Longines - Lindbergh Hour Angle Watch 90th Anniversary

Ninety years ago, a young American pilot named Charles A. Lindbergh completed the first ever non-stop solo transatlantic flight.


On May 20, Lindbergh took off in a single-engine purpose-built Ryan monoplane - the Spirit of St. Louis - from Roosevelt Field, near New York City, at 7:52 A.M. He landed at Le Bourget Field, near Paris, thirty-three and a half hours later. He had flown more than 3,600 miles (5,790 kilometres).

As official timekeeper for the World Air Sports Federation, Longines contributed to the homologation of this prowess by timing Lindbergh’s flight and adding it to the list of aviation records.

Shortly thereafter, a close collaboration between the aviator and the brand produced the Longines Hour Angle watch. Designed by Charles Lindbergh himself in partnership with Longines, this watch allowed for accurate determination of the longitude during long-distance flights so helping pilots and navigators to find their geographic location quickly and with accuracy.

The original Hour Angle Watch, designed in partnership with Charles Lindbergh and displayed at the Longines Museum in Saint-Imier


This year, Longines commemorates the 90th anniversary of Charles Lindbergh’s feat and of its timekeeping by releasing the Lindbergh Hour Angle Watch 90th Anniversary, a new edition of the legendary timepiece in a numbered series limited to 90 watches.

Equipped with a rotating bezel that allows for correction of the equation of time and a rotating central dial that allows for synchronization to the second, this timepiece indicates the hour angle in degrees and in minutes of arc in addition to indicating hours, minutes and seconds.


The understated brushed silver dial displays the time on a “railtrack” minute circle with painted Roman numerals and features a 180° scale for calculating the longitude.

The synchronization of the second hand with a radio time signal is accomplished using the galvanic black rotating central dial, while the black PVD steel rotating bezel allows for daily variations in the time equation to be taken into account.

Water resistant to 30 metres / 100 feet, the Grade 5 titanium case of the 90th Anniversary Lindbergh Hour Angle Watch has a diameter of 47.5 mm, just like the original timepiece, and is adorned with a large steel crown that is easy to wind or set, even with gloved fingers.


Inside, the L699 automatic calibre beats at 28,800 vibrations per hour and offers a power reserve of 46 hours.

The brown leather aviator-type strap equipped with an extension that allows the watch to be attached to an oversized pilot’s jacket adds the final touch.

The Longines Lindbergh Hour Angle Watch 90th Anniversary (ref. L2.678.1.71.0) has a suggested retail price of around Euro 5,100 / US$ 5,000. longines.com
