Longines Avigation BigEye Chronograph
A watch with inspirations shrouded in a bit of mystery, the Longines Avigation BigEye Chronograph is, as the story goes, a watch based on a ‘30s-era Longines that was brought to the brand by a private collector. Whatever its origins, the Avigation BigEye is one of 2017’s hottest releases, with the watch winning the Prize in the “Revival” category at the GPHG. Accolades aside, this retro-inspired chronograph stands on its own with a design you won’t really see anywhere else nowadays, with the enlarged “big eye” sub-dial at three and the elongated pushers stealing the show. Stay tuned for a review of this one on Worn & Wound.
