Longines Master Series: The Moon on the Wrist
Elegance, individuality and purity are the pillars of the Longines Masters collection, for those who love extraordinary
When pure feminine elegance meets the complex world of watchmaking, a unique alchemy is produced. The energy generated is cyclical and recurring, and is a source of inspiration for the designers and watchmakers of the Winged Hourglass brand, who hope to expand the Longines Masters collection with a feminine and technical work.
The case now has a diameter of 34 mm, with a choice of different colored straps (red, blue, taupe) or stainless steel bracelets, designed to hang elegantly and comfortably. You might think elegant and minimal…but hidden in this timepiece are the moon phase display and date hand at 6 o’clock. The addition of this complication is very subtle and requires hard work to ensure the harmonious proportions of the case.
It can be observed through the sapphire glass that the unique L899.5 automatic movement is equipped with a silicon balance spring, which is light in weight, non-magnetic, wear-resistant, stainless, and is not affected by thermal expansion. The timepiece driven by this movement has a 5-year warranty, which is proof of reliability.
On the visible side, the mother-of-pearl dial rivals the diamond hour markers in subtleties. It is also available in Sunlight Blue, and purists will appreciate the classic and unmistakable silver “barley” pattern, which is the symbol of the Longines Master Series.
These new models aspire to wear wrists for women with strong will and strong personality. It is a real privilege to be able to provide her with the moon. This requires a heart full of excellent technology, beating the rhythm of elegance and femininity in the purest watchmaking tradition.

It disappeared as fast as the passengers in the airport. But watches with two or more time zones have recovered from mandatory vacation
This is a bit obvious. When people are not traveling, they do not want to buy watches designed for travel. Because after all, this is the idea behind multi-time zone watches, isn’t it? Well, not exactly. Needing to know the time elsewhere does not mean you have to be there. Just talking to someone on the other side of the earth needs to do this. This requirement will only become stronger as we move heavily to video conferencing in the past 18 months. When you talk to three people, one in Miami, one in Milan, and one in Singapore, how do you know which one is going to bed and which one is going to drink the first cup of coffee of the day?
Despite this, watch brands believe that this type of watch has (temporarily) lost its target audience. They were not completely wrong, because for a while, all watches lost their audience. But when demand picks up, with the lifting of blockades and curfews, international observations are not worried. Until recently.
First, let us mention those who have the courage to go against the current and desperately launch GMT timepieces. Chief among them is Chopin. They released a black ceramic titanium version of LUC Time Traveller One. This is a 250 piece run, but it is still running! In addition, Grand Seiko did not stop at making only one GMT work. They made several, including this one with a beautifully textured dial, which is a specialty product of a Japanese manufacturer.
Then the second wave of new watches arrived, and the watches regained their appeal and popularity. This is where Bulgari comes in, because they often do it now. The Octo Roma Worldtimer is the first new watch of this type, and it was released in as long as 18 months… Usually the busy dial is used in conjunction with the world time, which looks very light. In terms of graphics, Greubel Forsey will release the final version of GMT Earth in titanium.
The last release worth mentioning was the latest version of Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda Hémisphères. The brand is in full overhaul mode as it celebrates its 25th anniversary. It tends to be more elegant, leaner and more unique. Its pine cone guilloche pattern, clever asymmetry and clever watchmaking structure make this watch unique. It is one of the rare GMT timepieces with fully independent hour and minute functions. The latter is very useful for people traveling to countries whose time zone is not the same minute as UTC+0, and for more direct and intuitive reading.
