the Longines Legend in black

Post by koimaster » April 9th 2019, 9:05am

The Longines Legend Diver Watch, a reimagined version of a diving watch from the 1960s, had a dramatic reintroduction in 2017, care of the Milanese bracelet addition — perhaps the best strap hack of the year, period — and now it’s going to set pulses racing even faster with a new version in black PVD.

Vital statistics

Apart from the PVD, the Legend Diver remains true to the bold styling that made the original timepiece something of an icon in the Longines canon. It houses Longines’ L888 caliber. In terms of design, the lines of the original watch have been preserved, including the boxed glass (but in sapphire crystal) and the bidirectional internal turning diving bezel.

I love the looks of the Legend Diver, but this PVD version sucks cock.

I don't hate it as much as you do, but I'd pick the version Longines issued three years ago. It didn't need any "updates."

Some things just don't need improving.
