Luxury Timepieces for Women
The Longines PrimaLuna collection is home to timeless and elegant women's watches. There are both stainless steel and two-tone models available. Top models come with an automatic caliber, diamonds, and a mother-of-pearl dial.
Moon-Shaped Women's Watches
Longines introduced the PrimaLuna collection in 2009. These round timepieces represent the Moon and its role as a symbol of the passage of time. Some models take the name even more literally: For example, Longines equips the ref. L126.96.36.199.6 with a moon phase indicator in addition to its standard time display. The PrimaLuna comes in three sizes: 26.5, 30, and 34 mm. You can also choose from stainless steel watches or two-tone editions with an 18-karat rose gold bezel and bracelet middle links. Longines embraces the use of diamonds. Certain versions feature Wesselton diamonds with a total weight of 0.403 carats.
Newer models all have three tempered blue hands, while older versions are available with silver hands. The Longines logo, a winged hourglass, is located just below 12 o'clock. The Swiss luxury watch manufacturer outfits PrimaLuna watches with light silver-colored or mother-of-pearl dials. Select dials even come with Longines' trademark flinqué engraving. This engraving style results in particularly dynamic dials. Depending on the model, you'll find either diamond indices or stamped Roman numerals marking the hours.
When it comes to a power source, Longines turns to the L129, L250, and L263. All three are high-precision quartz calibers with three central hands and a date display at 3 o'clock. They also feature an E.O.L. (end-of-life) indicator that lets you know when it's time to change the battery. Top models, such as the ref. L188.8.131.52.6 , boast the automatic caliber L592 with the same dial layout as the quartz versions.
