Footnotes

  • From the 1930s to the 1960s, Longines made many chronographs and developed a reputation for aesthetic and technical quality. But it was in 1936 that Longines applied for the patent of the world's first flyback chronograph: the calibre 13ZN. Born out of the need to make chronograph-resetting easier for pilots, the flyback allowed wearers to press one button and revert the dial to zero in an instant

    Longines have confirmed that this watch matches their records as having been first invoiced on the 13 November 1941 to the company Ostersetzer, the Italian Longines agent at that time.
