New interpretation of The Longines Avigation BigEye

Conquering the skies

Since the early 20th century, Longines has been associated with conquering the skies. Today, the winged-hourglass brand presents a new interpretation of The Longines Avigation BigEye in titanium with a petrol blue dial, in homage to the greatest aviation moments and its pioneers. This pilot’s chronograph with an emblematic 1930s’ design is characterised by the striking size of its 30-minute counter: a unique look that inspired the model’s name (BigEye).
