Longines Tourneau Legend Diver Automatic Watch
Longines Tourneau Legend Diver Automatic Watch No Date
This is a very nice 2008 Longines Tourneau Legend Diver Automatic Watch No Date, which were only made between 2007 and discontinued in 2011/12. A reissue of the famous Longines dive watch of the 1960s, having a Super Compressor case with twin crowns.
This example is the ‘no-date’ version. Interestingly, the case has a matt finish almost as if titanium; even though the back states all stainless steel. We have sought the opinion of an expert who has suggested that this may be one of a series of watch prototypes, which may have been offered on limited sale.
They are now highly sought after and command prices over £1000. This watch is in perfect working order. However, the top crown, which operates the internal bezel, is loose as the stem has broken. Hence, the internal bezel does not rotate. The crown still screws down and there is no visible manifestation of this fault from the outside. Mindful of this fault, we are selling this interesting watch for £625.
