Longines L2.643.4.73.4 34.9mm Evidenza Chronograph Automatic for men and women

This wrist flattering watch is considerably a large size, a practical one. Its barrel shaped case measures 34.9 mm × 40 mm and slim enough for an automatic chronograph at 12.8 mm thick. Meanwhile, its Brown leather bracelet that comes equipped with a deployment folding clasp is around 22 mm wide. Its has a stylish design that goes easy with anything from casual to formal attires alike, and its construction is 30 m water resistant.

Just like every Longines, this Evidenza is finely manufactured in Saint-Imier, Switzerland, with quality materials and components for longevity. Its mirror polished tonneau case that comes with a fixed bezel and pull and push crown with two pushers at the right hand side is made of highly durable stainless steel 316L. Its bracelet is a genuine alligator leather that is not only rich looking, but also supple and comfortable to wear. Furthermore, its face is securely shielded with the brand’s sapphire crystal that is renown for its continual clarity and strength.

Not only stylish and durable, this Longines L2.643.4.73.4 watch also offers a good read-ability as well, thanks to its bright Silver "flinqué" dial’s neat layout. On the dial, there are a distinct Blued steel hands and Arabic numeral hour markers, and three sub-dials that sparsely located across, along with a legible date aperture at six --overlapping with the 12 hour counter, but quite easy to notice.

The Longines caliber L650 that is fitted inside this Evidenza chronograph is pleasingly accurate --rated at -6+14 sec./day, and quite rugged too. It is a Swiss automatic 37 jewels movement that is personalized by the watchmaker based on the ETA 2894/2. This calibre beats at a high frequency and provides 42 hours of power reserve. And speaking of the functionality, it offers three hands with an automatic date at six and small seconds at three, along with chronograph function with central sweep seconds, 30 minute counter at nine, and 12 hour counter at six.

As for pricing, this steel on leather formal timepiece is a tad bit cheaper compared to its steel on steel variant --based on their MSRP. Its original manufacturer suggested retail price is reasonable enough at $2,875.00.
