Longines Unveils the Spirit Flyback: A Titanium Marvel

Longines is making waves once again with the introduction of the Spirit Flyback timepiece. This stunning watch boasts a grade 5 titanium case and offers the choice between a titanium bracelet or a NATO-style strap.

Measuring a substantial 42mm in diameter and 17mm in thickness (with a lug-to-lug span of 49mm), the Spirit Flyback doesn’t shy away from making a bold statement on your wrist. Part of that thickness can be attributed to the domed sapphire crystal.

The dial of the Spirit Flyback is a captivating sunray anthracite, perfectly complemented by a black ceramic bezel insert. The applied Arabic numerals and hands feature Super-LumiNova, with delightful gilt accents.

What sets the Spirit Flyback apart is its grade 5 titanium case, offering an impressive 100 meters of water resistance. In the world of watchmaking, titanium comes in two primary forms: Grade 2 and Grade 5. Longines’ decision to opt for the slightly higher-quality grade 5 titanium is commendable. This alloy, which includes aluminum and vanadium (6% aluminum and 4% vanadium, often referred to as Ti 6Al-4V), is known for its increased hardness. Typically reserved for higher-end manufacturing, Grade 5 titanium stands out in terms of durability and strength when compared to its Grade 2 counterpart.

For context, renowned timepieces like the Rolex Yacht-Master rely on Grade 5 titanium, while more budget-friendly options, like the Tudor Pelagos 39, make use of Grade 2.

If you’re eager to get your hands on the Longines Spirit Flyback in titanium, the good news is that it’s available now. The retail price for this remarkable timepiece is set at US$5,200 when paired with a titanium bracelet and US$4,850 when adorned with a stylish NATO-style strap.
