My opinion may be biased for those people considering buying Longines, but I'd like to express reservations about the Longines quality. I have bought Longines for two women in my life. You ask me why? Longines model provide the understated sophistication and classic tone, but I was deeply disappointed with the models. Both watches skip dates. The company only offered to fix the problem for money even though the quality issue has nothing to do with wearers' care. (I can provide passport numbers and model names).
I personally go with Jaeger le Coultre and Luminor Panerai.
Again, due to poor customer service (unresponsive) and quality issues with two separate models I would caution against considering Longines purchases. That's my biased opinion based on real life observation.
