Longines Mini Watches

Swiss watchmakers have been supersizing their offering for more than a decade but Longines has decided that small is still beautiful, under the right circumstances. Take a gander at the Longines Mini, which at just 16mm in diameter is the Swiss brand’s smallest watch in the current collection, and decide for yourself if this isn’t a fetching model of elegance and savoir faire. How tiny is this watch, exactly? Well, it is actually smaller than the base of some lipsticks!

All options with the Longines Mini are in steel and is decorated with diamonds on the bezel. The piece de resistance here are the straps, which are in luminous colours ranging from vivid red and soft lavender to trendy beige and chic black. Those terms are actually what Longines officially calls these colours, once again calling to mind shades of lipstick.

Obviously, the appeal of the multiple colors is in the opportunity to match with different outfits for different occasions. Yes, the watchmakers at St. Imier are interested in fulfilling your #OOTD needs. Whatever your tastes might be, we think these colours will make for a nice contrast with the blued steel hour and minute hands, along with the mother-of-pearl dial.

On the technical front, the Longines Mini is powered by a quartz movement, calibre L298.2, which is how Longines manages to maintain such a dainty size. Despite the size, the clean dial and baton hands allow one to easily read off the time while the case retains a certain degree of strength, being water resistant to 30 meters.
