I've seen it in person and I think it's pretty fantastic. As I understand, it uses a movement from ETA crafted exclusively for Longines.

Rare combination of functions: Day, Date, 2nd Timezone, PR and attractive design.......but I am not sure what the chrono buttons are for on the right.....my guess would be for +/- the 2nd timezone or the main hour hand sorta like quick set.....can anyone confirm ?

It has a nice look, but I don't know about blue-colored hands. The real 'blue' comes from heat treatment as I understand it. Also, all of these hands and stuff sort of confuse me. It's like having a quartz watch with 1000 functions and read outs - I just get confused and can't even reset the watch when the battery goes dead.

I really like beauty combined with a very bold and clear 'read out.' It even bugs me when I have to roll my wrist over to see the date on my Rolex because the date window can only be read perpendicularly.

I like this watch a lot and just read a review on it in a recent issue of a watch magazine although I can't remember which one.

I agree with a previous post that this one looks even better on the brown leather strap.

I like the blue color of the hands but there are too many damn hands! The two hands on either side remind me of windshield wipers!

Great watch.. been trying to see a life one of them. Personally I love complications especially retrogrades. Heck.. slap a moonphase somewhere there and I'd still get it.

That is a good looking watch!
Yes, it looks overly busy, but you see an enlarged pic. In reality it will be much more discreet.
Nice touch, the blued hands!

It's an awesome multi complication watch, and love the retro grade registers.

It's a poor mans Maurice Lacroix Double Retrograde, and since I don't myself picking one of those up anytime soon, the Longines is a worthy alternative. :-!

This one is a bit different, but there is a Longine model that's pretty much the same.

My thoughts exactly. I'd rather have an Antea KS for much cheaper with heat blued hands than these colored ones.

Not a big Longines fan, but that's a gorgeous watch.

Are you sure the hands are not heat treated?
