For a modern piece of vintage sophistication, the Longines Pulsometer Chronograph is the watch of choice

In an ode to the grace and class of the old world, Longines is taking us back to the early 20th century with the Pulsometer Chronograph. Exuding an imitable elegance much like its distinguished forerunner, this timepiece is refined luxury that echoes a quaint timelessness.

Formerly a watch used for medical purposes, the original model of the Longines Pulsometer Chronograph was an instrument for measuring heart rates back in the 1920s. Considered a remarkable and invaluable invention of the time, it was carried by medical professionals to accurately and swiftly calculate a patient's heart rate. Retaining this particular characteristic in their re-issue, Longines instils this pulsometric function in perfect tandem with the exceptionally detailed column wheel movement of the new Pulsometer Chronograph.

Bold numerals stand out on a white lacquered dial, and provide a contrasting appearance that enhances the 'Breguet' blue steel hands. Completing this subtle refinement is a distinct single push crown paired with a transparent steel case back. A true testament to Swiss excellence and Longines' watch making expertise, the Pulsometer Chronograph is fine-tuned precision enveloped in classic elegance, tailored for the gentlemen of today.

The Pulsometer Chronograph is available at all Longines boutiques.
