The Longines Legend Diver watch occupies a special place in the brand’s Heritage segment. Symbolic of the rich heritage of the brand based in Saint-Imier, this range has gradually expanded over the years and now includes a bronze version. Bronze is a living material whose fascination lies in its warm colour and natural patina that changes and becomes more beautiful with time, making each timepiece unique.
Like the collection’s previous models, this new version retains the spirit and clean lines of the original timepiece, while being equipped with up-to-date technical features. Contemporary yet steeped in history, it will beyond a doubt play its own part in the story of a legendary watch that’s a well-known, well-loved collector’s piece.
The latest addition to the brand’s Diver Watch series, houses an automatic movement with silicon balance-spring inside its 42mm bronze and titanium case. Its shaded green lacquered dial is covered with a sapphire crystal box and sports luminous hands, hour markers with squares coated Super-LumiNova and Arabic numerals enhanced with luminescent rectangles for optimal legibility, a reminder of the codes of the sport for which this watch was originally intended. And just like on the original model, the screw-down case back is decorated with an embossed emblem of a diver.
The watch is paired with a brown leather strap finished with beige topstitching, and comes with a second strap in green NATO-type nylon. Every watch comes with a tool for easy swapping of the straps as desired. This version of the Legend Diver watch benefits from a five-year warranty. An emblematic timepiece from the winged-hourglass brand, the Longines timepiece will be the constant companion of men and women who seek authenticity.
