    New Longines Heritage 1945 aka Ben Clymer's watch

    What do you think of this? Apparently Ben Clymer has a similar watch (vintage from 1945) that occasionaly shows on instagram. He just told the story that last year at Baselworld the people from Longines asked to check the original he owns and now presented this new version inspired by his watch down to the similar strap.
    My take: the sub-second dial is wrong for the size of the watch (40mm) and that is so frustrating.

    Nice looking watch. Now I've got to figure out who "Ben Clymer" is.

    I think it's a good looking watch, even if it could be 37-39mm instead. Still, at 40mm it would fit me fine.

    Looks great especially with no date! I don't mind the small seconds dial, but I would prefer if it were smaller than 40mm.

    Well if I read google right...Ben Clymer is the founder of Hodinkee or a retired hockey player.

    The watch isn't bad but I would like that sub-dial a bit lower (and bigger).

    Hm, I could totally wear this. No room int he watch box, but that just means I need another watch box.
