As Martin has noted, it is too easy for many models to get lost at Baselworld amidst the buzz of the newest thing, the shiniest thing, the new model with the biggest marketing team behind him. Sometimes, these under-the-radar releases are not wrist watches.
One of Longines’ 180th anniversary releases is a pocket watch, the yellow gold Longines Lépine 180th Anniversary Limited Edition (180 pieces of course). Fitted with a manually wound mechanical movement, it is a homage to the first pocket watches produced by the brand’s founder, Auguste Agassiz, with a guilloché back cover that opens to reveal an engraved caseback, with the model’s number. The white lacquered dial features black painted roman numerals and blued steel hands.
