Military watch adds to Longines Heritage range


Longines has added to its Heritage Collection with an on-trend piece inspired by a Longines issued to British Special Forces in the 1940s.

The 40mm Longines Heritage Military COSD is based on a watch created for British paratroopers of the Combined Operations Command and will no doubt prove popular given the current interest in British military watches of the period.

A clean opaline dial with clear luminous markings and the Broad Arrow, found on all government-issue equipment at the time all point to the watch’s place in military history.


The steel watch uses an automatic movement and features both blued hands, 12-hour markers in black and 24-hour scale in red along with a railroad track along the perimeter of the dial.

A second version of the Longines Heritage Military COSD, which is presented on black leather (£1,240) and NATO (£1,100) straps, is available with a matte black dial and rhodium-plated hands.
