Longines Legend Diver Watch

The Longines Weems Second-Setting Watch, a tribute to the navigation system devised by Captain Philip van Horn Weems, and the Longines Twenty-Four Hours, a re-issue of a watch designed especially for Swissair pilots in the 1950s, also feature among the stars of the Heritage models.

Time and Watches Tuesday, 3 November 2020 Longines presented two new versions of its successful Legend Diver, a reissue of a 1960s diving watch of the brand. Available in Italy as a world premiere, the new models are characterised by blue and brown dials that darken to a subtly gradated black toward the outside.
Before diving into the actual feeling of wearing the watch, let’s understand the roots of “my” model, the Longines Legend Diver reference L3-674-4, also known as the “LLD” among its numerous enthusiasts. It all started in the late 1950s with the Longines Nautilus Skin Diver.
The Legend Diver has been a cornerstone of the brand’s lineup ever since, and despite its status as a potential spearhead for the entire retro diver movement Longines has never intersected the Legend Diver with the other popular modern dive watch trend of bronze case material.
Another example is the watch that I review here, the Longines Legend Diver. Approximately 50 years ago, Longines had a very similar diver watch, with an automatic caliber 290 Longines movement inside. This 42-mm Longines Diver watch had dimensions that are similar to the current Longines Legend Diver watch.

It all started in the late 1950s with the Longines Nautilus Skin Diver. The name is pretty self-explanatory, and shows that Longines was already tackling the rapidly expanding market for dive watches. They quickly doubled down in the early 1960s with the release of a bigger dive watch – the reference 7042 pictured above.
