Description
The Longines Master Collection L2.773.4.78.3 is a gorgeous watch; everything about it feels elegant and premium, save for one tiny detail. The colors on the dial play with each other beautifully, and the functions complement rather than overpower, ensuring its legibility. It is definitely a catch even without considering the price.

We’re less dependent on watches than we’ve ever been, with all the information we need easily accessible through a few taps or clicks. And yet, we can’t help but be charmed by watches, which are results of a centuries-long tradition and a testament to what humans could do with teeny tiny components. It’s even more impressive when we come across a timepiece that is flawlessly done and features more than just time telling. Knowing the phases of the moon is not bound to make that much of an impression, but it’s a different thing when you can do so through the machine ticking on your wrist, and all the while being gorgeous, too.

The Master Collection L2.773.4.78.3 is one hell of a watch to show off. It’s not just any watch—it’s also a moonphase and a chronograph in one. It comes from Longines which has long established itself as more than your average Swiss luxury watch, while offering a competitive price. There’s no use hiding this under your sleeve; it’s a creation that deserves attention.

Specifications:

  • Movement: Swiss automatic
  • Caliber: ETA-Valjoux Caliber 7751
  • Power reserve: 46h
  • Case material: stainless steel
  • Case diameter: 42mm
  • Case thickness: 14.5mm
  • Glass: sapphire crystal, both sides
  • Water resistance: 30m/100ft
  • Functions: moonphase, hour, minute, second, month, date, day, chronograph, GMT, second time zone

Pros

The Master Collection is offered in two sizes, the L2.773.4.78.3 taking on the larger at 42mm. This gives the dial more breathing space which it needs because of the functions it is offering. If you fear scratching this beauty, then that proves to be unfounded because the watch features sapphire crystal on both sides; you can see the movement on the caseback in case you’re interested. Despite the number of details on the dial, it seems rather beautiful, and the choice of colors is lauded. The blues contrast nicely with the silver, and together is an elegant combination; it’s even mesmerizing when reflecting light. It is also legible, and that’s not something that can be said for every watch that features a moonphase. Made to last, the L2.773.4.78.3 is offered on both stainless steel and leather, but your choice won’t affect the price the same way that it would others.

Cons

While we’ve already established that the Longines Master Collection L2.773.4.78.3 is a premium-looking watch, the quality doesn’t seem to extend to its strap. It feels subpar with the rest of it, although it performs as expected. Because of this being a moonphase and the chronograph, the dial is understandably filled with more details than your ordinary piece, and that could easily overwhelm and is not the most intuitive for those unfamiliar with the craft. The case is large at 42mm although the dial looks more balanced at its size, and the back feels jammed in with more text than what is tasteful.
