Longines - Heritage Diver 1967

| 1 Comment
The new Longines Heritage Diver 1967, unveiled at Baselworld 2015, draws inspiration from a diver chronograph produced in 1967.

The contrast between the bordeaux aluminium bezel and the black opaline dial with silver-coloured counters is effective and gives a strong personality to this timepiece.

Counters are asymmetrical with the chronograph 30-minute counter at 3 o'clock much larger than the small seconds sub-dial at 9 o'clock. Compared to the original model, the new Heritage Diver 1967 adds a chronograph 12-hour counter at 6 o'clock and a date aperture at 4:30.

The hands and hour markers are coated in Super-LumiNova for perfect legibility even in poor light conditions.

The bezel, graduated from 0 to 60 and 1 to 12, makes it possible to calculate the length of the dive while the tachometer scale of the internal flange can be used to calculate the speed of the diver.

The stainless steel case has a diameter of 42 mm and houses a self-winding L688.2 (ETA A08.231) movement with column wheel chronograph mechanism. Beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour, it offers 54 hours of power reserve.

An engraving of a diver adorns the caseback as a reminder of the first divers watches produced by Longines. The back and crown of the piece are screwed to ensure water resistance of up to 30 bar (300 metres / 1000 feet).

The Longines Heritage Diver 1967 (ref. L2.808.4.52.x) can be matched to a steel bracelet, to a black leather strap or to a rubber strap. Price to be announced.
