Editor's Notes

September 05, 2019:

In revisiting this ranking, we found it necessary to remove only one model from our previous list — the Lingbergh Hour — mainly for availability concerns, but also because we found its bezel and dial to be a little too busy given its actual functionality. What we found to take its place immediately shot up to number one, thanks to both the unusual nature of its design, and its incredible movement, which offers more than 28,000 vibrations per minute.

We also saw fit to upgrade the previous HydroConquest model from a quartz option to a mechanical reference. While there's nothing inherently wrong with a quartz movement (it is more accurate, for example) it's undeniable that the average customer looking for a Longines watch isn't interested in quartz. Rather, they're more likely part of the relatively recent explosion of interest in automatic timepieces.

In reorganizing the list around our new additions, we prioritized things like reserve power, movement complications, water resistance, and style, while being on the lookout for important features like scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and dimensions that are both in line with current trends and suitable for the greatest number of wrist sizes.
