An Introduction to Longines Divers Watches

Longines is a Swiss luxury watch manufacturer with a long-standing history of producing high-quality timepieces since 1832. Longines has a range of diver’s watches that are known for their exceptional performance and elegant design. Three popular models from this range are the Ultra-Chron, Hydroconquest, and Legend diver.


The Longines Ultra-Chron is a classic diver’s watch that has been in production since the 1960s. This watch features a stainless steel case and bracelet with a black dial and luminescent hands and hour markers. It has a unidirectional rotating bezel that allows for easy tracking of elapsed time underwater. The Ultra-Chron is powered by an automatic movement with a high-frequency balance that provides accurate timekeeping and a power reserve of up to 48 hours.


The Longines Hydroconquest is a modern diver’s watch that features a sleek design with a stainless steel case and bracelet. It has a unidirectional rotating bezel with a ceramic insert, making it scratch-resistant and durable. The Hydroconquest is water-resistant up to 300 meters and has a screw-down crown and case back, ensuring maximum protection against water ingress. It is powered by an automatic movement with a power reserve of up to 64 hours.

Legend Diver

The Longines Legend diver is a vintage-inspired diver’s watch that pays tribute to the brand’s heritage. It features a stainless steel case and a black dial with luminescent hands and hour markers. It has a unidirectional rotating bezel with a black aluminum insert, and the case back is engraved with a diver’s helmet. The Legend diver is water-resistant up to 300 meters and is powered by an automatic movement with a power reserve of up to 64 hours.

A Diver’s Watch of many styles

The Hydroconquest is a watch of many styles and colours. Longines have refreshed the range several times since it’s launch. For those who like the stealthy appearance of a tactical watch they offer an all black ceramic version. If green is your scene the Hydroconquest collection has been extended to include a version in natural green hues. For customers that want a timepiece with a story to tell and with a limited edition production run – look no further than the Hydroconquest XXII Commonwealth games.

The collection below illustrates the diversity in just this one watch range. From the Tactical all black ceramic version to the colourful green, steel and gold Hydroconquest. One thing they all have in common is Swiss workmanship and superlative quality – truly an affordable luxury diver’s watch.

All these Hydroconquest feature Longines in-house calibers like the L888 – an automatic (self-winding) movement beating at 25,200 vibrations per hour, with a power reserve of approximately 72 hours

Re-invented – the Longines Ultra-Chron

We have to go back to 1968 to discover the origins of the Longines Ultra-Chron Diver. This classic dive watch has been re-invented with a new high-frequency calibre. This new movement represents the first reinterpretation of Longines status as a pioneer in the world of sports timing. This contemporary timepiece will appeal to both vintage watch collectors and tech lovers. The standout feature of this watch is it’s accuracy. The Longines Ultra-Chron is certified as an “ultra chronometer” by TIMELAB, an independent testing laboratory in Geneva. This accreditation above the standard “chronometer” certification used by many other luxury watch marques.

Ultra-Chron discovered on eBay

The Ultra-Chron is a relatively new watch – as such they’re quite hard to find on eBay. We did find this stunning original model – a 1968 Longines Ultra-Chron. This rare timepiece was sold for £1,300 by a seller in the UK

The Longines Legend Diver Watch

Another reinterpretation of a classic diver watch – this time from the 1960s. The Longines Legend Diver is symbolic of the rich heritage of this luxury brand. All Legend Diver models manage to retain the clean lines of the original timepiece. Outside it may look the same, but inside it’s equipped with up-to-date technical features.

Longines Sports Legend Diver 42mm Stainless Steel Automatic Blue Dial L37744902

The Legend dive watches are powered by in-house Longines calibers. Most utilise the L592 automatic (self-winding) mechanical movement beating at 28’800 vibrations per hour, with a power reserve of approximately 45 hours.

A contemporary watch that has kept the spirit of the original alive. A novel feature of this watch is the internal dive time bezel. This is set using the second crown making it impossible to knock while diving. If you like this feature you’ll also find it on the Panzera Aquamarine Pro Diver 45.

Longines Skin Diver

As with several other brands such as Blancpain and their Fifty Fathoms and Omega with their Seamaster 300, this is a clever reinterpretation of a classic timepiece. With the Longines Skin Diver they resurrected their first diver watch – a 1959 timepiece. The Skin Diver Watch has all the sleekness and aesthetic quality of the original model. However, it adds high-performing, contemporary technical features to this modern day classic divers watch.


Alternatives to Longines dive watches

If the Longines brand appeals then please also consider a diver’s watch from either Doxa, Sinn, Tissot or Oris. Just like the Longines brand the range of Doxa dive watches is often overlooked in favour of better known brands such as TAG Heuer and Omega. Most popular in their dive watch collection are the Doxa Sub 200, the glorious Doxa Sub 300T (with no-decompression bezel timer) and, our favourite, the reborn Doxa 600T built from marine grade stainless steel. Next we’d recommend something exotic from the range of Sinn dive watches. Most popular in their dive watch collection are the Sinn U1 (1000m), the Sinn U2 (2000m & dual time) and, our favourite, the Sinn UX range with HYDRO technology. 

If nothing their grabs your attention then wander over to the more traditional, yet equally desirable range of dive watches from Tissot and Longines. Tissot is a brand with a long and intimate relationship with the sea and in particular – divers watches. Join us as we take the plunge and dive in to the Tissot Seastar divers watch range. Most popular are the Seastar 1000 and the deep diving Tissot Seastar 2000 with Powermatic 80 automatic movement. Next we’d recommend the Oris Divers watches. The most popular models in their dive collection are the Aquis (WR to 300m – 1000m) and the Divers Sixty Five (WR to 100m). A collection of competent timepieces with a product for all users from outdoor beach life (Oris Sixty Five) to full on professional diver (Aquis Depth Gauge).
