    The ultimate pilots' watch!?

    This may be the one. Got one in two days ago and I checked it out
    today. The Longines: Lindbergh (L2.678.4.11.2) This one has to be
    checked out. I can't think of any like it, 47mm and with a caliber
    that may be new or brought back; L699. I can't referance it. It's
    big, allmost the size of IWC's Big Pilot. But this one runs slow, 17K bph or 3cps. I though it was a 6498 at first, but it's auto. The Man had a
    hand in the design of the face. The box; gorgeous! Plus, it has a hunter back! This is like a piece of history on your wrist. The price; 4100 USD retail! This one is high on the drool scale. If you have nothing better to do, thunder on down to your local AD. It's worth the trip. (If they
    has one)

    It is a great looking watch. Although, wouldn't the ultimate pilots' watch come equipped with a parachute?

    That one is L2.678.4.11.2.1 and it's only available by special order. Like
    the Breitling Emergency, a waver or liability must be signed before
    purchace. Besides, it doesn't sit on the wrist very well, but there're
    working on it.
