Mine was a joke, as they are obsessed by putting date windows in watches from the 30s...the rest of the execution looks spotless (perhaps the ages radium might have been more less glossy like in the old Spirit or in the Istituto Idrografico Marina Militare)..here there's another still with a pair of MkVIII googles:Thank God it's a good size too at 41mm. Longines is bringing good stuff out.
One is a picture the other an actual watch.
I think the original watch was military issued (for pilots???) and it was worn on the back side of the wrist over the flight suit. To check the time, simply turn the wrist over and dial is in the correct orientation for easy time reading.Can someone explain how the angle of the watch face is supposed to be more useful than it would be in a 'standard' orientation? Is it supposed to make the crown easier to adjust while the watch is being worn? I can't figure out the practical benefit otherwise. It's certainly not easier (IMO) to read.
Oh on the contrary... poop colour was very fashionable at that time.If it's meant to look like and old watch, why doesn't it look like the old watch did when new?
Why "age" a new release, surely that watch did not have (have pardon my French) poop colored lume when new.
