Pre-Baselworld 2014: The Longines Column-Wheel Single Push-Piece Chronograph

The Longines Column-Wheel Single Push-Piece Chronograph

Inspired by a chronograph developed in the year 1913 Longines will launch this chronograph in three different versions at Baselworld 2014 in March. 

These are the three Longines Column-Wheel Single Push-Piece Chronograph versions…

They are all equipped with the Longines-exclusive, automatic chronograph calibre L.788.2 with a column wheel and a power reserve of 54 hours (= ETA A08.L11 calibre).

The red gold case and the two steel cases have a diameter of 40 mm, they are waterproof up to 30 meters…

  • Very interesting to see this dial design – almost identical to my Longines WWI Officer’s Trench Wrist Watch with 32mm enamel porcelain dial; roman numerals (with red XII); rail track around the outside and swivel lugs with narrow strap. The watch is dated around 1916 and is in remarkably good condition considering age with no cracks in the dial. Great to look at and very comfortable on the wrist. Runs a little fast, but not too bad.

  • Superb balance in all three versions. I wish the gold version had Roman numerals and the clip style lugs as well. The movement is ofcourse an exclusive caliber for Longines by ETA. I appreciate the fact they are so transparent about it. Superb pricing, I have a Weems in Gold that is divine, this novelty seems no different. Buy it to enjoy it!!!

  • nice watch elegant design for longines but the only thing that is not a good idea to put ETA movement on this watch I agree with the rest of the people from comments on this time piece thanks again George from Sydney

  • very nice watch but the movement sucks. I don’t want to see an automatic ETA in such a piece. Time to upgrade Longines and put an in-house manual wind in this kind of watches

    • Bruno, ETA is a movement manufacturer. This movement is developed for and funded by Longines. It is a manufacture movement. Longines did step it up by funding it’s development. Meaning no other swatch group brand can use this exclusive column wheel caliber.

  • They’re nice watches, but unless I missed something, they were actually released early last year (they’re derived from the 180th anniversary monopusher chronograph from 2012).

  • I am amazed of the changes Longines has made in the last couple of years. They really are coming out with very interesting watches. Would you know the prices?
