Giving this emblematic timepiece from the brand’s Heritage segment a fresh new twist in watchmaking’s trendiest material, Longines finds yet another way to interpret its classic sensibilities.

This bronze version of a diver watch—belonging to the easy-on-the-eye sport category that is infinitely popular and well-received—is a revamp of a cherished symbol from the watch brand’s Saint-Imier roots. It is now imbued with the bronzed warmth of the metal’s natural patina which morphs with growing allure over time—resulting in the uniqueness of each timepiece.

What remains unchanged though is the spirit of the watch which inherits the clean lines of the original from the 1960s. Retooled with up-to-date features, it now flaunts a contemporary vibe yet is steeped in history. Its 42 mm bronze and titanium case houses an automatic movement with silicon balance-spring that assures this diver watch reiteration of precision and performance. Its shaded green lacquered dial is without a doubt one of its most appealing features, being protected by a sapphire crystal box.

For all-round legibility besides serving as a reminder of the regiments of the sport for which the watch was originally made, the dial can be seen sporting luminous hands, hour markers of Super-LumiNova®-coated squares and Arabic numerals decorated with luminescent rectangles.

The Legend Diver retains an element from the founding model in the form of an embossed emblem of a diver on the screwdown case back. Granting great versatility is the double strap option: brown leather finished with beige topstitching and a supplemental strap in green NATO-type nylon which are easily swapped with a tool kit that comes with each watch.

A generous five-year warranty gives peace of mind upon the purchase of this timepiece that will surely prove to be a constant, reliable and stylish companion.
