Reviews 5 stars rating

Longines Avigation BigEye Men's Black Chronograph Watch is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding quality equivalent to watches costing multiple times more and has heritage to boot. The watch is a reissue of an historic Longines aviation watch and when launched in 2017, was the winner of the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) in the revival category. Fans of the brand might remember Longines launching in 2011 an upgraded version of the Valjoux 7750 chronograph movement with a column wheel and tri-compax dial layout, that movement, exclusive to Longines and dubbed the L688, is used again here but this time in a military-style pilots watch. Despite a superficial resemblance to the Breguet Type XX, the original watch that this model is based on, predates the Breguet by some 30-years and Longines has its own heritage to draw upon in this regard. The case is impeccably finished and has a subtle combination of brushed and polished details. Longines is one of the best kept secrets,with access to some of the best higher volume production facilities and exclusive movement upgrades, the fit and finish is excellent. Time keeping accuracy out of the box, with my example, is within chronometer specifications despite this model not being chronometer certified. Upscale features of the watch include the box section sapphire crystal which resembles acrylic in profile and is of the kind normally only found on high end watches; and the dial which has very pleasing differences in texture between the main dial and the sub registers, it also appears to curve towards the edge which may be due to the crystal. The watch punches well above its weight and is a delight to a collector. The only reasons not to recommend it are that some might find the military / aviation aesthetic too spartan, or, they may desire the caché of higher priced brands.
