Longines brings second special edition collection to the US market


Longines has introduced its limited edition re-issue of a classic 1935 military timepiece, the Avigation Watch Type A-7 USA Limited Edition, to the US market.

The watch, being made in a run of 100 numbered pieces, is the latest addition to the brand’s popular Heritage collection and aimed particularly at American collectors.

It is also the second collection produced specifically for the United States market, following on from a special edition of the Hydroconquest diver’s watch for America.


The Avigation Watch Type A-7 USA has a 44mm stainless steel case, a self-winding L788 chronograph calibre and a column-wheel movement developed exclusively for Longines.

Its black face is angled at 40 degrees to the right, a clever, a design that helped pilots read the time without having to release the plane’s control yoke.

The watch is now available online and in stores across the United States.
