Longines Master Collection Review

Longines Master Collection Watch

  The Longines Master Collection Power Reserve L2.666.4.78.3 is knock out! This is one of the best looking affordable Swiss automatic dress watches. Classic Longines styling brings the L2.666.4.78.3 to life with some nice updates. 
  Specifically, a new larger 42mm case, this opens the dial up nicely. The date window is very understated in a good way, tucked subtly into the 3 o’clock position. This Master Collection uses Longines self winding Swiss automatic L602 movement, visible through the skeleton case back. The absolute best feature of this watch is the power reserve indicator. A power reserve indicator is cool by itself, letting the wearer know how much power the watch has stored up in reserve. This power reserve indicator aesthetically flows with the watch almost seamlessly. The blued hands give a nice “pop” off of the silver dial. This Master Collection Power Reserve overall is a very well done timepiece. 
Pros - Classic in design, power reserve indicator
Considerations - Not a standard lug width for strap changing options
