Description
This vintage Longines reference 7150-1 is a professional diver from the early 1960s. Innovative mechanics, breathtaking look and rarity make up the undisputed legendary status of this Longines diver.

This watch features a super compressor case designed by Piquerez. These cases ingeniously relied on underwater pressure to increase their water resistance. This essential innovation proved so efficient that Longines made very few changes to its diver over the next decade.

The watch has two original diver's crowns with cross hatching pattern. The bezel under the acrylic crystal can be rotated by the upper crown. The crown at 4 o'clock is used to wind the watch and to set the time. The crown at 2 o'clock shows a small chip, but the crown is 100% original.

The watch features a striking appearance thanks to its large 42mm diameter and a black dial with clear optics. The dial is preserved in great condition and has no scratches or other defects. It has developed a nice natural patina which gives the watch an honest and authentic vintage look. The tritium luminous material is original in the hands and markers. The case shows sharp edges and hardly any scratches. The case back bears the diver symbol. This vintage watch is powered by the Longines automatic caliber 290. The movement operates perfectly and provides accurate timekeeping.

From a collector's point of view, this Longines Diver 7150-1 offers the most important features: rarity, exceptional look, innovative technology and excellent condition.
