In the 1950s Longines supplied watches to Swissair, Switzerland's national airline. These timepieces, which had been developed specifically from the brand’s aviator watches, had a very distinctive 24-hour dial.

This technical characteristic was ideal for navigators who, at the time, had to determine the position of the aircraft and set up a flight plan.

The Swiss watchmaker has now reissued this watch for both historical and functional reasons, as well as for its aesthetic appeal. The new version has been named Longines Twenty-Four Hours.
