You may recall our post last year about the Longines Heritage Military, which was based on a watch supplied to the Military of Defence/ British RAF during WWII (Mil-spec 6B/159) that was given to pilots and supplied by Longines, amongst others. The original Milspec watches featured a white dial with black Arabic numerals, centre seconds, and blued steel non-luminous hands.
Before this there was also a Heritage Military model which was a re-issue based on a Longines Museum piece from 1918.
With an even more similar name, back in 2013 Longines launched the Military Heritage 1938 collection which consisted of three pieces — the three hand, the 24 hour, and the chronograph, all of which featured a matte black dial layout with large white Arabic numerals, a minute track, and lumed hands and indices.

With the lilt of Irish laughter
