Swiss watch brand, Longines, will showcase its new watch, which has been designed solely for the US market, at The Gordon Bar at hotel Sixty Soho on November 7.
The new Longines Avigation Watch Type A-7 U.S.A. is a re-edition of its 1935 American military model and is available in a limited run of 100 pieces.
The model has a 44 mm stainless steel case, a self-winding L788 calibre and a column-wheel movement developed exclusively for Longines.
It also features a black leather strap, a self-winding L788 calibre, and a commemorative engraving on the case back.
Its grained dial is angled at 40˚ to the right and displays 10 large Arabic numerals that stand in high contrast to the face, designed to allow pilots to easily read the time without having to release the plane’s control yoke.
The new Longines Avigation Watch Type A-7 U.S.A. exclusive edition will be available to retailers from this month.
