Longines Pulse Chronograph A Subtle Combination Of Elegance And Function
Longines, a famous Swiss watch manufacturer, pays tribute to its long-standing watchmaking tradition and injects new vitality into the brand’s antique timepieces. The Longines Pulse Chronograph cleverly combines elegance and function, giving the pulsometer scale its outstanding design, making this simple and exquisite one-button chronograph capable of measuring heart rate.
Inspired by a medical watch from the 1920s, Longines Pulse Chronograph can measure heart rate while displaying time. The prototype of this replica was used as a medical instrument for medical staff at the time, which could quickly and accurately measure the heart rate of patients.
At that time, medical personnel generally obtained heart rate data by accurately counting the number of pulse beats of a patient in 60 seconds. However, this measurement method is not completely accurate. The advent of pulse chronographs has greatly reduced the error in measuring heart rate, and has provided medical personnel with a fast and accurate measurement method. The results are simple and clear. The heart rate measurement is the pulsometer scale to which the chronograph hand points after 30 pulse beats.
The Longines Pulse Chronograph inherits its prototype, highlighting its simplicity and elegance. The white lacquered dial is decorated with black lacquered Arabic numerals, subtly reflecting the Breguet blue-steel hands, and the red pulsometer scale is subtly presented on the dial. This watch is equipped with a stainless steel case with a diameter of 40 mm. Longines’ exclusive column wheel movement details are clearly visible through the transparent case back, showing the superb craftsmanship of watchmakers. The brown leather strap gives the watch a more harmonious look.
