Longines Legend Diver 'a unique watch'

First published: 28-01-2011

Divers watch fans may want to check out a re-released timepiece from Longines, after it received a rave review.

Entitled the Legend Diver, the product incorporates an exact replica case of its predecessor from the 1960s, part of which has earned it a score of 67 out of 100 by Watch Observer.

The watch also uses a rotating internal bezel and two screwed-in crowns, both of which were common for diving timepieces of the 60s.

Other appealing features of the Legend Diver include a rather bulky 42mm diameter case and a weight of 87g, the latter of which makes the model "very comfortable once put on".

Watch Observer added: "The Legend Diver is a unique watch that will seduce the knowledgeable connoisseurs that appreciate its vintage charm along with its modern capabilities."

Recently, the news source awarded the Longines Master Collection Retrograde a rating of 66 out of 100, due in part of its retrograde hands making "the watch very animated".
