Longines Legend Diver Date Hands-On | FratellowatchesLongines was kind to lend us their Legend Diver Date timepiece for a time. Which means that I could use it for a time and our photographer Bert will take his time and energy to capture some proper photos of the watch.I own a weak area for vintage replica watches, on the other hand am less than interested in getting them serviced or repaired to often. When you buy a well used watch, you must have to look at that it's going to need an overhaul at some time. Also the proven fact that don't assume all part may be available anymore may not be attracting me. Any time a watchmaker (or factory) no longer has sufficient parts, this means you might be left behind using a watch with 'issues'. Trust me, I had my share of replica watches that needed parts that weren't around anymore. Finally, I obtained all repaired or replaced, however in some cases, it took over Yr.Vintage Longines DiverSo, I will be attracted to re-editions of vintage timepieces of certain eras, nonetheless it needs to be well executed. Perhaps this actually also explains why certain replica watches never changed a whole lot, they can be a brand's key to success. Consider the AP Royal Oak 'Jumbo' or the Rolex Submariner.However, you can hardly state that these replica watches are re-editions, because their production has practically never been cancelled. Among a highly executred re-edition is - in my opinion - the OMEGA Seamaster Ploprof 1200M.Another example of a rightly executed re-edition could be the Longines Legend Diver rolex replica . Approximately Five decades ago, Longines stood a much the same diver watch, using an automatic caliber 290 Longines movement inside. This 42mm Longines Diver watch had dimensions which can be similar to the current Longines Legend Diver watch. Longines did a properly job sundresses re-desiging this icon using their own heritage.A fast explore eBay tells me why these vintage Longines Diver replica watches may go easily around $8,000.- USD (see photo above, captured from eBay). replica panerai screws watches If you are not willing to pay that or wouldn't like to make chance of those things I described above with the purchase of an existing watch, you can think of this as re-edition Legend Diver by Longines.Longines Legend Diver Date and no-DateLongines borrowed us the Legend Diver Date model. The Legend Diver has been around since 2007, without a date feature. In '09, Longines added a version with a date complication at the same time. For reasons uknown, Longines chose to prevent the production and delivery with this no-Date version in 2011/2012. Personally, I wouldn't mind the version minus the date aperture, as it comes nearer to the main and it doesn't disturb the otherwise clean dial.I have done an instant operated with the watch consumer behavioural data of Chronolytics, and yes it appears that 52,45% (globally) of the hunting for a Longines Legend Divers have to have one and not using a date (ref. L3.674.4.56). My guess is the fact you will discover purists who strive for the no-date version and those that need a dose of 'practicality' in a very watch and prefer to start dating ? feature. A pity that Longines doesn't want to impress both groups.Comfortable WearerAnyway, let's begin. The Longines Legend Diver Date has been on my own wrist for several weeks so i have to say that is a very comfortable wearer tag heuer canada watches . The 42mm diameter is simply perfect and matches the current standard 'size' for timepieces. I can only imagine that the original type of this have to have been huge during the early 1960s! One of the reasons why it's very comfortable has become the synthetic strap that accompany the watch. Sleep issues of the synthetic strap features a lining of an felt-like material. This helps to ensure that the watch is not difficult for the wrist (no sweaty issues) which stays put.I can imagine a classic looking stainless-steel mesh bracelet would look cool at the same time, or maybe a NATO strap made out of leather.Two Crowns Plus a Super Compressor CaseThe two crowns, (the reduced) one for setting time (and date) and (the top of the) one for rotating the inner diving bezel. The crowns share the same hobnail pattern because original Longines Diver replica watches and are also simple to grasp and operate.A (super) compressor case such as this Longines Legend Diver the first is not really that uncommon, as we have seen similar ones from Jaeger-LeCoultre by way of example. In the past, manufacturers like Universal Geneve (Polerouter Sub), LIP (Nautic Ski), Benrus and Fortis have used them as well.The Longines Legend Diver includes a super compressor case. Compressor refers to the seal construction which ensures water resistancy through pressure about the gaskets. Super Compressor comes to compressor, but also features a screw-down caseback. Many people think super compressor has something connected with the 2 crowns, but it really doesn't. More information about (super) compressor cases can be obtained for the Scuba watch website.Into the 42mm diameter watch case is a domed sapphire crystal. Although I wouldn't have mind a plexi crystal about this watch, I can view the selection for a scratch resistant sapphire crystal.Although most buyers will probably be so-called desk divers, the watch can perform getting through a pressure of 30 bar (~ 300 meters).Legend Diver Date DialThe black lacquered dial from the Longines Legend Diver Date is only beautiful. It was one of the things, with the super compressor case and two crowns, that creates this watch. The painted luminous (Super Luminova) hour markers and hands really are a bit yellow-ish, like patina. The lume in the dial is good and makes it an exceptionally readable dial at nighttime. The hands are polished and contrast perfectly with all the black lacquered dial, perfectly readable coming from all angles.Some tips i also like concerning this watch can it be lacks all the needless facts about the dial. Merely the Longines name brand & brand name and the reality that it becomes an automatic watch. All the other information, including the water resistancy level, the reference number, the model name it comes with it truly is Swiss made is on the case back.The centre of the truth back is definitely an embossed emblem of a diver holding a harpoon.Longines Caliber L633Longines is part of the Swatch Group then one in the features of being a member of this group, is you can use a movement through the ETA company. While other businesses are most often more focused on developing in-house movements for marketing reasons compared to the sake of producing cool replica watches, Longines picked the ETA2824-2 because of their Legend Diver Date. I actually do not think that in-house developed movement is always that important for customers. I really believe a fair price for any watch is a bit more important compared to the origin of any movement. Possess seen other individuals double price for the exact watch, the good news is featuring an in-house movement. It doesn't make sense if you ask me. Also, the ETA 2824-2 (like a great many other ETA movements) have a perfect history of becoming a solid and accurate movement.ConclusionAnd the prior paragraph raises the price tag on the watch. Much like the Longines Saint-Imier Retrograde Moon Phases (read my review onto it here), the price is certainly a competitive component of this watch. This Longines Legend Diver Date carries a retail price of 1540 EUR (from the Netherlands, including 21% VAT).In the beginning, I couldn't think that this is actually the actual sale price. It is extremely (very!) competitive to several other replica watches around. With this form of money, prehaps you are capable of buy something nice vintage coming from a large amount of other brands, but there are always various things to think about (chance of expensive repair or maintenance costs, small diameter) when doing that. If you don't wish to think or worry about these aspects and require a cool modern watch (with interesting heritage), this Longines Legend Diver Date might do the trick in your case.Pros- interesting heritage - competitive price - pretty dial - super compressor case - finish of dial an accidents - comfortable strapCons- date aperture disturbs dial design (you will find a No Date in the pre-owned circuit)Longines Legend Diver Date L3.674.4.50.0 SpecificationsCase: Type: Super Compressor Diameter: 42mm Material: Metal WR: 300 meters / 30 bar Crystal: dome sapphire with AR coatingDial: Black lacquered Polished hands Super Luminova on hour markers and handsStrap: Black synthetic fabric, felt-lining, steel buckle with Longines logoMovement: Longines caliber L633 (ETA2824-2), 28.800 bph, 38 hours of power reserveFunctions: Hours, minutes, seconds, date, inner diving bezelMore information: www.longines.com
