Longines, a brand with over 190 years of heritage, is renowned for its iconic pilot’s and explorer’s instrument watches that combine cutting-edge technical features with timeless aesthetics. In keeping with this tradition, Longines has introduced the Pilot Majetek Box Edition, a watch designed for aviation enthusiasts and appreciated by a wider audience.
The Pilot Majetek Box Edition is a perfect example of how Longines combines historical design codes with contemporary expertise to deliver precision and reliability. The watch is inspired by the 1935 Longines “Majetek” model and features a bi-directional fluted bezel mounted on a cushion-shaped steel case. The case has a commemorative plate marked “1935” at 9 o’clock, concealing a newly patented gear mechanism that guarantees water resistance of up to 10 bar (100 m).
The watch’s revised proportions, original slightly curved cushion shape, and rounded lugs are in keeping with current trends. The 43 mm diameter ensures excellent wearer comfort, while the matte black dial offers optimum legibility. The white Arabic numerals coated with Super-LumiNova® old radium, the railway minute marker, and the rhodium-tipped baton hands are all designed to enhance legibility. The oversized small seconds dial at 6 o’clock, along with the fluted bezel, is a reminder of the watch’s original functional character.
The Longines Pilot Majetek Box Edition is powered by the exclusive Longines L893.6 calibre equipped with a magnetically resistant silicon balance spring. The watch has a 72-hour power reserve and is chronometer-certified by the Controle Officiel Suisse des Chronometres (COSC), an independent control body. The watch comes with a two-stitch strap in a choice of brown or green leather with beige topstitching. A NATO-type strap made of polyester fibre created from recycled materials is also available.
The Longines Pilot Majetek Box Edition is a perfect combination of historical design codes and contemporary expertise. It is ideal for everyday wear and for all upcoming adventures, at any and every latitude.
