Inside is the cal. L895.5, which is actually an ETA A31.L21 made exclusively by ETA for Longines. The ETA A31.L21, in turn, is actually the widely used modular chronograph made up of an ETA 2892 with a Dubois-Depraz chronograph module on top. While the movement is widely used, the version here is an upgraded variant made for Longines, in keeping with its parent company Swatch Group’s practice of retaining upgraded movements for only its own brands.
While the original is a bit of an odd watch visually, the remake looks good. The Heritage Classic Chronograph 1946 is nearly identical to the original, save for its size and importantly, the shape of the hands, which make quite a difference. As with most remakes, the 1946 has been bulked up to 40mm, still a good, manageable size. The 1946 has an entirely polished case, with faceted lugs that are polished on both faces.
At its price point, the design and build quality of Longines remakes are extremely compelling, and the 1946 chronograph is no different. The styling is spot-on; Longines smartly kept it sweet and simple, avoiding any retro affectation beyond being a historical remake. And the quality of the case and dial are simple, but solid, and the improved ETA movement is an advantage over the competition (which has to rely on the non-upgraded movements, at least for now).

The Heritage 1918 stands out thanks to the two looped lugs on its case, which serve as fastening points for the light brown leather strap.
