The Longines Avigation Watch Type A-7 was inspired by models developed during the 1930s that had to meet extremely stringent criteria from the point of view of appearance, quality and precision in order to be selected by aviators and bear the name "Type A-7" given by the U.S. Army. Their large diameter and fluted crown enabled them to be easily read and quickly manipulated, even if the pilot was wearing thick gloves. The angled black dial with its large white numerals also ensured easy reading in poor light or turbulence. The angle of the dial was specially designed for the chronograph to be worn on the inside of the wrist. This meant that the dial was aligned with the aircraft's instruments and the pilot could read the timepiece without moving his or her arm or letting go of the controls.
The racy elegance of The Longines Avigation Watch Type A-7, a single push-piece chronograph immediately catches the eye. The steel case has an impressive diameter of 49 mm and houses an L788 calibre, a column-wheel movement developed exclusively for Longines. The dial is angled at 50° to the right and features large white Arabic numerals, all of which make up the exceptional character of this timepiece. Its sleek appearance is enhanced by the tachometer scale around the outer edge of the dial and the Breguet minute and hour hands. The whole is mounted on a black alligator strap. The intricate workings of this exceptional piece can be admired through the hinged cover on the sapphire glass back.
