Borrowed Time: Reviewing the Longines Spirit Chronograph 42mm






Longines introduced its Spirit collection last year, drawing its main inspiration from the timepieces that it produced in the early 20th century for pilots and explorers; Amelia Earhart, Howard Hughes, and Paul-Emile Victor were among the brand?s most famous wearers, along with Charles Lindbergh, who famously co-designed the Hour Angle, Longines? most emblematic and enduring pilots? watch. The Spirit models are not ?pilots? watches? in the strictest sense of the word, but rather can be described as ?Pilot Style? timepieces, with a host of elements drawn from the past along with features that are definitively modern.

Longines Spirit Chronograph 42mm (Ref. L3.820.4.93.0)

A while back, I had the opportunity to review the three-hand date model in steel and more recently I finally got my eager hands on the model that most caught my eye when the series was launched back in Spring 2020 ? the Spirit Chronograph in a steel case with a sunburst blue dial. In just about every respect, the timepiece proved to be worth the wait.

The watch?s 42-mm case sits large but not intimidatingly so on the wrist, and at a fairly thick 15 mm in profile, definitely makes its presence felt. Like its three-handed brethren in the Spirit collection, it sports a thin, dramatically angled bezel framing the dial, giving said dial an impressively wide presence. The sharply angled, faceted lugs are satin-brushed on their largest surfaces, and polished on their angled facets. The bezel ring has a shiny polish on its sloped sides and a brushed finish on its top surface; together the elements, along with the dramatically sunburst-finished dial, create gleaming effects under bright light ? obviously, not what a pilot would necessarily want in a cockpit, but appealing in a dress watch.
The dial has a sunburst finish; the subdials are snailed for contrast.

The screw-down crown is sharply fluted and shaped in the ?diamond? style of those on older pilots? watches (though on those vintage models, it would have likely been much larger). The pump-style chronograph pushers surrounding it are also historically derived and a tactile pleasure to operate. On the opposite side of the case is a bonus, and one not found on very many pilot or pilot-style watches I?ve encountered; a push-button for a quick advancement of the date (in a window at 4:30), secured from accidental usage by a screw-locking ring. I confess that I wasn?t expecting this feature, and the materials I had initially read from Longines don?t really emphasize it ? my first reaction was that it might be a helium release valve, which would have made little sense on a watch for a pilot ? but it is an incredibly user-friendly feature that makes it that much easier to quickly set the correct date after the watch has been idle for a few days.

The chronograph elements all feature a touch of contrasting red.

The dial is in a classically designed, three-register style. It?s bordered by a white-printed railroad-style min...
