Watch Description

Limited & Numbered Edition to 200 pieces world-wide.The Weems watch from Longines, in commemoration of Lt. Cdr. Philip Van Horn Weems, U.S. Navy. In May 1919, eight years before Lindbergh’s famous solo flight, three small planes set out from Newfoundland headed for London in an attempt to make the first trans-Atlantic flight. Only one of them made it. Twenty-five hundred feet below on board a station tracking ship, a young navigator, Lt. Cdr. Philip Van Horn Weems, U.S. Navy, gazed up and thought there must be a safer and simpler way than using a small armada of ships as beacons for the flight. Lt. Cdr. Weems, a brilliant, inventive and determined young man knew as he tracked that first flight that navigation was his destiny, and he went on to revolutionize the field with his ideas, writings and inventions of navigational instruments. The challenge he undertook was complex and involved the invention of new methods and new precision tools and navigational instruments. It required a horizon system independent of the sea horizon that was often not visible from the cockpit of a plane. Weems worked for years to develop a new kind of sextant and to find someone to manufacture it. When an accurate timepiece was needed, Weems invented the Second Setting Watch with its inner rotating dial. He produced the famous Weems Plotter, the more precise and easier-to-use plotting tool, which is still one of our most popular plottersThis watch features:

Polished solid 18kt rose gold case.

Hinged flip open case back to a transparent case back. Engraved in script on the inside of the case back is "Longines Weems Second-Setting Watch, N° xxx, In Commemoration of, Lt. Commander P.V.H. Weems, Inventor in 1927 of the, Weems System of Navigation, US Pat. 2'008'734, Automatic, 18k Gold, Waterresistant Swiss Made".
