Longines Avigation BigEye Leather Strap Luminous Three Slim Dials Fake Watches UK

Swiss watch maker Longines has been among the many brands in recent years to dive deeply into the “heritage reissue” well. This time, they have released a vintage-inspired pilot’s watch which pays tribute to their longstanding history with aviation. The Longines Avigation BigEye replica watches features aesthetics borrowed from several of their vintage aviation and military pieces as well as modern watchmaking technology including a column wheel chronograph caliber, a highly domed, anti-reflective sapphire crystal, and Super-LumiNova coating for the hour markers and hands.

Designed to complement the ever growing Longines Heritage collection, the new Longines Avigation BigEye is in keeping with Longines’ recent penchant for gently updating historical models while keeping the design language much the same. In this case, the Longines Museum’s recent acquisition of a pilot’s watch they produced in the 1930s provided the impetus for the new model, and the new dial shares certain design cues with its predecessor.

The semi-glossy black dial is a fairly straightforward and traditional aviation design with Super-LumiNova-coated Arabic hour markers and bead-blasted, rhodium-plated hands which should be familiar to Longines fans. A running seconds register sits at 9 o’clock while a twelve hour counter rests at the 6 o’clock position. An oversized thirty minute sub dial at 3 o’clock serves as the focal point for the dial, and the source of the BigEye name. Refreshingly, no date window has been inserted where it doesn’t belong and the dial is a clean and highly legible affair.

Aviation Longines limited edition copy watches are known for large, utilitarian cases and the Longines Avigation BigEye’s case is pure tool watch, though not terribly large by today’s standards at a reasonable 41mm in width. Case surfaces are mostly brushed with the exception of the narrow, highly polished bezel sitting just beneath the well-executed highly domed and anti-reflective coated crystal. The polished crown and pushers are also oversized as an homage to the oversized controls of pilot’s watches of years past where the design was intended to make for easy use with heavy flyer’s gloves. Somewhat surprisingly, despite the intricate movement ticking within, Longines have foregone an exhibition caseback in favor of a special aviation-inspired caseback engraving.

Longines luminous copy watches state that the self-winding mechanical column wheel L688.2 caliber used in the Avigation BigEye is produced specially for them by ETA (who call the movement the ETA A08.L01). Column wheel chronograph calibers are typically more respected by fans of vintage watchmaking and watchmaking in general for their highly mechanical and positive feel at the pushers and more intricate internal workings. The 27-jewel L688.2 beats at a familiar 28,800 bph and features a not insignificant 54-hour power reserve.

Announced last fall, the Longines Heritage Military COSD replica watches UK continues Longines’ run of producing reissue-style pieces that connect with various sporting designs of their past. While the past few years have seen a substantial increase in the trendiness of vintage-inspired designs, Longines was arguably in the first wave of this trend when they launched the Legend Diver back in 2007. Now, some nine years later, we find a market full of “new vintage” watches – with their faux lume, hugely domed crystals, and gilt dials calling us back to a time before quartz really messed up the joint. To a somewhat similar effect, we have the new Longines Heritage Military COSD, a field watch styled after a legacy Longines model worn by British Paratroopers in the later years of WWII.

To begin, let’s take a brief look at the original model, a few of which appear to occasionally trade hands online and at auction. While there isn’t exactly a wealth of information to be found, the original reference 2340 was 36mm diameter Longines fake watches in nickel plated brass with a silver-white arabic 12/24-hour dial, a hand-wound Longines 12.68N movement, welded lugs, and an oversized crown. The “COSD” naming comes from Company Ordnance Supply Depot, and these watches carried the MOD (British Ministry of Defense) Arrow on the dial, the mark of a watch issued for use in the British Military. Reports suggest that the 2340 was created in 1944 and that some were issued after the end of World War II.
So, the Longines’ Paratrooper, as it is most commonly known, is a somewhat distinctive field watch design with a smattering of military history. It’s of little wonder then, that Longines decided to design a new version for their modern Heritage line up, the same line that brought us the Legend Diver and the 1967 Heritage Diver Chronograph. The modern Longines Heritage Military COSD uses a 40mm steel case that is some 10mm thick and stretches 52.1mm lug to lug. The crown, which does not screw down, is of a more reasonable proportion and the crystal is up to current spec, with the Longines Heritage Military COSD using an anti-reflective sapphire crystal.

The new Longines Heritage Military COSD waterproof replica watches, which comes in a black or silver-tone dial, is a similar rehashing of the original, save for the inclusion of a date window at three and a handset in blued steel (for the silver dial, vs the original 2340’s skeleton handset). Just as with the war-time original, the Longines Heritage Military COSD sports twin 12- and 24-hour markings and a railway minute track lining the outer edge of the dial. The red 24-hour scale adds a nice bit of color that reflects the original and, in another direct nod to the MOD application of the 2340, the Longines Heritage Military COSD bears the same arrow icon below the branding on the dial.
