Today, therefore, this Longines Spirit Zulu Time is part of this vein of watches for explorers, great travelers and pilots.
This model features a bezel enhanced with a colored ceramic insert (scratchproof) and is available on a matt black, microblasted anthracite or sunray blue dial, with a date window now placed at 6 o’clock. Its hands and numerals, covered with Superluminova, allow optimal reading in all circumstances, even in the darkness of a cockpit.
As with most GMT calibers, the hour hand moves independently of the 24-hour hand. Reading the additional time zone (in full hours only) is done using the 24-hour hand as well as a bidirectional rotating bezel also graduated over 24 hours (which allows the momentary display of a 3th time zone).
