Longines is perhaps the brand that I feel most undervalued (not forgetting Oris), but which is preceded by 190 years of heritage.

Today I present my Longines Opposition, a watch from the early 2000's, without a doubt with a very temporary aesthetic with those curved finishes and unidirectional brushing that surely in a few years it will tend to look out of date, however one of my guilty tastes of watchmaking, because when I was still a neophyte I loved two watches in general, those curved ones that I think were called coupole from Rado and this quartz Longines that I was able to get about two years ago at an auction for maybe 160 USD, which was a gift from me to me.

PS: when we talk about a watch with a 20 (19) life, are we already talking about vintage watches?

I kinda like Longines too... I guess... 馃槈聽

Wow that麓s a fantastic collection, In fact, it is my favorite brand and I currently have three very chosen ones and my next one, which will be my maternal-fetal medicine graduation gift, which I am thinking of a master collection moonphase chronograph.

Beautiful collection聽

Love Longines Oposition (has only one p for whatever reason), it's the Y2K watch for me. We should call that vintage? Neo-vintage?

Another fan of the Oposition - really lovely watch and bracelet with plenty of different options at the time in dial colours, automatic / quartz, chronograph - there was even a square one.

nice collection!

Longines has an incredible collection a watches and designs. 聽I don't know what lead you to mention Oris in the same breath. 聽In my opinion Longines offers a watch for everyone and Oris is a lost sole which occasionally offers a nice watch. 聽Longines is undervalued and underappreciated but I don't want their watches to become less affordable either.聽

This chrono speaks to me.

Really nice. 聽Longines is my top 4 when it comes to watch brands that get me excited. 聽I know most people look at high horology like that and I do too, but my top 4 when it comes to pure passion and nothing else are Longgines, Hamilton, Bulova and of course Timex. 聽 Right now I only own 90 Timex watches. 聽lol, but will like to own one of each from those other three.
