The New Longines Avigation Watch Type A7: Inspired by the History of Aviation.

The famous Swiss watch Longines brand is launching the Longines Avigation Watch Type A7, an imposing single push-piece chronograph. Associated since the beginning of the 20th century with the pioneers of aviation, Longines is today paying tribute to history’s first pilots with an exclusive new watch.

Longines Avigation: Swiss performance and quality

With its self-winding mechanical calibre and its single push-piece column-wheel movement, the Avigation Watch Type A7 offers optimum precision. The Longines watch’s large dial allows it to be easily read and adjusted. The angle of the dial, which allows the watch to be worn on the inside of the wrist, has a historical explanation: it allowed pilots to read the dial without having to let go of their aircraft’s controls.

Inspired by the designs of the 30s, the new Longines watch bears witness to the high standards of the era as much in terms of quality as appearance with an elegant black dial and self-winding chronograph movement. Longines have gone as far as to unveil the mechanism of the Avigation Watch Type A7 through the inclusion of a hinge cover on the back which lets the wearer observe the timepiece’s movement.
