There are two new colour options available for the Longines Legend model, in brown and blue. Here’s the details from Longines;
The Longines Legend Diver Watch, a timepiece that’s emblematic of the winged-hourglass brand’s Heritage segment, is now available in coloured versions. In blue or brown, these creations bring a new look to one of the first diving watches designed by Longines.
Longines has been a name long associated with sport, and so it is only fitting that it brings its expertise to diving. It all began in 1937, when
water-resistance became a quality criterion. Longines developed a watch case with water resistant push-pieces for its renowned 13ZN caliber, taking care to patent this creation.
An icon of the rich heritage of the winged hourglass brand, this line has gradually expanded over the years and today proposes new versions in steel with blue or brown shades. The latest versions of The Longines Legend Diver Watch conserve the spirit and the pure lines of the original timepiece, while benefitting from the brand’s watch-making expertise. They feature up-to-date technical characteristics, such as a box-shaped sapphire glass, two screw-in crowns and a screw-down case back; they are water resistant to 300 metres or they have an automatic movement with a silicon spring balance, made exclusively for Longines.
The blue or brown shaded dial features luminous hands, hour markers interspersed with luminescent squares and Arab numerals enhanced with Super-LumiNova® rectangles for optimum visibility. A reminder of the codes of the sport for which this watch was originally intended. And just like on the original model, the 42 mm case back is decorated with an embossed emblem of a diver. A structured blue or brown leather strap matches the colour of the dial. These new models of The Longines Legend Diver Watch come with a 5-year warranty.
