Thread: Longines chronographs - Basel 2015 - update pics

    Longines chronographs - Basel 2015 - update pics

    I find these rather cool.

    I would love to see the monopusher dial without the date and the "automatic" reference isn't welcome (imo). Still, I like them.

    I do like these Heritage pieces that Longines have produced in recent years. That '67 Diver Chrono is nice!

    Not sure Longines had enough "courage" to go all the way and get a hand wind movement plus a cleaner dial, on the monopusher. That "automatic" (not to mention the date) is quite disturbing. Let's give it a cleaning

    I can handle the small automatic text on the monopusher. At least it's not a wall of text like that silly new pelagos. The date I fully agree, but then I'd rather every watch not have a date wheel cluttering it up. Especially as most companies don't have the slightest idea how to incorporate in cleanly.

    I'm sure they're out there, but I am yet to see a Longines I wouldn't wear. Longines does no wrong.

    The pessimist says it can't get any worse while the optimist says it can.

    I like the new heritage chronograph, particularly because the two existing heritage chronographs have cut off numerals and this one does not.

    Actually, there are, at least, 12 heritage chronographs (not counting the variants). Not all of them have cut off numerals, but I guess you mean - only - the monopushers. In that sense, yes, they avoided that problem here.

    Holy crap yes to the 1967 diver. Do the pushers work underwater? When can I buy one (not when can I afford one, that's a question no one can answer)? Will it come in any other colors? I'm not in love with the bracelet design, but everything else is wonderful. The raised eyebrow asymmetrical dial sizes, the lovely caseback, the delicately designed pushers, the signed crown, the rectangular hands. Really love pretty much all of it. Only wish that it were either 1mm wider or that the lugs were 2mm narrower. Not a dealbreaker by any means, but that's what keeps it from going into the realm of perfect watches. At least in my opinion.
