Longines Spirit Zulu Time

The new Longines Spirit Zulu Time writes a new chapter in rich history of multipurpose instruments for pilots and travellers.

Longines has more than 100 years of expertise in the development of timepieces indicating different time zones. The brand watchmakers introduced the first Longines pocket watch indicating two time zones in 1908. The first timepiece of a long series, mainly aimed at the aeronautics sector, highlighting the pioneering role that Longines plays in this field.

Sometimes our sense of adventure takes us far beyond regular pace. That is the very reason why we built a new piece that masters time zones so that modern explorers never lose track of time.

The new Longines Spirit Zulu Time houses an exclusive new in-house calibre with a silicon balance-spring which guarantees the accurate indication of time zones. A state-of-the-art technology that allows the hour hand to be adjusted independently of the GMT indicator. Additional time zones are read using a 24-hour hand and a bidirectional rotating bezel, also graduated over 24 hours.

Many adventurers have crossed the world’s time zones with a Longines watch on their wrist, making the impossible a reality. Renowned aviators including Amy Johnson, Clyde Pangborn and Hugh Herndon conquered the air and set new records – all with Longines’ assistance.

On 5th October 1931 Clyde Pangborn and Hugh Herndon, Jr., two daring American aviators, completed the world’s first nonstop, transpacific flight from Japan to the United States. They took off and landed 41 hours later in Wenatchee, Washington, having covered a distance of 5,500 miles. At the time, it was the longest flight ever made over water.

A link between history and innovation, an exceptional timepiece to be used by all modern pioneers.

The perfect combination of a strong aesthetic and state-of-the-art technology.
