Legend Diver Watch
Longines has chosen to revisit some of its iconic references of the past. The new Longines Legend Diver is inspired by the brands’ 1960s diving watch; maintaining the style codes and design elements typical of the era. Only this time, the reinterpretation comes in black PVD-treated steel and houses the exclusive L888 caliber.
The basics of the watch still stay the same. For example, two crowns on the right side of the case, the boxed glass and the bidirectional internal turning diving bezel, which serve as reminders of the technical limitations of the era. The bezel is activated and stopped by the crown located at 2 o’clock, allowing the wearer to determine the remaining dive time.
The indexes, numerals and hands, adorned with Super LumiNova®, pop from the black lacquered dial for optimum legibility, which is further enhanced by the plain, clean typeface used for the numerals 6, 9 and 12. The steel case is coated with a 42 mm layer of black PVD, and contains an automatic mechanical movement that is exclusive to Longines, with the illustration of a diver engraved on the screw-down back. A Milanese-style black rubber strap equipped with a folding titanium clasp treated with black PVD and an integrated diving extension completes this timepiece.
