The steel Longines Railroad replica collection stays true to Longines’ tradition of designing railway watches, with its simple yet effective design. This watch is nostalgic and its automatic winding caliber gives the owner an impressive 64 hour power reserve. Longines has based the design of this watch on the “railway grade” watches which were made for the rail service in the 1960’s.
The dial is off-white polished with black paint Arabic numerals displaying both the 12 hour and 24 hour clock; the off white dial gives the elegant fake longines watch a vintage feel.
The number 280 on the original dial referred to Longines’ hand wound calibre 280, an in-house movement created to withstand the demands of usage in the railway service .The dial of the new replica Longines Railroad timepiece has the number 888 on the dial in reference to Longines’ in-house calibre L888.2.
