The reference

2022 looks like it’s shaping up to be the year of the rectangular watch. This last year saw two important events that helped people get back on the rectangular watch trend. The first was Jaeger celebrating the 90th anniversary of their legendary Reverso model and the second was the reintroduction of the Tank Must line from Cartier. With so much attention and fanfare around these watches in the last year it should come as no surprise that other brands are getting in on the trend. Just check out the new Oris Rectangular as a perfect example of this. If we were the betting type we would say that this is just the tip of the iceberg and that a bunch of brands will introduce rectangular watches. Jump on the bandwagon while you can and grab this fantastic Longines rectangular watch now.

The Case

The 28 x 33.5 mm stainless steel case is in very good condition. The overall design is simple and elegant. It features vertical brushed finishing on the top and sides of the case with polished bevels. The crown and the caseback are both signed and are correct for the watch.

The Dial and Hands

The silver dial is in great condition. The design, while fairly traditional for a round watch, is quite non-traditional for a round watch but matched with the simple design of the case creates a unique and elegant look. The printed black roman numerals are sharp and match nicely with the simple black hands.
