For Baselworld 2018, Longines carries a couple of updates to one of its most notorious present day watches, the Legend Diver. Not exclusively is presently comes with another and more performant development, however chiefly, it now accessible in full dark – case, dial, lash. And keeping in mind that, here at MONOCHROME, we’re generally not tremendous aficionados of full dark watches, this new Longines Legend Diver Black PVD has very some appeal.
The nuts and bolts are as yet unchanged: a vintage-propelled jump watch with compressor-style case, planned after an amazing 1960s watch, with inward pivoting bezel and two crowns on the correct side of the case. The watch holds its lacquered dark dial, its mark lists and hands, its 300m water opposition and its by and large exceptionally cool look.
What’s new then? Above all else, the 42mm instance of the Longines Legend Diver is currently covered in Black PVD. In any case, that’s not all. Something I never truly loved about the LLD was the full cleaned completing of the case – marginally excessively valuable for a diver’s watch. Combined with the dark treatment is a currently completely brushed case, giving the watch a more utilitarian and device is look.
The new Longines Legend Diver Black PVD additionally includes another development. Recently controlled by a standard ETA 2824-2, it presently gets the calibre L888.2, in light of the ETA A31.L01. This development, restrictive to Longines, offers a more extended force hold of 64h and an expanded precision.
The dial stays equivalent to the steel form, with its engaging gleaming dark surface – despite the fact that it likewise makes a great deal of reflections – and a profoundly domed sapphire gem. This Longines Legend Diver Black PVD is conveyed with a dark elastic lash with Milanese-like surface and a dark PVD covered collapsing catch and integrated plunging extension.
