On November 7, 2018, Swiss watch brand Longines launched a new and exclusive timepiece exclusively for the US market-the AvigationWatchTypeA-7 watch, a special US limited edition.
Limited to 100 new watches, the new watch showcases the brand’s historical connection with the aviation world in terms of design, performance and precision. This vintage chronograph was inspired by the original model ordered by the US military in 1935.
The case is made of stainless steel with a diameter of 44 mm. It is equipped with a single button integrated with the crown and an anti-glare sapphire crystal. It is waterproof to 30 meters. The black grained dial has a gradient effect, decorated with 10 Arabic numerals and sandblasted rhodium-plated hands coated with Luminova fluorescent material.
It is equipped with a Swiss-made Longines L788.2 self-winding movement (based on ETAA08.L11). This movement contains 27 stones, a frequency of 28,800 vibrations / hour (4 Hz), and a 54-hour power reserve. This watch has central hours, minutes, small seconds (6 o’clock), central chronograph seconds and 30-minute cumulative (12 o’clock) display functions. Black worn leather strap with extended strap that attaches to the bomber jacket. (Photo / text watch home Xu Chaoyang)
