Longines was making stellar heritage reissues well before it was cool. Case in point is the stylish ’60s-inspired Legend Diver, first released way back in 2007. And while it’s become de rigueur for most major brands to release one or two retro pieces a year, the Longines Legend Diver Review (LLD) pioneered the reissue genre, and still holds its own, thanks to a well-balanced trifecta of timeless good looks, clear vintage style and cracking value. read more

Longines Legend Diver

We at Fratello Watches are keen on re-editions of vintage timepieces of certain eras, but they need to be very well executed in order to succeed as such.

This year at Baselworld 2016, best  Longines  watch issued a surprising pair of new releases, taking their already impressive Heritage line deep into the brand’s rich past.
Longines Heritage 1918

First up is the Longines Heritage 1918. Drawing inspiration from the original Longines “Bracelet-Chronograph” of 1918, the Heritage 1918 is a handsome interpretation of early 20th century design. The case (available in both 41mm and diamond-studded 38mm women’s versions) is a simple, circular piece with mirror polish, calling to mind a pocket watch case, with a prominent cushion crown at 3. The wire lugs are almost completely contained, connecting to the case at only one point and giving the watch an almost floating appearance on the wrist. read more

The bright red 24-hour hand lets the owner track a second time zone. read more
