BaselWorld 2011 Preview: LONGINES The Master Collection Retrograde Moon Phases

Thanks to an exclusive new movement, Longines has created a unique watchmaking combination. The Longines Master Collection Retrograde Moon Phases presents a ballet of four dancing retrograde hands. The dial also features two windows, one for the moon-phase, the other for the day/night indicator. Along with the latter two functions and, of course, the time, this watch has a weekday indicator at 12 o’clock, a calendar on the right of the dial, a second time zone with a 24-hour scale on the left and a small seconds hand at 6 o’clock. This exceptional movement is housed in an elegant, classic case.
