Longines has released the re-edition of "Tuxedo", which made its debut in 1945 featuring the two tone dial. In addition to the chronograph model shown in the photo, two small-second models are available. The new models have an automatic movement using Silicium-made hairspring adjusted to the modern specifications instead of the manual winding movement fitted in the original model. The two auxiliary dials serve for tracking lapsed seconds and for totalizing up to 30 minutes. The midnight blue tachymeter is inscribed around the silver Opaline dial.
