In 2013, Longines launched a new watch, the Military Military 1938. The model refers to the military watch used in the Second World War in the late 1930s. The new Longines eritage Military 1938 watch has hours, minutes, seconds, and date display, second time zone GMT and 24-hour indication and date indication, and a chronograph with date indication. All new watches debut at Basel International Jewellery 2013 Watches and clocks exhibition.
The appearance of the watch has a low-key appearance like a real military watch, and the only goal that moves people is only one: function. All three watches have the same black dial and large Arabic numerals with a luminous display. The dial design of the GMT and the chronograph version is more complicated, and the white hour marks are printed on the black dial to contrast.
All three watches have a stainless steel case, faithful to the military prototype material. The black dial is very conspicuous, with date display.
The first thing GMT watches to see is the red arrow hand indicating the second time zone. The second time zone is marked on the concave edge of the case, and the date is displayed at 3 o’clock.
Chronograph—42mm watch with 30-minute chronograph dial at 3 o’clock and small seconds at 9 o’clock. The 6 o’clock position is a date display, with a touch of vintage in elegance.
