A

reinterpretation of a 1960s diver watch, The Longines Legend Diver occupies a special place in the brand’s Heritage segment. Symbolic of the rich heritage of the brand based in Saint-Imier, this range has gradually expanded over the years and now includes a bronze version. Bronze is a living material whose fascination lies in its warm colour and natural patina that changes and becomes more beautiful with time,making each timepiece unique.
