French Poles Delegation Longines

Paul & middot; Emilvik Expedition
In the second half of the 1940s, the farthest corner of the earth aroused a lot of interest from many people, and public opinion at the time was also fascinated by it. Like other countries, France has established a group to organize expeditions in the Arctic and Arctic countries. Ethnographer and explorer Paul & middot; Emil Victor has spent a lot of time exploring Greenland in the late 1930s, and he was appointed to form and manage this new group. From 1947 to 1976, under the leadership of this ethnographer, Expeditions Polaires Fran aises & ndash; Missions Paul-Emile Victor & ldquo; French bipolar expedition & ndash; Paul & middot; Emil Victor delegation & rdquo; organized 150 voyages to Greenland and Adelie coast.
In order to cope with the harsh conditions of the polar regions, the expedition must be equipped with a considerable amount of equipment. For example, in May 1948, when they set off from Europe, they were equipped with 7 amphibious rail cars, 2 Dakota aircraft, tractors, laboratory trailers, a mobile weather radio station, tents, sleighs and supplies for 30 trucks. For this expedition, the scientists also equipped four Longines chronographs, three of which were set as normal time and one was set as stellar time. The 15 adventurers also wore stainless steel watches made by Longines. The time measuring instrument is mainly used to determine the astronomical position of the expedition (also used to accurately calculate the geodesic). Scientists have written performance reports for these timepieces. The report tells the world that Longines timepiece equipment plays a vital role in the exploration of the world’s furthest regions. As part of a scientific expedition in the middle of the 20th century, Longines traveled to the farthest corners of the world, the north and south poles.

Longines launches & ldquo; French bipolar adventure-Paul-Emil Victor delegation & rdquo; watches
Expeditions Polaires Fran aises & ndash; Missions Paul-Emile Victor & ldquo; French bipolar expedition & ndash; Paul & middot; Emil Victor delegation & rdquo; Longines watch is a stainless steel watch with a central seconds hand. Its central hands, hour markers, numerals and hands are coated with luminous paint. This design was very rare in the 1940s, but it clearly fits the needs of easy reading. Another interesting design is that this Longines with a 12.68N movement has a special shockproof device, which is very different from other conventional devices of this type in Longines.
Now, Longines has decided to re-release this watch that accompanies Expeditions Polaires Fran aises & ndash; Missions Paul-Emile Victor & ldquo; French Polar Expedition & ndash; Paul & middot; Emile Victor’s delegation & rdquo; Far corners & mdash; & mdash; Great expedition for North and South Pole.
