Longines Spirit Titanium: charm and lightness

The Spirit collection widens

Spirit current collection includes models needles 3, 40 or 42 mm in diameter, but also a chronograph. The dials vary from black to silver, through blue or green, recently released. The bracelets are made of leather or steel, while all housings are steel. But the latter is not entirely true. The new Spirit Titanium has, as its name suggests, a titanium case. A material synonymous with lightness and comfort, with a weight saving of approximately 30% compared to steel. In addition, it offers a very distinctive shade of gray, a bit darker and less brilliant. The show becomes more discreet, even a little more elegant. The Spirit Titanium is available in two diameters: 40 and 42 mm, for the same thickness of 12.2 mm. Two well proportioned templates to suit the vast majority of wrists. And always with a sealing 100m, to guarantee true versatility in everyday life.

Subtle changes, but very successful

The dial of the Longines Spirit Titanium is a subtle variant of that of steel versions. 5 stars are found happily at 6, witness the excellence of Longines in precision competitions and the second hand and the shape index of "diamonds". This dial is distinguished by its beautiful and deep charcoal color, almost black. The texture is sanded in the central portion, and smooth on the border. The various elements of the dial - needles, digital index, logo and stars - are golden, and blend perfectly with the dark gray. The second hand, meanwhile, retains its bright red color on his third. Compared to steel versions, the colors are warmer, softer, with a vintage fully assumed side. The 12 Arabic numerals are applied, like the 5 stars and logo of the brand, giving a true relief to all. We also note the disappearance of the date window at 3 o'clock, which will delight fans of symmetry and minimalism. Longines Spirit Titanium is offered on a fully titanium bracelet, which will certainly please, or on a bracelet in black nylon, for a style more casual and sporty. And to go from one to the other, nothing more simple: two bracelets are equipped with a quick-change system without tools.
