Longines 24- Hour Sin­gle Push Piece Chrono­graph

Plaza Watch International - - Display Case -

Fol­low­ing the mod­ern af­fec­tion for all-things vin­tage, Longines have now in­tro­duced to their Her­itage col­lec­tion the Twenty Four Hour Push Piece Chrono­graph. The new model is a con­tem­po­rary re-is­sue of the brand’s own pe­riod watch, which is cur­rently dis­played in the Longines watch mu­seum in St. Imier, Switzer­land. De­spite a tongue-ty­ing name, the watch it­self is re­mark­ably sim­ple in de­sign. It is in­spired by a 1950s avi­a­tor model that Longines orig­i­nally de­signed as a pocket watch. As it is based on a his­tor­i­cal time­piece, the steel case mea­sures in at an im­pres­sive 47.5mm, which was a typ­i­cal fea­ture on mil­i­tary avi­a­tion watches, as tra­di­tion­ally watches were not worn around the pi­lot’s wrist, but in fact around his thigh.
