A new edition of the Majetek, however now in titanium, the Longines Pilot Majetek Pioneer Edition. It is almost exactly the same watch as the Longines Pilot Majetek the brand released in 2023, only that first model has a stainless steel case while this new Pioneer Edition comes in titanium. And this is a limited edition of 1,935 pieces.

The titanium somehow gives this old new pilot a vintage appearance, as if it has aged steel. Looks great, especially when you know it’s a kind of a remake from a 1935 pilot’s watch from Longines. Which is a 1930s Czech pilot’s watch with a cushion shaped case, fluted rotating bezel with start/departure indicator and small seconds at 6 o’clock. Which all comes back in this new Majetek, Czech for Military Property, as well.

The Longines Pilot Majetek Pioneer Edition has a power reserve of 72 hours

Longines adjusted ETA’s caliber A31.L91 to their Longines caliber L893.6, with a silicon balance spring among other improvements. The movement is COSC certified and provides a sufficient power reserve of 72 hours.

This new Longines Pilot Majetek Pioneer Edition comes on a so called technical fabric strap, in black. The tongue buckle is from grade 5 titanium. We would instantly buy a green NATO as well as it looks very well on this watch. The solid case back has the limited number engraved plus some core specs of the watch.
