Here we have a fascinating timepiece from Longines' 'Heritage' line of watches, which essentially consists of reissues of important watches they made throughout the last 100 or so years.

 

This one is based on the 'Majetek' watches produced for the Czech Air Force in the 1930s and has a classic 30s design. 

 

The large black dial is instantly readable with bold printed white numerals and lume filled hands. The hands are similar but differ slightly to the original. The stainless steel case design is essentially identical face on (other than being 1mm wider than the original and fractionally slimmer) The lug width is 22mm where the orignal was 24mm.

 

The biggest difference is the date wheel added at 6 and the seconds dial therefore moved up the dial slightly.

 

The case has a completely polished finish, other than the case back. This gives the watch a big presence on the wrist.

 

This watch was made in limited numbers of 1935 and is scarcely seen for sale.

 

Fitted with the original black Longines leather strap and presented with the original box but n paperwork.
