Ted’s Take:

The Longines Legend Diver is back and better than ever. With its retro design and modern functionality, it’s the perfect combination of old-school cool and practicality. Longines has made some updates to make it even more faithful to the original, like removing the date window and adding a new 39mm case size. The new lacquer dials and shorter lugs give it a sleek and stylish look. Priced at A$5,300, it’s a serious contender for the next watch in my collection. Plus, who can resist that steel beads of rice bracelet? It’s about time Longines gave the Legend Diver the makeover it deserves.
