I agree . I've been considering the Omega Speedmaster for a while ,but I never warmed up to that watch . This Longines Big Eye has a funkiness and coolness assiciated with the unique design . Plus the performance of the movement is superb .

it is one of the best blues ever in a watch

For a daily, black. For a fun one, blue.

Tough choice but a pilot would always choose the black. This watch being a flieger, black is always appropriate.

Got the black. I find it closest to the original and has better legibility. 馃槈

I would happily take either, but I don't have a titanium watch or a blue dial watch so this covers a few bases.

Would this watch really be considered a flieger? Seems like at minimum the 12 has to be a triangle.

The blue & brown & black makes what's already a busy watch too busy imo. Blacked out walks a nice balance

IMHO, any pilot watch can loosely be called a "flieger" which comes from the German word "fliegen" or flying.

Strictly speaking the term refers to WWII pilot watches and to your point, watches of a specific style.

Longines has a long history producing watches for aviation, including this watch.
