Longines Lyre ladies’ two-colour bracelet watch
This beautiful gold and silver lady’s watch from Longines is a classic and classy piece. It’s fancy enough to wear at business formal or even possibly semi-formal events, but you can also dress it down. This Longines Lyre lady’s two-colour bracelet watch is gold plated with stainless steel highlights. Gold plating is good for the woman who may be a little allergic to large amounts of stainless steel against her skin. Gold tends to be more gentle to sensitive skin. The dial is simple but elegant with its round shape and champagne-coloured dial. No numbers are visible on this watch and the lack of numbers helps create that sophisticated air the watch gives off. A date function is also available with this clock. Longines has been in business since 1832 and is known for the precision work and elegance of the personal timepieces it designs. In 1912 the company is credited with introducing the principle of an electric wire that activated and stopped the timing mechanism at the start and finish of a race. Longines has been the official timeskeeper for many winter and summer Olympic games. The company has also been associated with the history of aviation and navigation.
