New Longines 41mm Legend Diver, Black Dial, Stainless Steel Bracelet, Ref. L3.764.4.50.6

It is immediately recognisable by its two crowns and internal rotating bezel. The new LONGINES LEGEND DIVER is resurfacing with a 39 mm diameter, faithful to the original 1959 model from which it takes its inspiration.

Certified as a Divers’ Watch with a water-resistance up to 30 bar / 300 metres, the model is driven by an exclusive Longines L888.6 calibre resistant to magnetic fields and equipped with a silicon balance-spring. This movement has a power reserve of up to 72 hours. The entire watch is chronometer-certified by COSC. The hours are marked by elongated indexes and raised luminescent Arabic numerals. The rhodium-plated and polished arrow-hands, coated with Super LumiNova®, mark the time with optimum visibility in all circumstances. The collection’s symbol, a diver, is stamped on the watch’s perfectly-angled screw-down case back.

This black dial model is presented on a stainless steel bracelet with a double-safety folding clasp.

Description

Because its trademark winged hourglass is the watch world’s oldest trademark, a person could understandably believe that Longines is the oldest watch company, although that is not the case. Formed in 1832 as a small workshop that assembled watches, it was not until later that the company grew into the brand we know as Longines. In 1867, Longines built a factory on a site that would give the company its name, a site known locally as “Les Longines,” (the long-meadows.) Longines blossomed in the meadows and by 1929, had won an amazing ten Grand Prix awards. A Grand Prix was a competition between watchmakers where they presented watches of high degree of accuracy and complication. When these exhibitions ceased, Longines had won more than any other watch company. Longines had a long association with aviators, including Charles Lindberg that was largely based on an innovative watch that used a calibrated bezel to calculate longitude in flight. But their remarkable aviation success was surpassed when in 1936, they developed what many believe to be one of the finest chronograph movements ever designed, the caliber 13ZN. The SWATCH group gave life to the company when quartz movements replaced the more expensive mechanical movements. Today, Longines continues as a brand known for producing affordable and well-crafted timepieces in keeping with its long tradition. Its heritage in aviation and exploration on the land and sea is celebrated with the reintroduction of the Longines celebrated historical models.
