Watch Style: Lonville Virage ’59 Blue GMT

Lonville Virage ’59 Blue GMT

Elegance is at the heart of the Lonville ’59 GMT. I don’t just mean that in terms of the deep blue soleil dial or the classic, white gold case. It’s just as graceful on the inside, with its blue micro rotor and easily readable second time zone function. It’s a clean, harmonious and utterly beautiful watch. So what to wear with possibly the coolest GMT on the planet? Keep things clean and classic with a sharp Prince of Wales suit from Tom Ford and a crisp white Canali shirt to allow the watch to sit nicely against the grey suit fabric. It’s a simple look but perfect to show off the GMT. If that’s a bit too restrained for you, you could pair instead with a striking Boglioli tweed jacket and camel cashmere crewneck from Johnstons of Elgin for a more versatile option. The camel cashmere will tone down the blue but complement it in a tasteful way.




For a relaxed alternative, switch to the ’59 GMT’s suede strap and combine the cashmere crewneck with a pair of Corneliani light construction trousers for an off-duty vibe that retains a smart and polished look. It has a drawstring waist for comfort and a single pleat that blurs the line between formal and casual into nothingness. At this point you can decide between loafers or white sneakers depending on your mood. Finish with a pair of Cutler and Gross sunglasses – with the blue-tinted lenses, obviously.
