Longines Heritage Military 1938

Post by koimaster » November 25th 2019, 5:28pm

Today we are bundling two new Heritage Collection releases from Longines together. The first of these is the most recent, that of the limited edition Military 1938.

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

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
