The reinvented Longines Pilot Majetek is a rugged timepiece suitable for any adventure and every latitude.
Longines – the emblematic Swiss brand with the winged hourglass logo, and 190 years of horological expertise under its belt – is proving to be on a winning streak with its recent reinventions of historic timepieces from its prestigious back catalogue.
The latest is a modern take on its 1935 pilot’s watch, the Pilot Majetek. Originally designed for aviators, this watch has in the past attracted a wider audience seeking a reliable, robust, precise and easy-to-read timepiece – and that’s exactly what the new release is, albeit with even bigger dimensions.
Measuring 43mm across in diameter, the updated version nonetheless sits extremely comfortably on a large wrist due to its ergonomic curves around the iconic cushion case. The distinctive fluorescent mobile triangle marker is a key feature as a “starting time indicator” on a smoothly rotating bezel, to measure elapsed time. The cool matte black dial offers optimum legibility against lume-coaed white Arabic numerals and Rhodium-tipped baton hands.
Powered by the exclusive Longines L893.6 calibre equipped with a magnetically resistant silicon balance spring, the new Longines Pilot Majetek has a 72-hour power reserve, and comes with three rugged strap options – brown leather, green leather or khaki green NATO strap.
