Add Colour To Your Life

Swiss watchmaker Longines expands its leading DolceVita collection with delightful interchangeable straps in various hues.

Portrait of Tammy Strobel

"DolceVita is an ode to the Italian sweet life, so live life to the fullest by customising your watch to suit your mood. These leather straps are available in S and M sizes."

If you’re one who’d match your makeup to suit your mood or outfit, the new Longines DolceVita watch is made for you. The luxury watchmaker has introduced an array of interchangeable straps (in two sizes) in a fun rainbow of eight colours – yellow, orange, taupe, coral, brown, pine green, turquoise and lime green.

While this marks the first time that the watch is customisable in such a way, the DolceVita actually made its debut back in 1997 with a minimalist rectangular case that was inspired by a model from the 1920s. The elegant timepiece epitomises the Swiss brand’s ethos of simple designs with a timeless appeal, featuring dials in white with either understated hour markers or traditional Arabic numerals.

If the pop citrus hues are a tad bright, opt for the version with an enchanting blue starry night dial with a leather strap in the same tone or stainless steel bracelet. Inspired by magical Italian nights, it is a sophisticated piece that works for both work and the weekends.


The DolceVita is available at all Longines boutiques.
