The Longines Legend Diver diving watch replica is the quintessential symbol of Longines’ classic replica collection. Now, Longines is giving the brand’s diving watches a new look with the introduction of two new models, the Longines Legend Diver 42 mm Blue replica (ref: L3.7220.127.116.11) and the Grey (ref: L3.718.104.22.168).
Longines has a long association with sport, so it was only logical that the brand should bring its expertise to the field of diving. It all started in 1937, when water resistance had become a quality standard. Longines creates and patents a water-resistant case for the famous 13ZN movement. Further advances followed, with the first civilian diving watch in 1958 and many more in the 1960s.
These new editions of the Longines Legend Diver replica retain the same super-compressor style, inspired by the late 1950s Ref. 7042 (and later Ref. 7494 and 7594, with movement upgrades). This means a 42mm diameter case in polished stainless steel, a thin bezel, a height of about 13.5mm and, topping the case, a highly domed sapphire crystal for vintage charm. No changes regarding overall proportions, as these new LLDs retain elongated lugs (about 52mm lug-to-lug) and a 22 lug width. The caseback is still screwed and decorated with a diver’s emblem.
On the right side of the case, the replica Longines Legend Diver is characterized by the presence of two screw-down crowns with a grid pattern. The one positioned at 4 o’clock is used to wind the movement and adjust the time. The other one, at 2 o’clock, is linked to the internal rotating bezel, with a 60-minute diving scale. Water-resistance is rated at 300 meters or 30 bars.
As for the dials, no major evolutions are to be noted. All the elements – fonts, tracks, logos and hands – are identical to the classic black-and-steel model. This is also true for the date window, positioned at 3 o’clock. When Longines introduced the no-date bronze Legend Diver in late 2020, we secretly hope for a return of this clean display on steel models… But it will apparently remain a dream. As such, the elegant dial retains its elongated markers and Arabic numerals, as well as rather small luminous plots to mark the hours during the night. The hands are still polished and feature Super-LumiNova.
What’s new are the two colours offered. The 42mm steel Longines Legend Diver replica watch will now be available, in addition to a black dial, with brown or blue lacquered dials, both having a gradient effect – the centre of the dial being more saturated and brighter in colour, the periphery being black. Depending on the edition, the watch is worn on a vintage brown leather strap or a blue structured leather strap.
Powering these new replica Longines Legend Diver models is the well-known calibre L888.5 (base ETA A31.L11) found across the entire Longines’ range. This time-and-date automatic movement is based on the architecture of the ETA 2892, however, the brand has applied multiple upgrades. While the frequency is now 3.5Hz, the power reserve has been extended to 64 hours. Also, the regulating organ is fitted with a silicon balance spring offering anti-magnetic properties and long-term accuracy. This allows the brand to offer a 5-year warranty.
The new replica Longines Legend Diver Gradient Blue (Ref. L3.722.214.171.124 ) and Gradient Brown (Ref. L3.7126.96.36.199) are both launched in the permanent collection. Price is set at EUR 2,240, CHF 2,260 or GBP 1,750 (same as the black model).
