Longines is not the oldest among Swiss watchmakers but it has proven that it is deserving of its stature. Established in 1832, its legacy still lives on as among the most trusted of watch brands, promising both quality in make and refinement. This is evident in the La Grande Classique, made for both men and women. The restrained elegance is not foreign to the brand, but La Grande Classique offers this with a svelte case.

The Longines La Grande Classique is a delight to wear on the wrist; its stainless steel case is thin and light compared to most. That makes it easy to slide under your cuffs, and it won’t be burdensome even if exposed. The understated beauty of the collection is a plus, especially to people who are put off by flashy timepieces. It belies the high quality caliber inside, but anyone who sees the Longines logo can tell straight away that this is not a watch to be taken lightly. We have no complaints about the dial either, as it is crisp and legible, and the space is well-utilized. The straps and bracelets available to the La Grande Classique all lend the watch more class and have good grip on the wrist.
The collection will definitely make those who like bigger watches think twice about buying; the watches are small and svelte, which may make others dismiss this as a ladies’ watch. The water resistance is not anything to write home about either. It can survive perspiration and rain, but should not be subjected to anything more than that.
