Longines looks to the elegant evening wear of the 1940s to inspire its latest new Heritage Classic Tuxedo watches. Nicknamed by collectors for its black and white finish, the watches borrow design elements that were popular at the time with a color combo of opaline silver and matte black. The watch is available in two styles: a 40mm chronograph and a 38mm three-hand, both of which feature automatic movements with a 64-hour power reserve for the three-hand and a 54-hour power reserve for the chronograph. Both watches also feature silicon balance springs.
