Footnotes

  • Longines entered the market for diver's watches not with a screw down case but with a compressor case made by Piquerez, the advantage being quoted that the deeper the diver ventures and more pressure is on the watch, the more water resistant it became. Also departing from the convention of an outside rotating bezel, Longines opted for a second crown with an internal timing bezel. The second crown gives the watch a more sporty look. The design of this watch is replicated today in their Heritage Legend range.
