Lindbergh's Atlantic Voyage Watch

In 1933, the pilot Charles Lindbergh flew 47,000 km around the north Atlantic in the company of his wife to explore possible future air routes. The equipment he needed on this long expedition included a specially-designed Longines wristwatch chronograph, an exceptional timepiece that the winged hourglass brand has replicated in tribute to this historic voyage.
