"Longines’ highly regarded remakes of vintage watches tend to be faithful to the original and modestly priced. Most, however, tend to have tweaks – typically the addition of a date window – that mark them out instantly as modern watches. The Avigation BigEye chronograph, on the other hand, is competently vintage in style and feel.

The BigEye – named after its extra-large minute register – is based on a vintage original that Longines acquired from a collector, according to the brand’s President in a late 2017 interview with Australian publication Time+Tide Watches. Little else is known about the original, Longines has been cagey about its origins, though the look is familiar, being typical of 1970s aviation chronographs like a late-series Breguet Type XX."
