Longines presented a new version of its Longines Legend Diver Replica, a reissue of a 1960s diving replica watch from 1960. Part of the Heritage line, this new Legend Diver model combines the style codes and design elements typical of the era with a black PVD coating which gives the replica watch a new modern look.
The lines of the original have been preserved but the new replica watch is now equipped with updated technical characteristics.
The boxed glass is made of sapphire crystal and the two screw-in crowns and screw-down back guarantee a remarkable water resistance to 30 bar (around 300 metres / 1,000 feet).
The bidirectional internal turning diving 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, coated 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 42 mm steel case, whose screw-down back is decorated with an embossed illustration of a diver, houses an automatic mechanical movement that is exclusive to Longines, the Calibre L888.2 (ETA A31.L01) beating at 25,200 vibrations per hours with a power reserve of 64 hours.
A Milanese-style black rubber strap equipped with a folding titanium clasp treated with black PVD and an integrated diving extension complete this timepiece.
