The Swiss watch brand Longines expands its Heritage collection by reissuing a legendary chronograph with a design inspired from the pilot watches of 1930s.
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.
