    Looks like a 'Hour Angle'.

    Yes it's longines hour angle Lindbergh edition , but all others I have seen have hinged case back and different movement. The seller told me its one of the variants from 1980 s.

    There were two models I recall, the 'hunter back' was larger.

    Definitely a more modern version. The movement is an ETA 2892 or derivative. You should be able to estimate its age from the exact calibre designation under the balance: 2892 (1975-1983), 2892-2 (1983-2000) or 2892-A2 (1999-present).

    Here is the original, in a 1933 copy of the French pilot's magazine, "L'Aeronautique".

    The larger, 48mm, had an ETA A07L01, an incredable looking watch.
