Writing another chapter in its exposition that “elegance is an attitude,” Longines launches a fresh line within its DolceVita collection—the Mini DolceVita—and takes the distinctive rectangular case to new heights with a more discreet silhouette.
Measuring just 21.5mm by 29mm (compared to larger DolceVita references that measure 23mm by 37mm, and 20.5mm by 32mm), the Mini DolceVita is a contemporary jewel watch that oozes timeless elegance and modern flair. Powered by the highly accurate L178 quartz movement, the stainless steel timepiece is water resistant to 30m.
Standout features of the Mini DolceVita line include references with Top Wesselton diamonds set on the case, and the new Cosmo circular dial—an understated vision that juxtaposes a silver sunray background and inner circle against a matt white hour track and small seconds subdial, accented by painted Roman numerals and blued steel hands.
A range of colourways and strap options ensures the Mini DolceVita complements any ensemble and occasion. The classic model, with Top Wesselton diamonds flanking the Cosmo circular dial, comes with a steel 198-link bracelet, which wears close to the wrist and fits like a second skin.
There’s also the striking but subtle references without diamonds, such as the watch with the Cosmo circular dial and a stylish black alligator-leather strap, and the watch with the silver-coloured Roman rectangular dial and a bold red alligator-leather strap. And references set with diamonds are dressed in four delicate colours—ivory white, mint green, blossom pink, and serene blue—with straps that match the outer square of the Roman rectangular dial.
Having crafted rectangular watches since the 1910s and unveiled DolceVita’s inspiration in 1927, Longines has been continually reimagining the DolceVita since the collection was launched in 1997. Now, the Mini DolceVita brings the Longines signature into a new era with its petite but powerful expression of refinement, heritage and contemporary style.
