Unveiled this year at Baselworld watch fair, the Longines Heritage Diver 1967 draws its inspiration from a diver’s watch produced in 1967. Its graduated bordeaux diving bezel contrasts elegantly with its black opaline dial and silver-coloured counters. This chronograph watch is also equipped with a tachymeter function. An original piece is kept in the Longines museum in Saint-Imier.
Longines has always made chronographs designed to accompany pioneers' exploits. After having explored the earth and the sky in the twenties and thirties, athletes turned to the ocean depths in the fifties in the early days of diving with compressed air. This turning point promoted the development of diver’s watches. The reliable and elegant diver’s watches produced by Longines experienced great success.
