Longines has recently decided to go back to their original, historic roots when it comes to watchmaking, creating timeless dive watches that reflect the watchmaking techniques of yesteryear. It is beginning through their revival of the first diver watch they ever made, which is a 1959 timepiece. It changes the original model by making them more high performing than ever, giving it more modern technical features that make it function better than it ever did in the past. It is both elegant and reliable, a true gem for any collector of classic timepieces.
The high performance Longines Skin Diver Watch begins with its rounded stainless steel case measuring 42 millimeters in diameter, large enough to showcase its details with ease. It features Arabic numeral details and a luminescent triangle positioned at its top for easier viewing of time at a glance. The polished, rhodium plated hands also have Super-LumiNova material on them to further help its legibility. Atop the dial is a domed sapphire crystal glass that is not only resistant to scratches but also possesses many layers of anti-reflective coating which helps stop glares when reading the time in bright sunlight. It is water resistant up to 300 meters. The Longines Skin Diver Watch sits on a Milanese stainless steel bracelet that has a triple safety folding clasp.
