For sale is my Longines Hour Angle Lindbergh automatic watch, produced by Longines as an homage to the watch designed by Lindbergh himself as a navigational aid and scaled down from the original size of 47mm to a more manageable 38mm dia.

The watch dates from the early nineties and is in unworn mint condition, runs well and is powered by the Longines L989.2 movement. Housed in a polished stainless steel case of 38mm dia. with 20mm lugs and 43mm overall lug to lug, a flat sapphire crystal combines to give it an overll height of 9mm. The bi-directional rotating outer bezel is finished in gold and features engraved arabics filled blue and black, the dial features a rotating central disc which is operated from the "date" position on the crown. The caseback is transparent with a half hunter design polished closure.
