Dubai, UAE, September 13, 2017:  The Swiss watch brand Longines regularly draws on its historical pieces to enhance its Heritage line. Today, it is reissuing a chronograph with a design from the 1930es, in keeping with the great tradition of pilot watches. The brand has a long-standing relationship with the field of aviation. This timepiece will delight lovers of the brand's centuries-old watchmaking expertise. 

With its rich watchmaking tradition, Longines places particular importance on the work of memory. The brand with the winged hourglass thus continues to acquire new watches to enrich its museum’s collection, which traces the brand’s 185-year history. Today, Longines has decided to reissue one of its recent acquisitions as part of its Heritage collection: The Longines Avigation BigEye. It is a model with an assertive look that will please lovers of beautiful vintage pieces steeped in history.

The Longines Avigation BigEye is inspired by a chronograph whose aesthetic is typical of the great age of aviation. True to the spirit of pilots’ watches, this model displays a very readable dial with a focus on the minute counter and impressive push buttons that enable the wearer to handle them while wearing gloves. 

The 41 mm diameter case of The Longines Avigation BigEye houses a L688 column wheel chronograph movement produced exclusively for Longines. Its semi-glossy black dial is decorated with Arabic numerals coated with SuperLuminova©, and displays a small second hand at 9 o'clock as well as a 12-hour counter at 6 o'clock. The oversized 30-minute counter at 3 o'clock adds a touch of aesthetic originality to this timepiece. A domed crystal and a brown leather watch strap add vintage elegance to the piece.
