The Longines Avigation
A handy pilot’s watch
The Longines Heritage Avigation clearly demonstrates the close association of the renowned Swiss manufacturer with the world of aviation. In the 1920s, the company collaborated closely with the aviation pioneer Charles Ling Bergh, who in 1927 crossed the Atlantic Ocean alone. The challenges and the adventures he endured were all carried out with a legendary Longines aviator watch around his wrist. Thanks to Bergh’s voyages, Longines was able to assess and create the perfect aviation watch.
It goes without saying that the Longines Watch Avigation Type A-7 (Ref. L2.7220.127.116.11) is an exceptional timepiece. The watch immediately catches eyes – especially considering that the face of the watch has been shifted 45 degrees to the right. Thanks to this distinctive design, pilot’s are practically able to read the watch without adjusting the arms or letting go of control instruments. Further highlighting features of the watch include a larger than average stainless steel case and a black alligator leather strap, which perfectly complement one another and exude a sporty yet elegant feel.
