Neumond – die Longines Master Moonphase

The Master collection has been a staple in Longines’ catalogue for some time, epitomising the sort of casual elegance for which the bramd is so well known. The latest member of this family — the Longines Master Moonphase — continues to offer the strong combination of timeless style and well-integrated small complications that we saw last year with the clever Annual Calendar model. This time around the additional functionality is taking more of a romantic bent — in the form of a moon phase and pointer date combination.

Before we dial in on the complication, let’s take a look at the overall picture. The new Longines Master Moonphase models are offered in either 40 or 42mm cases, with a range of dials — black or silver barleycorn, a fine textured pattern that is a hallmark of the Master line, and this version, in a blue sunray finish. This version is also the larger 42mm version with restrained applied baton markers (the smaller blue offering adds some top Wesselton diamond hour markers into the mix, if you’re looking for a bit of bling).

The combination of classical case shape, versatile modern case size and on trend blue dial treatment add up to a watch that has a lot going for it already, especially factoring in the overall quality of Longines’ watches in terms of movement and construction. That new moon though, that really adds the charm. The moonphase, while not being particularly practical in the day-to-day sense, one of the most charming complications, intrinsically poetic in a way that works with that shimmering blue. And, if you really need to be bogged down in the mundane-ness of the daily, there’s a subtle date display circumnavigating the moon phase as well. A new movement, developed exclusively for Longines, called the L899 Calibre, powers all this. In addition to the moon display, it offers a healthy 64 hours of power, and is visible through the sapphire caseback.
