Longines has naturally chosen Rome to present the 2019 novelties of one of its emblematic collection, Longines DolceVita. Characterized by its rectangular case, this line is enhanced this year with new dials in white and blue starry night, interchangeable coloured straps and an additional oversized case. On the occasion of the watch presentation, Longines invited its Ambassador of Elegance Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to celebrate the new models as well as the 20th anniversary of their friendship.

True ode to the Italian sweet life, Longines DolceVita draws its inspiration from an historical piece from the 1920’s. Since its creation in 1997, the line has developed as many variations as there are ways of living and expressing the dolce vita. To unveil the 2019 novelties of this collection, the Swiss watch brand invited its guests at the Villa Aurelia, a typical Italian mansion located near Rome, which perfectly matches with the spirit of the timepieces presented.

Longines unveiled a new system of interchangeable coloured straps to personalize your DolceVita watch as well as new dials in white and blue starry night. An additional XL case size, which perfectly suits men wrists, was also introduced.
