Take A Look At The Longines Heritage Diver 43mm Case Replica

More retro-styled Longines mens replica watches? Oh, yes. New for 2014 is this collection of Longines Heritage Diver replica watches that come in two versions, including the Heritage Diver chronograph ref. L2.796.4.52.9 and the Heritage Diver three-hand ref. L2.795.4.52.0. Each of these dive replica watches is inspired by 1970s Longines sport replica watches, and they represent some interesting design features.

The tonneau-style cases in steel are typical of dive replica watches of the era, and it is a look I've personally always enjoyed, though this is one of the few times I've seen them with a 12-sided geometric bezel. As a dive replica watch, the Longines Heritage Diver High Quality Replica Watches has an internal rotating bezel (operated by the crown at 10 o'clock). At 43mm wide, these are not going to wear massively, but are not small replica watches.



Water resistant to 300 meters, the Longines Heritage Diver is a rather capable sport replica watch. There is healthy amount of lume on the dial, as is there 1970s styling, which can sometimes mean "too much color." Nevertheless, the dial of the Heritage Diver is still very functional. Over the dial is an AR-coated sapphire crystal, and I hope that red color isn't quite as bright in person. Actually, if the red was faded or had a bit of an aged look I think it might look a bit nicer.

Inside the Longines Heritage Diver replica watches are Swiss ETA movements with Longines named. Inside the Heritage Diver three-hand is the Longines caliber L633.5 which is an ETA 2824-2 automatic, and the Heritage Diver chronograph has a Longines Caliber L651.3 which is an ETA 2892-2 automatic chronograph movement.

Between the two Longines Heritage Diver models, I prefer the chronograph as it makes better use of the dial and the overall 1970s dive replica watch theme. It is an interesting replica watch, but I still think that Longines is stuck in a retro-rewind and I'd love to see some more contemporary fare from the brand in the future. Having said that, if vintage-style replica watches are selling well, then don't expect too many changes soon.
