Pioneering Time Zones: The new Longines Spirit Zulu Time
Longines SpiritPioneering Time Zones
The new Longines Spirit Zulu Time houses an exclusive new in-house calibre with a silicon balance-spring which guarantees the accurate indication of time zones. A state-of-the-art technology that allows the hour hand to be adjusted independently of the GMT indicator. Additional time zones are read using a 24-hour hand and a bidirectional rotating bezel, also graduated over 24 hours.

PAUL-EMILE VICTOR Explorer
Up to -400 for 49 days Paul-Emile Victor spent 7 weeks crossing the Greenland ice cap in 1936. Even in the harshest weather conditions, his Longines chronometers continued to work accurately, helping him to calculate longitude. “These watches made the difference between failure and success” Victor later stated. He devoted his whole life to polar expeditions. The only thing we are sure to fail is that which we do not attempt. Paul-Emile Victor, Explorer
