La dolce vita, an Italian phrase that means a life of pleasure and simple luxury. It’s about enjoying the good things in life and indulging in the things you love.
So, inspired by the sweet life, as its name suggests, Longines introduced the DolceVita watch collection for ladies back in 1997. Known for its subtle blend of geometric lines and soft curves, the elegant timepiece range charms women by exuding both elegance and femininity. And since its inception, the collection has been met with much success worldwide.
Over the years, various refinements to the collection have been made, with the latest refresh being in 2015. This year, the Swiss watchmaker further enriches this quintessential ladies collection with new variants in a combination of two metals: Rose gold and steel. Available in a range of different executions, these bi-material models feature solid rose gold crowns to match their rose gold and steel bracelets. Powered by a quartz movement, most versions (except the smallest model in the collection) offer a small seconds indicator at the six o’clock position on top of the regular timekeeping function.
Among the variants is a piece with a silver-coloured “flinqué” dial with painted Roman numerals and blued steel hands. Its sleek stainless steel case is adorned with 46 Wesselton VVS diamonds, weighing in at approximately 0.552ct. Two bi-metal models with either a black lacquered or white mother-of-pearl dial set with 13 Top Wesselton VS diamonds totalling about 0.059ct (which serve as hour markers), have also been introduced.
It’s time to live the good life.
