Longines – Heritage Diver and Heritage Diver Chronograph
Roused to the diving watches of the 1970s, the two new Longines Heritage Diver models – one with three hands and the other a chronograph – adopts a vintage pad shaped steel case with a breadth of 43 mm, much the same as the firsts creations. The case is satin brushed aside from the cleaned sides.
The black, satin-finish dial combines red detail with Super-LumiNova covered hour markers and hands. The two models includes a bidirectional rotating inner rib with case back, crown and bezel tightened to guarantee water-protection from 30 bar or 300 metres.
The three-hand model receives the red tone for the moment hand and for the graduated scale from 0 up to 60, helpful to calculate the hour of inundation by synchronizing the 12 o’clock hour symbol with the moment hand. The inward rib is initiated utilizing the crown at 2 o’clock. The development is oneself winding mechanical movement Calibre L633.5 (in view of the ETA 2824-2) beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour with a 38-hour power hold.
In the chronograph form, the graduated scale on the rib goes from 60 down to 0 to compute, for example, the decompression remaining time by synchronising a given point with the minute hand. The internal rib is enacted using the crown at 10 o’clock. Inside, the 4Hz Caliber L651.3 depends on the ETA 2894-2 programmed development with chronograph instrument and offers 42 hours of force hold when completely twisted.
The new Longines Heritage Diver models, whose case back is engraved with the figure of a jumper, are fitted on a dark manufactured or elastic tie. The cost for the Longines Heritage Diver three-hand (ref. L2.795.4.52.x) will be US$2,550 while the chronograph rendition (ref. L2.796.4.52.x) will retail for US$3,750.
