Longines Flying Over The Atlantic Watch

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.
