Longines Heritage Collection Avigation Oversize Crown - Concealed right before our eyes
One of the oldest famous brands in the world is at the same time still an insider tip. Longines was established by Auguste Agassiz, Florian Morel and Henri Raigul in 1832 and already in 1889, it had to protect its name to prevent poor copies. The robust and incredibly wearable, elegant timekeepers of those three founders were much requested. And although the collections by the brand cover a wide range today and the label stands for innovations - such as with the Avigation Oversize Crown - the sophisticated wristwatches by the Swiss manufactory are still a real secret tip among insiders. That was reason enough for Longines to re-issue some of the classics with the Heritage Collection and to present the history in form of a watch series to a broad audience. It also includes the Avigation Oversize Crown Collection which, among others, is dedicated to Charles Lindbergh who himself created a timekeeper for pilots in cooperation with Longines.
Reminiscence to pioneers
As the name already suggests, the timepieces from this Longines Heritage Collection are dedicated to those pilots from a time when aviation was still a very new adventure. Correspondingly distinctive are the designs of the new men's watches which straps are made of leather, while their cases are manufactured of stainless steel and red gold. With the dials of the Avigation Oversize Crown you have the choice between black and white, between Roman and Arabic numerals and indexes. Of course, the functions in this Heritage Collection leave nothing to be desired. Luminous hands and indexes, the subsidiary second, the central second and the date are presented to you by the Avigation Oversize Crown series as well as the famous hour angle watch which was personally developed by Charles Lindbergh.
Of course, you don't have to be a pilot to be interested in a timepiece from the Heritage Line. And taking a look at the legendary Legend Diver or the Conquest Heritage from the collection is well worthwhile.
