For 2021 Longines introduced a re-issue of their Silver Arrow watch, which dates back to 1955.
As is the case with most of the Heritage collection, Longines made a very faithful re-issue of the original mid-century model. The Heritage Silver Arrow comes in a 38.5 mm stainless steel case with a domed sapphire crystal and a screw-in steel caseback.
The domed dial has a matte silver opaline finish and features wide lance-shaped (or alpha) hour and minute hands and a needle-shaped center seconds hand. The Longines winged emblem is applied to the dial, just below the printed “LONGINES” logo. “Silver Arrow” is printed in black cursive writing at 6.
Interestingly, the hour applied hour markers have striated (or ridged) surfaces and are surrounded by a silver ring that delineates between the hours and the printed railroad track outer minutes/seconds ring. There’s no date and the minimalist dial, with its unique indices, hands, and metal ring, plus a distinctive case should make this an attractive buy at a retail price of $2,100.
