Majetek Vojenske Spravy Czech Air Force pilots wore this Longines model from 1938 onwards. The back is engraved with "MAJETEK VOJENSKE SPRAVY- 3346c". The first series was replaced by a more modern version in 1939; this was antimagnetic and thus much better adapted for the use on aircrafts. A further enhancement of the 1939 model are the fluorescent hands on a black dial replacing the previous white enamel dial which was too fragile. The inscription on the back was first introduced in the 1939 version.
