Longines Legend Diver Watch
Longines expands its Heritage line of watch collection by presenting a reissue of an iconic diving watch from 1960.
The lines of the original watch are 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 with rubber, cowhide or Milanese watch strap.
