Longines Avigation Special Series

Manage to get an Avigation Special Series for a good price. Everything works well so far. Running fast about 2 to 3s per day. Only thing busted was the leather strap. Currently have it on the only usable 21mm strap that l have while I search for a better more matching one.

I believe this piece is from around year 2000. The movement still have the Eta logo and the Movement 2894-2 etched on it. Will be sending it off for full service soon. Really like the size and thinness compared to 7750 movements as I have a small wrist.

By the way what kinda leather strap and colour should I go for? Was thinking one of those IWC type with rivets and white stitching but not sure to go black or dark/ coffee brown.

Super cool! I've never seen that one before, but I like it a lot. Ultra legible, just like a pilot watch should be, imo

Yeah it's a very legible and thin pilot chronograph. The current Avigation series is the bigeye which is too thick and little too much/busy for me.
