The Longines Avigation GMT is no exception: it’s a robust watch with an old-fashioned style and a useful display.
The Longines Avigation is inspired by a 1949 timepiece produced for the British Army. The term “avigation,” which is an amalgam of “aviation” and “navigation,” harks back to the time when Longines was supplying many armies and other military units with robust and highly legible tools, such as the original “Majetek Vojenske Spravy,” made for the Czech Air Force. The original Longines Avigation watch was made to meet military specifications for resistance, legibility and antimagnetic capability.
Along with the dimensions of its round, 44-mm stainless steel case, which matches those of the original, the main feature the new Avigation has in common with its predecessor is a technical one. The new edition of the Longines Avigation also comes with an antimagnetic “Faraday Cage” (a soft iron case) that protects the movement against magnetic fields and thus makes it suitable for pilots and navigators.
