Longines Avigation – modern retro

Longines_AvigationThe Avigation is a model of the Longines Heritage-collection. The retro inspired design is quite beautiful – a modern watch with a retro appeal. The crisp white painted arabic numerals on the black dial guarantee a good legibility, also because of the approprietly-sized handset. Numerals and hands are filled with Super-LumiNova.
The 24-hour/GMT scale is printed in red and the same red appears on the GMT hand. The date window takes place of the 3 numeral. The large cutout makes this complication easy to read, his white color, as well as the white frame, reinforce the retro look of the dial.

The watch comes with a 44mm stainless steel case which weighs 120g. This big and heavy it is not designed for everyone’s wrist. The scratch-resistant sapphire crystal has several layers of anti-reflective coating on the underside. The Avigation is water-resistant to 3 bar.
The self winding mechanical movement provides 48 hours of power reserve. The strap is croc-embossed leather.
