The Best Men's Longines Watch for Under 1000 Dollars
The case is large, 40mm stainless steel, with the crown located at the 3 o'clock position, and with crown guards around the area. It has a sapphire lens, and a screw on back. The face is white with Arabic hour markers at the 12 and 6 o'clock positions, and with index markers for the other hourly positions. It has a date window at the 3 o'clock position as well, and the hour, minute and second hands are all chromed steel. The band is a three link style, stainless steel version, with a triple fold safety clasp to round out the look and function of the watch.
The movement is quartz. A model L115. It is a modified, 7 jewel, ETA 955.112, reminding all of us that the Longines brand is owned by Swatch.
I see the watch for sale on the web for around 700 dollars, generally. I believe it to be a very well made watch, and one that should withstand a fairly active lifestyle, and fit in most situations. It is a very well rounded watch and shows the years of experience Longines has in watchmaking. It's a nice buy in my mind.
The Best Men's Longines Watch for Under 2000 Dollars
It is no surprise to me to see this watch on this list. It is totally a watch I would wear. I love this style. It reminds me a lot of my Shinola. I couldn't help myself when I stumbled across it.
This Master Collection watch has a 38.5mm Stainless steel case, with the crown at the 3 o'clock position. It has a narrow bezel, giving the face the look of being bigger without adding a lot of bulk to your wrist. The front and back have sapphire lenses. The dial face is white with black Arabic numerals marking the hours. There is a date window at the 6 o'clock position. The hands are blued steel, and the band is a three link, stainless steel style, with a triple fold safety clasp.
The movement in the Longines is a L619/L888 Automatic movement. It has 21 Jewels, and runs at 28,800 bph. It has a 42 hour power reserve. It is a modified ETA 2892-A2. But, I have also read there is no modification at all, it is an off the shelf ETA.
I have found this watch all over the internet for around 1500 dollars. Personally, I think I would have possibly bought this instead of my Shinola, if I would have known it was out there. And if I had the spare 800 dollars. The Shinola is only about 700 dollars.

This Master Collection watch has made its presence felt on one of my previous lists. It was on the 5 best men's watches under 5000 dollars. It is a nice watch. A lot like the Master Collection watch already on this list, but with a bit of high end materials added to it to increase the value of the watch dramatically.
The case of this watch is 38.5mm 18ct pink gold. It has a narrow bezel as well, to give the face a larger appearance without adding unneeded bulk to the watch. There is a crown at the 3 o'clock position, which is also pink gold. There is a sapphire lens on both the front and back of the watch. The dial face is silver, with diamond indexes for the hour markers. There is a total of 0.55ct of Wesselton diamonds. The hands of the watch are also pink gold, and the band is alligator leather, with a buckle style clasp.
The movement in the Longines is a L619/L888 Automatic movement. It has 21 Jewels, and runs at 28,800 bph. It has a 42 hour power reserve. It is a modified ETA 2892-A2. This is the same as the watch above. It is a good movement. Longines almost exclusively uses ETA movements.
I have found this watch on a few internet retailers for around 4200 dollars. I think it's a lot of watch for the price. You are getting high end materials, and you are getting a watch from a highly reputable company.
The Best Men's Longines Watch for Under 10,000 Dollars
Another watch I really like the looks of. I am actually highly impressed by the Longines lines of watches, they are, in all appearances, high quality products. And this watch is definitely, no exception.
The Heritage Chronograph has a 40mm 18ct. pink gold case, with a crown at the 3 o'clock position. It is a multi-function crown, eliminating the need for the auxiliary chronograph buttons. It is also pink gold. The bezel is narrow, following the general design cues of many of the Longines lines. It has a sapphire lens on both the front and the back of the watch. The dial face is white and the hour markers are black Arabic numerals. There is a date window at the 6 o'clock position. There is a 30 minute counter at the 3 o'clock position and a small seconds at the 9 o'clock position. The chronograph uses the central second hand. The watch has a alligator leather strap with a buckle style clasp.
The movement is a automatic L788. It is a ETA A08.L11 base, with 52 hours of reserve. It has 27 jewels and runs at 28.800 bph.
I generally find this watch at online retailers for around 8,800 dollars. Nicely below the 10,000 dollar price point. It is a classic looking watch, and one that should be a sound investment for a lifetime of use.
