A reimagined version of a 1960s diving watch, The Longines Legend Diver Watch features prominently in the brand’s Heritage line. An icon of the Saint-Imier company’s watchmaking and aesthetic know-how, this timepiece is now available in 36 mm models. Longines thus gives rise to a range of new creations that will adorn the wrists of women and men in search of authenticity or fans of the vintage look.
As with the previous models in this range, the new variations maintain the spirit and clean lines of the original piece, while adopting modern technical features. Colourful creations or faithful replicas of the 1960s timepiece, these new versions will undoubtedly perpetuate the history of a legendary watch.
The new Longines Legend Diver Watch models house a self-winding movement in their 36 mm steel case. Topped by a domed sapphire crystal, the dial is offered in many iterations from shimmering white mother-of-pearl, to a more classic brown or its original black colour. Polished rhodium-plated hands coated with Super-LumiNova® repeat the chorus of time.
As with the model that inspired them, the stamped image of a diver adorns the screwed back of these timepieces.
A Milanese-style steel bracelet subtly emphasizes the simplicity of these watches, while white, brown or black leather straps harmoniously blend with the colours of the dial.
