Longines Skin Diver Watch
Longines is bringing its first diver watch from 1959 back to life.
The Longines historic collection regularly serves as the brand’s inspiration for the creation of new models, in particular its Heritage re-editions. Today, Longines is breathing new life into its first diver watch, a 1959 piece that was introduced at a time when water sports were becoming extremely popular. Reliable and elegant, the model would be a great success among diving enthusiasts.

The new Longines Skin Diver Watch derives its essence from this timepiece and reflects its sleek aesthetic while benefiting from the brand’s watchmaking expertise. It features high-performing, contemporary technical characteristics, such as sapphire crystal, a screwed-in crown and back for water resistance up to 300 metres, and a highly reliable automatic L888 calibre (ETA A31.L01), produced exclusively for Longines and offering a 64-hour power reserve.

The Longines Skin Diver Watch has the sober aesthetic typical of diver watches. Its 42mm steel case is characterised by its unidirectional bezel coated in black PVD and enhanced with markers, including a luminescent triangle, which serves as the main indicator for calculating immersion time. Its grained black dial, topped with domed sapphire crystal, features indexes, Arabic numerals and hands covered in Super LumiNova® to ensure optimal reading of time in line with the demands of the discipline. Like the original model, a stamped logo illustrating a diver adorns the back of this piece.
Customers can choose between a black rubber strap with a criss-crossed finish, a Milanese-style steel bracelet, or a natural brown leather strap to complete the look of this watch.
