There’s no better present than the gift of time with the Longines DolceVita and Heritage 1918 collections

You can't go wrong with Father Time backing up Saint Nick, so it stands to reason that a good ol' watch makes the ultimate present to bequeath upon your special someone. Balancing practicality and sentimentality to great effect, Longines has two merry-making movements that convey a wealth of warm wishes with every tick within its classic frames. Behold a his and her selection with the sleekly feminine DolceVita and the reinvented Heritage 1918, two watches that'll charm the horophile crowd for both amateurs and veterans alike.

Longines DolceVita
A timeless creation in steel that speaks of old world sophistication and glamour, the DolceVita's irresistible lines perfectly fulfills the criteria of the gifting traditionalist. Refreshed with accents of rose gold for that hint of stylish charm, the aptly named Longines classic takes geometric lines to a new allure with refined details such as a silver-hued flinqué dial that sit amidst Roman numerals, or a black-lacquered model that decorates its watch face with glittering touches in the form of diamond indices. A true ode to luxe, timeless femininity elevated with softly curved planes along the bracelet and powered by a quartz movement, life (and the festive season) is indeed sweet for woman who receives the DolceVita.

Longines Heritage 1918
Gift shopping for men can be a real conundrum, but the Heritage 1918 timepiece has got you sorted even when it comes to the toughest individual to ever grace your friends and family checklist. Inspired by the Swiss maison's storied background and extensive archives, this veritable blast from the past is a century's worth of haute horlogerie condensed into a reissued classic Resembling a pocket watch that was the height of refinement during the turn of the century, Longines gives the antiquated façade a modern spin with a honey-coloured rendition that marks its indexes, hands and straps with a contemporary update. Backed by a mechanical automatic winding L615 calibre beating within its 41mm frame, this is vintage vogue perfectly at home tucked beneath a Christmas tree to surprise its recipient.
