Longines Avignation A-7

  Swiss watchmaker Longines has created a stunning new timepiece known as the Longines Avignation Mono-Pusher Chronograph Type A-7 that is uniquely encased within a large 49mm stainless steel case with a mono-pusher located at the unconventional 1 o’clock position.

The most striking feature of this oversized watch is the off centre dial that angles 50 degrees to the right with the hour marker numbered 12 located at the conventional 1 o’clock position with two sub-dials located at the dial’s 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock position. This layout makes this chronograph easier for a pilot to read while his hands are on an aircraft’s control column. Readability is obviously  of paramount importance with all numbers and symbols in white to stand out on the matt black dial.

 This watch is powered by a Swiss automatic Longines in-house calibre L788.2 with a power reserve of 54 hours and decorated in 27 jewels. A black alligator strap with contrasting white stitching topped with a stainless steel buckle makes this watch a classic with an angular twist.
