The Longines Pulsometer Chronograph features the L788.2 movement, which is a self-winding column-wheel chronograph with a 54 hour power reserve. The movement layout is that of an ETA 7750, but Longines replica uk have made a couple of major alterations to the well-known tractor movement.
They have retro-fitted a blue steel column-wheel and a monopusher modification. This is a huge aesthetic improvement, but one that might raise the hackles of purists.
The 7750 was never designed to take a column wheel – in fact, it was the first replica watches uk in the world to feature the cam system. Because the 7750 relies on stamped out, easy to assemble parts that were designed on a computer, it often fails to get the respect it deserves.
The addition of a column wheel improves the look of the thing but, in my mind at least, is almost insulting to the merits of the movement that lies behind the L788.32.
That said, Longines replica watches have done more than stick a nice component on an industry stalwart – the parts of the L788.2 are finished to a higher standard than we might expect to see on a 7750. The auto-weight has the Longines logo silhouette cut-out and the brand name in gilded letters.
