        The Les Elegantes series from Longines is being called the representative of the Art Deco movement. These watches have been rolled out in three different dial shapes – oval, tonneau and rectangular. The watch is completely created out of rich and pure 18 carat white gold, and is redefining the meaning of luxury in the field of watches. This series is decorated with the famous Top Wesselton WS diamonds, and depending on the shape you opt for, your watch will be studded with 56, 72 or 42 diamonds. The most striking feature is the decoration on the back and the middle portion of the watch, which, in yet another display of elegance, is hand-engraved. The watch also sports sapphire crystal that is resistant to any sort of scratches, and a silvered dial, on which twelve Arabic numerals are written. The backdrop of the dial is a minute track that is painted in black. People at Longines have done an experiment with the hands, painting the steel hands blue or black, and this, against the beautiful background of the dial, is looking exquisite.
