The Longines Legend Diver, Now On Mesh

Longines’ Vintage-Style Dive Watch Just Got a New Strap and It’s Absolutely Perfect


July 31, 2017 Watches By

The Legend Diver is a reissue of a Longines dive watch first made by the watchmaker in 1960. Since the reissue was released 10 years ago, it has remained one of the standout watches in Longines’ ever-expanding lineup of vintage-inspired timepieces. That’s something that hasn’t been lost on Longines, and to celebrate 10 years of the Legend Diver, it released an anniversary edition with a new Milanese mesh strap option.

That’s pretty much it — the watch still has the same dial, 42mm case, domed crystal and ETA-based automatic movement. But the semi-obscure watch strap choice has been seeing something of a resurgence as of late, and it goes a long way in giving the Legend Diver even more of an old-school edge. And that’s to say nothing of the Milanese strap’s inherent comfort and sartorial versatility.
