BaselWorld 2011 Preview: LONGINES Twenty-Four Hours

In the 1950’s, Longines supplied watches to Switzerland’s national airline, Swissair. The company is now re-issuing its aviator watch, the Longines Twenty-Four Hours, with its distinctive 24-hour dial. This feature met the needs of navigators who, at the time, had to determine the position of the aircraft and set up a flight plan. Both historical and functional, it has preserved the original’s strong aesthetic character.
