Longines’ Heritage line is filled with sleek modern recreations of notable historic Longines watches: the Heritage Military 1938, the Heritage Classic, the Heritage Skin Diver — the list goes on and on. And we think they’re all pretty damn awesome.

Glad you think so, too, because we’ve got another one for you! The Heritage Classic Chronograph 1946 is a 40mm, dual-register chrono in steel inspired from a post-War model by the famed St. Imier-based manufacturer. Featuring a handsome domed silver opaline dial with with beautiful black Breguet numerals, blued leaf-style hands, a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, the watch is a clear reference to one of the very best decades for horological design.

Powered by the automatic caliber L895 movement with 54 hours of power reserve and chronograph complication with 30-minute and running seconds totalizers, the Heritage Classic Chronograph 1946 ships on a black leather strap and is available for $3,050.
