Longines Avigation Big Eye

It's no surprise that Longines has an endless treasure trove of watch designs to draw from, the company has tons of watches to reference from their 185 year history and their latest is inspired by a classic pilot's watch from the 1930s. 

The Avigation BigEye has an easy-to-read dial with large, SuperLuminova-coated Arabic numerals and a chronograph with a central 60-second hand, a 30-minute counter at 3 o'clock, and a 12-hour counter at 6 o'clock. 

The movement is an ETA-based automatic with a column wheel chronograph and a power reserve of 54 hours. Other features include a 41mm steel case, sand-blasted and rhodium-plate hands, domed sapphire crystal with several layers of anti-reflective coating, and a brown calf leather strap.
