Longines Heritage Diver 1967 Watch Review
Friday - 28 August 2015
The Longines Heritage Diver 1967 fondly looks back at their historic successes thrusting them into the 21st century.
The clue is in the title of this particular timepiece’s inspiration being the iconic 1967 diver’s watch that sits in the Longines’ museum in Saint-Imier; the perfect vintage piece to replicate adding a contemporary twist. Containing much of the D.N.A of the original heritage masterpiece the vivid red bordeaux diving bezel boldly leaps from the dial adding a striking depth to the watch face. The white numbers and indices are easily readable against the deep coloured hue, which contrasts beautifully against the black opaline dial and silver counters. The striking bezel that presents a dive time scale shares its platform with a 12 hour scale provides the wearer to read another timezone in a simple and easy way via the movement of the bezel.
The counted 9 indices are coated with Super-LumiNova for legibility in diving conditions as are the rectangular shaped rhodium-plated hour and minute hands. The striking timepiece adopts the subtle tachymeter scale that encircles the dial that hosts an unusual sub dial layout. The counter proudly situated at 3 o’clock is significantly larger than the further two dials at 6 and 9 o’clock. A large date display is situated at 5 o’clock sitting perfectly between the two counters. Of course, as a proud diver’s watch the timepiece is water resistant to 300 m and is therefore, crucially legible at underwater depths.
