Launched in 2016, the Longines Railroad uses rail as an inspiration for this classic yet modern timepiece. Punctuality is the backbone in the development of a secure and reliable railway service. Just think of standing and waiting for the train. It’s incredibly taxing. At least with this new watch, the wearer will be on time.
At the beginning of the 20th century, Longines watches were worn by the employees of many railway companies in Romania, Serbia, Persia, Canada and the United States.
The Caliber L888.2 powers the steel 40mm case. The automatic winding mechanical movement features a 64-power reserve. The design of the watch is classic and is reminiscent of when the railroad was king. Although that isn't true any more, it is a classic watch. Shiny lacquer black hands and painted Arabic numerals complement the off-white polished dial.
