Military Watch / Longines


The simply-named Longines Military Watch was inspired by an early 1940s pilot’s piece that was supplied to the Royal Air Force during World War II. The dial of the simply but aptly named Military Watch  bears what is easily one of the most impressive applications of fauxtina that I’ve ever seen. Not only is the colour spot on, but the surface also has the tell-tale irregularities that come with age and use. Or at least facsimiles of them. On each beige dial there is a faint pattern of dots that have been applied at random, so that no two will ever look exactly the same. It’s a dial very typical of military watches from the 1940s, with a font that distinctly recalls the period and a railroad chapter ring for the minutes. The Longines Military Watch will be available in the second half of 2018 for a price of CHF 2,000 — via Hodinkee
