The Longines Heritage Skin Diver

I was shown this watch during a meeting with Longines executives and told that it would not officially launch with the first wave of 2018 products. It would become available in late 2018, they said. As you can see, it's a really great-looking tribute to a historically important Longines, the Longines Nautilus Skin Diver – the first dive watch from Longines, in fact. It's a watch that I'd personally like to spend some more time with in the future outside of the less than ideal context of a trade show booth.

Like it, but I still like the last two versions of the Legend Diver a lot more.

In these pics, it looks far nicer than upon its release at Basel. With beige fauxtina to the lume, it looks good - for whatever reason, in the promo shots it looked like the lume is green-ish.

I like it.
