Longines The Longines Legend Diver Watch
Today, Longines celebrates the 10th anniversary of this reissue of the Legend Diver Watch, by offering a new version with a Milanese mesh bracelet.
With 185 years of rich history, Longines likes to revisit historical pieces that helped it achieve its reputation. An iconic piece from the watchmaking brand’s Heritage line, the Longines Legend Diver Watch is the reissue of a diving watch from 1960. While retaining the codes and design typical of the sixties, Longines has put its current expertise at the service of this contemporary edition to guarantee its high performance.
Longines has always associated its name with the prestigious exploits of pioneers who sought to push the boundaries of performance ever further, and in particular in the discoveries of underwater environments. Originally produced at a time when underwater exploration and military and sports diving flourished, the lines of the original watch are now repeated, including the domed crystal, reminiscent of the technical limitations of the time.
But while preserving the sixties spirit of this legendary timepiece, Longines has given this piece contemporary and performance-oriented technical features: a sapphire crystal, and screwed crown and back to guarantee a water-resistance rating of 300 m, or even an internal bidirectional rotating disc for divers. The latter – the flange – is activated and locked by one of the crowns, thus making it possible to determine the remaining bottom time.
The indexes, digits and hands, covered with Super-LumiNova®, stand out against the black lacquered dial to offer optimum readability, further sharpened by the simple and clear typography of the 3, 6, 9 and 12 digits. The 42-mm stainless steel box houses an L633 automatic mechanical movement and sports an engraving of a diver on its screwed back. This piece is available in either a rubber, cowhide or new Milanese watch strap.
Based in St. Imier since 1832, Longines has a long tradition in watchmaking, characterised by the elegance of its watches. Using expertise gained as the company has evolved, Longines has gradually forged ties with the world of sport, where it demonstrates its excellence in precision timekeeping. Today, Longines is the oldest brand still in business, unchanged, in the international registers held by the World Intellectual Property Organization...Find out more >
