The new model that Longines created has perfectly reproduced the elegance and brilliance of the first diver watch of the brand – Nautilus Skin Divers ref. 6921, bringing the watch lovers to the times during 1950s to 1960s. The production time of this model was only several years, then the Super Compressor ref.7042 took place of it.
The new vintage fake Longines Heritage Skin Diver pays tribute to the original model, maintaining the important features, meanwhile, some details have been changed to satisfy the taste of contemporary people. Firstly, although it continues the same shape of the case of original model, the diameter has been expanded from 40 mm to 42 mm. The widely designed black bezel makes the Skin Diver look bigger than Legend Diver even if they are of the same diameter. Compared with other models with small size of retro style, the temperature of the Skin Diver is less “vintage” than others.
The domed sapphire crystal has imitated the visual effect of original Acrylic lens, however, it offers much greater ability of anti-scratching. The black dial with grain pattern of the Longines is loyal to the original model. Although the material of the bezel is different, Longines has kept them in the same shape. The new model is water resistant to 300 meter while the original is to 150 meters.
