The Longines Avigation BigEye: Grand Winner of the Prize “Revival” of the 2017 Grand Prix de l’Horlogerie de Genève

Corporate
November 10, 2017

With its rich watchmaking tradition, Longines places particular importance on the work of memory. The brand with the winged hourglass thus continues to acquire new watches to enrich its museum’s collection, which traces the brand’s 185-year history. The Longines Avigation BigEye is a reinterpretation of one of its recent acquisitions, a model with an assertive look that succeed in convincing the Jury of the GPHG and won the Prize in the “Revival” category for the best reinterpretation of an iconic historical model, during a ceremony at the Théâtre du Léman in Geneva, convening 1,350 guests – representing influential players in the watchmaking, political and economic arenas – to celebrate the quest for excellence, creativity and passion that drives the watch industry.

 

The Longines Avigation BigEye is inspired by a chronograph whose aesthetic is typical of the great age of aviation. True to the spirit of pilots’ watches, this model displays a very readable dial with a focus on the minute counter and impressive push buttons that enable the wearer to handle them while wearing gloves.

 

The 41 mm diameter case of The Longines Avigation BigEye houses a L688 column wheel chronograph movement produced exclusively for Longines. Its semi-glossy black dial is decorated with Arabic numerals coated with SuperLuminova©, and displays a small second hand at 9 o'clock as well as a 12-hour counter at 6 o'clock. The oversized 30-minute counter at 3 o'clock adds a touch of aesthetic originality to this timepiece. A domed crystal and a brown leather watch strap add vintage elegance to the piece.
