For those liking the vintage look we are pleased to offer this one owner mint example of the Heritage Diver by Longines.
We have just taken this is in as a part exchange and it is in excellent condition with only light scratches through occasional wear.
Bought new in 2016 this comes as a complete set and we feel offers excellent value for money.
The new Longines Heritage Diver 1967 is a great-looking vintage-inspired piece that, as is all the rage these days, draws inspiration from a past Longines model. With classic good looks, strong proportions and an enthusiast-approved movement, the Longines Heritage Diver 1967 managed to stand out in the crowd of new watches launched at Baselworld in 2015.
The Longines Heritage Diver 1967 has a 42mm-wide steel case with a bordeaux aluminum bezel which has not only a dive time scale, but also a 12-hour scale that allows for a fast and easy view of another timezone. To use a 12-hour bezel you simply rotate the bezel so that the hour differential (the number of hours between the timezone currently showing on your watch and the timezone you wish to track) is at 12 o’clock. You can now read the 2nd timezone hour using the bezel scale.
The dial is a mix of opaline black with silver sub dials and accents. There is also a subtle red cross emanating from the center of the dial and a date display at 4:30.
The case is polished with thin and faceted lugs that really work well with the vintage aesthetic. Being a dive watch that is water resistant to 300m, the crown screws down. The front sapphire is anti-reflective and has a raised box edge to further highlight the old school vibe. The case back is solid with a diver logo similar to that seen on the Longines Legend Diver a few years ago
Being a modern chronograph from a very capable brand, the Heritage Diver 1967 gets Longines’ L688.2 automatic column wheel chronograph. While the L688.2 is produced by Swatch group sibling ETA (as the A08.231), its use is exclusive to Longines.
