“Elegance is unique because it allows us to break from traditional aesthetic codes while revealing multiple facets of our personality. It is an opportunity to continually reinvent ourselves, based on our desires and moods, whether serious or playful, but always in keeping with our own tastes and values.” ~ Matthias Breschan, Longines CEO

“Elegance, of course, is an instinctive, elusive concept. It sometimes defies definition, but we know it when we see it. We see it in our distinguished Ambassadors of Elegance 
like Jennifer Lawrence, Regé-Jean Page, Kate Winslet, Suzy, and Zhao Liying. And we see it in every Longines watch, where each small detail enhances the harmony of the whole piece. This is particularly the case with the Mini DolceVita, whose elegance is apparent in its soft, pure lines and its precise proportions.”

The Mini DolceVita features a case with a reduced profile, pure softened lines, and a newly designed stainless steel bracelet, this modern classic is as trendy as it is elegant.


The Mini DolceVita has an impressive lineage: it was inspired by a Longines legend created in 1927 and, of course, the original DolceVita collection from 1997. That collection triggered the now-familiar slogan, “Elegance is an attitude,” and the Mini DolceVita updates the story for a new generation.


Each reference in the Mini DolceVita collection features a rectangular 21.50mm x 29.00mm stainless steel case and is powered by a highly accurate L178 quartz movement. They are water resistant to 3 bar (30 metres).

The highlight of the new Mini DolceVita collection dazzles with a case framed by 
38 IF-VVS Top Wesselton diamonds. And a new Cosmo circular dial inside the rectangular case calls attention to its uncompromising elegance. The Cosmo dial, on view through a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, is characterized by subtle contrasts, featuring a silver sunray background, a white matt hour track, a silver sunray inner circle, and a white matt round small seconds subdial. Its painted Roman numerals and blued steel hands are highly legible against the lighter shades of the dial.

This Mini DolceVita is presented on a newly designed stainless steel bracelet, which, thanks to its 198 links and include an impressive range of colour options and configurations. Six of the new references feature diamonds bordering the case.

In addition to the classic model introduced above, there is a similarly-appointed watch with a Roman rectangular silver-coloured dial distinguished by flinqué decoration, whose subtle geometric patterns are embossed on the dial with a guilloche effect, and painted Roman numerals and blued steel hands. The small seconds hand at the 6 o’clock position is presented in a square subdial.

Each Mini DolceVita model is a powerful expression of elegance and the Italian sweet life associated with the collection. Not only are these stunning jewel watches built on a rich heritage, but they are also uncompromisingly contemporary models for those who value living life to its fullest.
