Features of the Longines Evidenza
The Evidenza models
are designed as dress watches
. In particular, the versions with a brown crocodile leather strap have a real classic charm. The version with a stainless-steel bracelet may seem rather unusual at first glance, but this version is equally convincing. A big advantage of the series is its versatility. Longines offers its Evidenza watches
in a wide range of sizes. The Evidenza (Ref. L126.96.36.199.6)
is the slimmest version with dimensions of 19.6 by 23.3 mm, while the 34.9 by 40 mm reference L2.6188.8.131.52
is a sizable alternative. However, there’s no need to be put off by the dimensions, as the watches usually look smaller and are comfortable when worn thanks to the elegant tonneau shape
Time and time again the question of the movement used leads to big discussions. As Longines is part of the Swatch Group, the brand uses ETA movements
. For many watch connoisseurs, this is a flaw, but it is unjustly considered as such. The high demand for ETA movements ensures continuous development and ensures that spare parts and maintenance are available for many years, regardless of the history of a watch model or its manufacturer. Investing in a Longines watch
is therefore also worthwhile from a durability point of view. The movements used in the Evidenza models
operate at 28,800 vibrations per minute and, depending on the model, have a chronograph complication and a power reserve of up to 42 hours. The water resistance is 30 metres, which is more than enough for a dress watch. The scratch-resistant dial is made of sapphire crystal and has several anti-reflective layers.

Longines history and the Evidenza
Longines recognised early in their history how important it is to build a company on several fundamental but unchangeable principles. Applying these principles to the art of watchmaking, the company devotes itself elegance, tradition and performance
. The name Longines refers to the place in Saint-Imier where Ernest Francillon built the company's first factory building. In 1889, Longines trademarked its brand and winged hourglass logo. This landmark event represents the oldest trademark applied for at the Swiss Federal Institute for Intellectual Property. Having stood the test of time, the logo has remained unchanged today.
A brilliant past with aspirations for the future
However, the appearance of the watches has changed somewhat over the years. In 1913, the company presented its first wristwatch with a calibre developed in-house. However, this particular release was not particularly well received. Only three years later though, the watch manufacturer introduced the new oval and rectangular shapes for its movements. The Evidenza series
pays homage to this innovative spirit
. The tonneau-shaped cases combined Longines' desire to produce distinctive luxury watches with timeless elegance. Whether you choose to wear a new or pre-owned Evidenza
, you have a piece of history on your wrist – from the past or in the future.
The Evidenza on the silver screen
Who do you pay most attention to in Bond movies? James Bond, the Bond girl or the bad guy? Undoubtedly you’ll focus on one of these people, but it is also looking at the finer details
. Because despite Bond being more associated with Omega watches, the Evidenza from Longines
has also made it to the big screen
too. It wasn’t the watch of choice for the royal spy, but it was on the wrist of the villain in “Casino Royale”. In the movie Mads Mikkelsen, Bond’s adversary, wears a Longines Longines Evidenza (ref. L2.6126.96.36.199)
. In “Skyfall”, Bond is also interviewed by a psychologist who is wearing the Evidenza (ref. L2.6188.8.131.52)
. Bond's fierce MI6 boss Similarly, “M” opts for Longines timepieces. However, Judi Dench wears a model from the Conquest Heritage collection.
