In 1933, Charles Lianba, the American pilot who completed the first nonstop flight over the North Atlantic Ocean, and his wife began to prepare for a flight over the ‘Far North’. The adventurer couple decided to take off from New York , Through Newfoundland, Greenland and Europe back to the United States via Gambia, Brazil, Cuba. To this end, Lianba not only chose a powerful aircraft with a 710-horsepower engine and a controlled-pitch propeller, but also brought a Longines chronograph specifically designed for this flight. In 2010, Longines re-issued this ‘Flying across the Atlantic’ to commemorate this great voyage. This mechanical chronograph watch has a diameter of 47.50mm and a self-winding movement. Like its original version, there is a small seconds dial at 9 o’clock, a 30-minute cumulative dial at 3 o’clock, and a tachometer that measures speeds up to 500 km / h. The watch has a sapphire crystal and a sturdy case, and the transparent back allows you to appreciate the movement.
