Since the first ever sale of a piece from the original Flagship collection in 1957, it has seen lasting success all over the world. Timeless and beautiful, the collection has won over clients past and present  from all over the world. Functionality and style are at the forefront of everything this great Swiss brand designs, and this stunning celebration piece is absolutely no exception.

The Flagship Heritage – 60th Anniversary 1957-2017 collection is a celebration of 60 years of an icon, acting as a symbol of high quality, high precision engineering. Choosing the singular piece to draw inspiration from was no mean feat but when the Longines Ambassador of Elegance Kate Winslet fell in love with one particular design, it was that one that they went with.

Available in steel, yellow gold or rose gold, the numbered timekeepers house an L609 mechanical calibre in their 38.5 mm case. As limited editions, the gold versions are limited to 60 watches while the steel versions are limited to 1957 watches.
