Reviewing the Longines Heritage Avigation GMT

Longines introduces a new edition in its Heritage line, a vintage- and military-inspired Best Quality Omega Replica Watches that takes its place alongside the recently launched Heritage 1935, Heritage Diver and Conquest Heritage 1954. This collection of Longines watches is certainly the brand’s most interesting, with vintage inspired designs and practical complications. 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.

The dial is also an ode to vintage pilot 2015 Latest Replica Watches UK, with its black dial and large, contrasting Arabic numerals painted in white, all of are luminous for good nighttime legibility.
