The Longines Heritage 1935 is based on a timepiece originally created for aviators but which went on to prove highly popular among the general public. With its cushion-shaped steel case and fluted crown, this model has an original look that evokes the timepiece on which it is based. As is typical of watches intended for use in aviation, the matt black dial is decorated with large white Arabic numerals and is coated with Super-LumiNova.
With its Longines Heritage 1935 model, the brand has re-issued a watch designed originally for aviators in the Czech Air Force in 1935. Much praised for their reliability and robustness, these watches were soon on sale to the general public. Old advertising for these models claims that they were the most perfect inventions of modern technology, an ideal accessory not only for pilots but also for anyone who had a well-developed taste for sport. In 1935 these watches were seen as the height of technical perfection, housing a robust movement and fitted with a glass said to be unbreakable.
