Longines Spirit Flyback Chronograph

In the last two years the “Longines Spirit” collection has really proven to be a success story for the brand. Since it came on the scene Longines has already released several editions. Much of the appeal comes from combining historical references to the brand’s aviation past with modern enhancements. Like the latest “Longines Spirit Flyback Chronograph” which comes equipped with flyback function. The 42mm case is made of stainless-steel with a mix of brushed surfaces and accents with a polished finish. Mounted to the case is a bi-directional rotating bezel with black or blue ceramic insert with a 60m scale and a Super-LumiNova triangle.On the flipside is a sapphire exhibition caseback that allows a view into the inner workings of the mechanical movement. It features an oscillating weight decorated with the atlas globe lines.It comes equipped with two piston style pushers to operate the chronograph functions, with a knurled screw-in crown embossed with the Longines logo. The flyback function allows users to reset the chronograph without having to stop it first, which allows for faster and more accurate measurements. This differs from standard chronographs that need separate activation for stopping, resetting, and restarting the timing function, while the “Spirit Flyback” can enable all those commands with a single button. All topped by a domed sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating on both sides. Water-resistance can reach up to 100 meters (330 feet).Time is exhibited on either a black or blue sunray brushed dial with applied Arabic numerals that have small cut-out diamond index markers beside them; while circling around the flange is a 60-minute scale with seconds/minutes markings. There are two sub-dials with snailed interiors: a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock and a sub-seconds at the 9 o’clock position.Much like the retro-inspired “Longines Spirit” model, this “Flyback” variant also features the Longines winged hourglass on the upper-half of the dial, while the lower-half features five applied stars in row and the “CHRONOMETER” inscription. The central sword-shaped hand and Arabic numerals have all been fitted with a luminescent filling, for an enhanced legibility.
