To be honest, I still have a small amount of money in my hand and still want to buy a piece I like. This is the normal state of everyone, and so is I. Among the many watch styles, I still prefer the retro style fashion trend, but in general, the price is often proportional to the value. It is not easy to want to have both, and I have to look at them one by one. One by one, for comparison, all the vintage watches have been turned upside down by me, but I still hold my right hand in my left hand, tangled for a long time, holding the two children in my pockets, scratching my ears and cheeks, always not particularly satisfied. Advise me: You can’t have both fish and bear’s paw.
Fortunately, the retro style has become a fashion trend, there are many models, there are still traces to follow. Although in the heart of my mother, I am more worried that the success of retro-style watches will hinder the creative design of many brands in the next few years, but in the 21st century, I am still holding a ‘retro’ banner The proletariat fluttering in the wind (I never pretend).
Longines Classic Reissue Series The Longines Avigation BigEye
Let’s be real, everyone likes good element design, so why not show these useful things with current skills? The key is to attract customers who are nostalgic or simply think that retro is handsome. This is the hard dish!
For example, at the 2017 Inner-Riva Advanced Watch Awards, the Longines Classic Reissue Series The Longines Avigation BigEye conquered all judges and audiences at the scene (excluding me at the time because I didn’t see it), Winning the ‘Best Revival Award’ has also become a new darling of the wrist. There will be a market when there is demand, and there will be production when there is a market. This also shows that there is still a lot of room for development of replica watches. of. So, what are the appeals of this chronograph among many retro-style watches?
Longines is one of the earliest brands to produce vintage-style sports watches. The Avigation BigEye chronograph produced this time looks like a handsome and overbearing military watch. If you look closely, there is still a lot of content. You ca n’t blame me for being small!
Moderate size, handsome classic watches, just like it for no reason! The 41 mm stainless steel case design, sealed back and curved sapphire crystal, and simple brushed dial design, all inspired by the 1930s aviation watch, is a watch recently re-released by the Longines Museum. When comparing the original version with the 2017 BigEye, we saw almost the same element design, including large buttons, the smallest time scale, a segmented time track, and a variety of design elements, all of which have ## $$ #% $ # ……..
1930s Longines Aviation Watch
The case looks relatively simple. Except for the thin steel bezel polished into a mirror, the rest are made of Longines with a common brushed finish on most dials. From a distance, it looks like a piece of dust sealed in the sea. Jewels have a sense of time, and friends who do n’t understand watches may think that it was passed on to me by my grandpa’s grandpa … The lugs are very thick. As an automatic chronograph, it is expected to be about 14.3 mm thick, including the dome Sapphire fits the wrists of men (and me) very well.
The oversized crown and buttons are extraordinarily exaggerated. When viewed individually, it is about 7.5 millimeters. The chronograph button uses a retro cylindrical button design. Although most brands now use square chronograph buttons, this classic replica The engraved section still retains the retro style in this detail.
Unique ‘unbalanced’ dial
Looking at the layout of the dial, you can see how Avigation BigEye gets its name. It consists of three small dials that are clear and intuitive. The large 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock, a small seconds dial at 9 o’clock, and the 6 o’clock position. The 12-hour counter is similar to the Omega Speedmaster. The Speedmaster has a sense of balance, and the size of the left and right chronograph dials on this Longines dial is not uniform, which also causes the weight to tilt to the right. Dynamic asymmetric layout, which is particularly unique and vivid in the design of today’s chronograph dials, which is also the key I like to take it out, because I am non-mainstream.
Take a closer look at the large 30-minute counter, which is divided into 10 parts, and each part is three minutes instead of the five minutes that everyone usually imagines. This needs to be well adjusted, but fortunately I can count It is still acceptable to calculate it in multiple times. This may be a characteristic of the original watch design. Other vintage chronographs have similar specific intervals to help pilots make standard time turns (usually two minutes) or to help with long distance phone calls. This replica watch keeps it intact Came down.
The deep matte black dial on the dial is in sharp contrast to the silver or white hour markers, which should make most flying watch enthusiasts comfortable and familiar. The simple and clear reading is also designed on demand. In addition, the tail end of the central chronograph hand is designed in the shape of a teardrop. This aesthetic is extended to the minute indicator hands with a luminous coating, which are distinguished from each other. These functions are visually integrated to form a complete.
Equipped with a wild brown pin buckle strap, comfortable and beautiful, at least I like it very much. Although it looks more ordinary, matching this strap with any dial may get unexpected results. This Avigation BigEye is also very suitable for matching with the canvas material strap, which will greatly change the ‘feel’ of the watch. If you wear a beautiful shiny black strap, it must be ‘cool’.
The sturdy steel bottom is engraved with the outline of the aircraft, a tribute to the classic aviation style, although you can’t always tell others, look! My watch bottom! However, there was still a little flirtation in my heart. The movement uses the L688.2 (ETA A08.L01) column-wheel chronograph movement, which has a power reserve of 54 hours, and the number of oscillations per hour is 28,800. So far, the L688.2 maintains excellent performance. The timing button It also has comfortable tactile click operations and is very responsive.
In the end, Longines Avigation BigEye is another improvement of the resurgence of the main Swiss brand. According to the current trend, the new retro wave will never wear off. This Longines replica watch has a competitive price and is easy to wear. The attractiveness, solid movement, good size and the appearance of award-winning smart applications have been slowly updated to trendy among many retro enthusiasts. It has allowed me to experience some retro aesthetics, this asymmetric dial It’s very interesting in the chronograph of the dial layout, for those who want to add some unique elements to their chronograph, or for those who pursue fashion, this is very timely. The price of the watch is RMB20,800
