Longines Master Collection Chronograph Bucherer “Blue Editions”

Longines Master Collection Chronograph Bucherer “Blue Editions”


As the biggest watch retailer in Europe (if not around the world), Bucherer has the ability to request that brands be somewhat adaptable and make explicitly planned watches. Those are named the “ Bucherer Blue Editions ” and, as you’ve presumably speculated (or definitely know), they all offer a similar theme: blue subtleties. Probably the most recent model in this arrangement that comprises different (cool) watches is a moderately open and exquisite chronograph. Meet the Longines Master Collection Chronograph Bucherer Blue Editions.

An rich and open Chronograph

The base for this new watch in the “Blue Editions” arrangement is a notable, rather conventional watch made by similarly customary brand Longines. The Master Collection Chronograph, dispatched in  2005, is a decent, exquisite and proportional watch with a traditional – see too timid – look, accessible in either a dark sunray dial or with a finished brilliant white dial with blued hands. The dial highlights adapted Arabic numerals and leaf-formed hands, for an exquisite, dressy result.

The case, accessible in steel just, measures a sensible 40mm breadth and is matched with either a croc tie or with a steel arm band. The development inside is the type L651, fundamentally a secluded programmed chronograph known as the ETA 2894-1, with 4Hz recurrence, 37 gems and 42-hour power save. Following the work of art/dress watch theme, the showcase is retrained and adjusted, with a bi-compax design – little seconds at 3 o’clock and 30-minute counter at 9 o’clock – just as a date situated at 6 o’clock. The development is obvious through a sapphire caseback and shows perlage, blued screws and Geneva stripes.

Finally, as a rich chronograph, the case is softly-formed and cleaned, with round chrono pushers and a generally flimsy profile. Water obstruction is of 30 meters. Altogether, a pleasant watch that comes up short on a touch of sex-appeal… But that is before Bucherer assumes control over the plan and makes its “Blue Editions” model!

The “Bucherer Blue Editions” theme

In the vein of the GO Senator Excellence, the Breguet Marine or the Oris Chronograph we’ve as of now introduced on MONOCHROME, Bucherer adds here the blue touch to the Longines Master Collection Chronograph. Particulars, extents, development, show and case configuration continue as before as the standard Longines watch, with just the dial and the lash being refreshed. In any case, this makes a universe of a difference.

The dial of the Longines Master Collection Chronograph Bucherer Blue Editions is a two-tone adaptation, with the foundation treated in dim blue with a sunray brushed example. The internal spine for the seconds just as the two sub-counters are done here in silver, appearing differently in relation to the remainder of the dial. The hands and the numerals likewise reliy on this shiny theme. Suprisingly, the watch becomes more contemporary, more easygoing and somewhat bolder than the traditonal white or dark editions, without loosing its rich attributes.

The Longines Master Collection Chronograph Bucherer Blue Editions is worn on a cool and marginally vintage dull earthy colored leather tie with a steel triple security collapsing clasp.
