The spirit of a city is made up of a combination of the people and places that call it home. Drawing inspiration from its past, present and future. For New York-based culture curator and fashion icon, George Myrie, the spirit of New York is rooted in its resiliency.

“New York has a beautiful way of bouncing back,” George said. “Hurricanes, pandemics, terrorism, New York has always made it through.”

The strength and perseverance found in New York is also found in Longines inspiration for its latest collection: The Longines Spirit.



In the collection, the Swiss watchmaker, pulls from the adventure-seekers and pioneers who came before. Aptly named The Longines Spirit collection, the timepieces are inspired by names like Amelia Earhart and Howard Hughes; and feature Longines’ signature elegant style with modern-day tech we’ve come to love. With a design that truly stand the test of time, the Longines Spirit collection highlights the best of the best for the brand.

“When it comes to watches, I love a clean aesthetic,” said George. “Longines watches remind me of how subtle and understated a reliable watch can be.”
