Swiss brand Longines has marked 10 years since it unveiled its re-imagined diving watch in 1960, with a new offering in the collection.
The Swiss Swatch Group-owned brand released two Heritage wristwatches as well as a recreation of a historic pocket watch, all inspired by models from the early 20th century in 2007.
Now Longines is marking the milestone achievement of ten years since the reissue by offering a new version with a Milanese mesh bracelet.
While retaining the codes and design typical of the 1960s, Longines has incorporated current methods to guarantee legibility, waterproofness and practicality.
The lines of the original watch are repeated, including the domed crystal, reminiscent of the technical limitations of the time.
Longines has given this piece contemporary and performance-oriented technical features: a sapphire crystal, and screwed crown and back to guarantee a water-resistance rating of 300 m, or even an internal bidirectional rotating disc for divers.
The indexes, digits and hands, covered with Super-LumiNova, stand out against the black lacquered dial to offer optimum readability, further sharpened by the simple and clear typography of the 3, 6, 9 and 12 digits.
The 42-mm stainless steel box houses an L633 automatic mechanical movement and sports an engraving of a diver on its screwed back.
This piece is available in either a rubber, cowhide or new Milanese watch strap, so it can be worn for any occasion.
