Longines Column-Wheel Chronograph Classic

Longines Column-Wheel Chronograph Classic

These new creations from Longines come in both a classic and sporty version: The Longines Column-Wheel Chronograph and The Longines Column-Wheel Sports Chronograph. At their heart beats the very exclusive L688.2 column-wheel chronograph movement launched in 2009. Mandated and financed by Longines, ETA developed an exclusive new automatic column-wheel movement for a wrist chronograph which provides an exceptional degree of user comfort. Heir to Longines’ long tradition in timing and the world of sports, The Longines Column-Wheel Chronograph benefits from the latest manufacturing technologies and boasts a construction tailor-made to meet the demands of chronometry.
