    Longines "Flagship" in 18ct Pink gold?

    Hi,

    I have recently seen a very nice watch, namely the Longines "Flagship" Automatic chrono in 18ct pink gold.
    The Longines model No. is L4.756.8.72.2.
    The watch looks stunning and I know that Longines are a very reputable watch company, however....

    Are the movements any good?
    Is the build quality any good?

    In other words how do they compare against say Omega, Zenith or JLC?

    Are they...

    A/ A very good value for money "bang for buck" quality watch?

    B/ Cheaper because you get what you pay for and therefore one should expect a lesser quality build and movement?

    I know they are part of the Swatch group as are Omega.
    I know they use their cal 651 which is an ETA 2849/2 movement , modified for Longines.
    I don't know if the ETA 2849/2 is a good high end or a low end movement

    I don't want to buy a watch that is a nice looking gold watch but is inferior to others I could also afford if I sacrificed the gold
    Image and brand are not as important as the quality and technical standards of the watch.

    Any advice or suggestions welcome.
    :thanks
    Mac.

    When I sold them I pit them against B&M. Today, Longines is a great
    value.
