Longines Twenty-Four Hours – The Watch used by Swissair Navigators

by Time&Style Staff

Swiss watchmaker, Longines, has re-released a classic timepiece that was initially issued only to Swissair navigators in the 1950s, the Longines Twenty-Four Hours, which as the name implies is a 24-hour watch.

Originally, the watch compensated for periods of time where navigators would be unable to gauge the time of day accurately while changing time zones.

The Longines Twenty-Four Hour is being released for historical and functional purposes with engraving on the inside of the cover, “Re-Edition of a Longines navigation watch exclusively made for Swissair navigators, 1953-1956.”  This timepiece is an elegant and unique piece of craftsmanship and history.
