Longines Master Collection Chronograph Moonphase

A timepiece for the werewolves

Have been watching too much of the Underworld series..... vampires, werewolves, hybrids, immortals..... Gosh!!! Now whenever I see a moonphase watch, my first impression is for the werewolves, or Lycans..... hahahaaaaaaa in my shallow understanding who needs a moonphase function to know when is full moon apart from the semi naked hunk in the Twilight Saga. All these thanks to the gorgeous Kate Beckinsale.....

The model for this watch is L2.673.4.78.6. I have never own a Longines Timepieces before and this is the very first. On second thought, the above statement is not entirely true. I was once conned by an Indonesian who sold me a vintage Longines automatic which is faulty beyond resurrection.

Simply stunning..... a complication at reasonable price! What attracts me with this watch is the barleycorn dial and the blue stainless steel hands. The movement is also beautifully polished with a see through back case. Both the front and back glass are sapphire crystals. The movement L678 is based on Valjoux 7751. It is a self winding mechanical chronograph moon phase movement beating at 28'800 vibrations per hours and with power reserve of 48 hours. This watch is water resistant to 3 bar. The stainless steel bracelet with triple safety folding clasp and push-piece opening buckle is quite comfortable to wear. 

Elegance is an attitude.... and I just adopted it..........
