses a date anyway, while you once check it on the iPhone or computer screen so you do not forget it through out the morning. There is no use for just a date, however i think Longines also wishes to maintain your practical buyer's on-board that has a date window, like they did together with the Longines Legend Diver Date. In cases like this though, I believe that keeping to start dating is more serious as being the dial is a big portion of the attraction of this promotional Pets where the Legend Diver can be seen approximately being a 'tool watch' or divers watch.The stunning blued hands and stunning printing on the dial is merely that for me. Stunning. The classic looking slender hands have precisely the correct length, an issue that seems nothing but logical but some brands still achieve to mess this up. The Roman XII is printed in red. All things are to become observed via the sapphire crystal with several layers of AR coating.Within the right from the case, you will notice simply a crown. This is the mono-pusher piece, so there is small button to make use of to activate and quit the chronograph mechanism. It happens to be, the main attraction with the Longines Column-Wheel Single Push-Piece Chronograph. As you will see on the images above, that is a heavily vintage inspired watch. I could not find 'an original' bit of this type of model, having said that i should also say that I haven't got an incredibly complete library on Longines. My assumption is that there exists a similar piece with the 1910's or 1920's that has a similar appearance. Longines incorporates a rich history on the subject of chronograph replica watches, the caliber 13ZN probably the most popular and sought-after one. Many collectors desire a Longines 13ZN and costs for replica watches your movement are usually serious, but Longines has no promises to execute a revival or rebuild of this movement. They rather 'remember' days gone by with pieces in this way Longines Column-Wheel Single Push-Piece Chronograph .This watch has a steel, polished, case and measures 40mm. So it is a not a huge watch, but probably bigger their chronographs of decades ago. 40mm also causes it to become well suited for ladies to watch, while it is quite a thick watch as you can see.A nice brown alligator strap is connected to the wire lugs and you have to close it which has a pin buckle. I'm a fan of those in truth and prefer it spanning a folding clasp. You may have some other opinion about comfort and safety needless to say.Longines rated it water resistant to a few bar (~30 meters) however i can't imagine you intend to get it near water at any rate. It ought to be proof for an occasional a bit water, but do not make use of it from the shower or even in the children's pool. Don't do that anyway having a watch upon an alligator strap. The reality that an alligator does well in water, does not mean your strap will. Longines' caliber 788(.2) movement is so visible through the sapphire case back. The stainless steel area of the case back provides for a stress on information to your owner. Some is advantageous, nevertheless it mostly isn't. It is just a numbered edition for the 180th anniversary of Longines (not limited) and has now a few of the markings internet marketing a Swiss Made, waterproof, sapphire crystal, metal watch. Markings that might have already been skipped in my opinion, which is of no relevance. Another engravings may be nice certainly, using the model name on the website as the dial does not have this (luckily).Once you have read everything that information, examine the movement. The column-wheel is blued plus the rest of the movement carries a nice optical finish. Once you push the button to get started on, stop or reset the chronograph, all action may be witness upon sides in the watch. The dial providing you with every one of the right information for the elapsed time, the movement displaying some micro-engineering visiting life. This ETA exclusive for Longines incorporates a power reserve of 54 hours and ticks at 28,800 vph.Who is this watch for? Well, my prediction is the fact purists leaves this watch that it is and check out something vintage. There are a variety of vintage Longines chronographs out there and perhaps they are - as written above - quite sought after watches . Those replica watches come at a difference price at the same time. I've found a gold mono-pusher chronograph on Chrono24 that includes a different price (gold, true).Individuals who shouldn't pay money for these collector's items or do not want to get burned by possible frankenreplica watches but just want to have a very solid modern piece that will run trouble free for several years in the future, will be better off spending 4110 Euro (including VAT) just for this new Longines Column-Wheel Single Push-Piece Chronograph a treadmill of the company's littermates through the Longines Heritage collection.For my personal taste, breitling skyracer raven this white lacquered dial version with wire lugs was a bit too feminine and rather choose the versions with straight (normal) lugs. But this may well be a perfect watch to suit your needs if you possibly could cope with that, or your partner or girlfriend.More information via Longines on-line.
