Swiss watch company Longines has announced that it is preparing to introduce the Heritage Diver 1967. It is inspired and takes its name from an earlier divers watch released by the manufacturer in 1967.
The 42 mm timepiece will be produced in steel with a bordeaux aluminium bezel and houses a self-winding mechanical calibre L688.82 movement that is based on the ETA A08.231 mechanism.
It will feature hour, minute and small second functions, whilst a date display is depicted at the half past four position. The chronograph functions include a central 60-second hand, 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock, and 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock. In addition, a tachymeter scale surrounds the dial of the watch.
The design of the Heritage Diver 1967 is topped off with its black opaline and silver-coloured dial that has nine indexes with Super-LumiNov coating. The hour and minute hands are rhodium-plated and also boast Super-LumiNova.
Each piece is supplied on a stainless steel bracelet and has a sapphire crystal display that includes several layers of anti-reflective treatment, allowing the watch to easily be read in a variety of lighting conditions.
The Heritage Diver 1967 has a minimum power reserve of approximately 54 hours and is water resistant up to a pressure of 30 bar (300 meters or 1000 feet).
