    Longines Legend Diver: Love it or hate it ?

    I am thinking of this model as a possible go-to watch in the collection, and wondered what past and present owners think of this one ?
    The case size seems good, not too large in diameter or height,
    but am wondering if the dial design makes this one wear on the small side ?

    I hope you'll share a thought or two with me....

    have a wonderful new year all....

    Me too. I like the similarity it shares with the JLC Polaris. The only grip I have is that the minute hand looks a little feeble on a watch of this heft.
    Sláinte,

    I like to think that I'm a future owner, because I love it.
    Cheers,

    Looks like you like the classics..............and the Longines is, imo a true classic.Longines is a beautiful watch, a classy watch. Well proportioned...not too big not too small....change straps...it can look dressy and sport.

    Love it from the pics, want to see one in person though. Pretty reasonable too, wonder if they'll do a bracelet for it.

    I agree.. this watch and the Railmaster and two of my favorite non-Seiko, modern watches based on classic designs

    I've surprisingly seen two of them already ... selling for about 10% below the greymarket new price. They weren't moving.
    Probably could figure out what they eventually sold for by searching the old TZ sales posts.
