Swiss watch manufacturer Longines has announced that it is set to launch the Pulsometer Chronograph, a new timepiece inspired by a medical watch from the early 1920s.
The 40 mm watch, produced in steel, contains a self-winding mechanical movement that beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and has 27 jewels. Its functions will include hours, minutes, small seconds at 9 o’clock and date display at 6 o’clock.
Its chronograph functions include a central 60-second hand and 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock, whilst a pulsometer scale is also on offer.
The dial of the timepiece is presented in white lacquer with 9 painted black Arabic numerals, of which is complemented by Breguet-type hands in blued steel. This is visible through the sapphire crystal display that has been treated with several layers of anti-reflective coating.
It is finished off with a transparent caseback that allows the wearer to view the mechanism itself. While, each watch is supplied on a brown alligator leather strap with buckle.
The Longines Pulsometer Chronograph boasts a minimum power reserve of approximately 54 hours and is water resistant up to a pressure of 3 bar (30 meters or 100 feet).
