The UK Cheap Replica Longines Legend Diver In Bronze — A Timeless Dive Watch

When Longines replica introduced their Legend Diver a few years ago, it came in two flavors. A date and a non-date. At some point, Longines decided to only continue with the date version.

Sure, Longines has its Skin Diver without a date, but that’s not the same. I was very happy — and a little bit surprised — to see that the top quality fake Longines Heritage Legend Diver in bronze has no date. I am not really in favor of date windows on a watch (exceptions exist of course), so I am biased anyway. We did a Wrist Game Crying Shame article on a Legend Diver No Date and you were brutal as well though, 78% voted for the Legend Diver without a date. Now, they make one again! And it is in bronze!
Longines Legend Diver Bronze
What we have here is the reference L3.774.1.50.2, the Longines Legend Diver ref.L3.774.1.50.2 replica with a bronze case on a leather strap (a green nylon alternative is also included in the box, along with a handy strap-change tool). This Ø42mm bronze case has a titanium case back, to ensure you’ll have no irritated skin due to the bronze. That’s actually the reason why (almost) all bronze watches have a steel (or titanium) case back, as bronze might result in an allergic reaction when worn on the wrist. But in this case, with a titanium case back, there’s no problem.
Green Dial
Bronze watches aren’t a hype, they are here to stay and every major watch brand seems to have at least one in their collection. It is a wonderful material, that has a warm gold-like tone, and the tendency to develop some nice patina after wearing it for some time. It creates a bit of a unique appearance to each (bronze) watch. This best copy  Longines Legend Diver comes with a beautiful smokey green dial. Green is a color that seems to match with bronze very well, especially in this smokey version that almost turns into black.


Vintage look
On the dial, you’ll find the numerals, indices, and text printed in this nice brown-ish tone, reminding me of the crema on my espresso. It all matches so well together. Somehow, you get the feeling — perhaps sensation is a better word — of looking at a vintage watch. But it is not. The large diameter gives it away, as does the sapphire crystal and L888 self-winding movement. The compressor case has two crowns, of course. One for setting time and the other one to rotate the inner diving bezel. Both are screw-down.
64 hours of power reserve
This Longines Legend Diver in bronze offers a power reserve of 64 hours. The L888(.5) movement is based on the ETA caliber A31.L11. Essentially a movement based on the famous and renowned ETA2892-A2 with some tweaks. Tweaks? Yes, a silicon balance spring and a down-tuned ticking number. Normally, these movements have a ticking speed of 28800vph, but in this case, it is 25200vph. This way, the power reserve is a bit longer than the regular 42 hours of the original ETA2892-A2.
Titanium case back
I already touched upon the titanium case back of the bronze Swiss made copy Longines Legend Diver, but I think it is good to know that even more than steel, titanium is a great choice. Less than 0.6% of people are allergic to titanium, as it won’t even irritate the most sensitive skin. On the case back, you will find the medallion with a diver (with a harpoon!). In our possession was one of the early prototypes, which still had a stainless steel case back. The production model of the Longines Legend Diver in bronze has the titanium back, with the engraving “Bronze case – titanium case back”.
Strap and buckle
Longines fitted a nice vintage looking brown leather strap to this watch, with a tang type buckle. The watch is water-resistant to 300 meters, but if you want to actually use it in the water, make sure to replace the leather strap with something else. Rubber or NATO would do the trick.

The AAA Quality Replica Longines Spirit Collection Inspires Pioneers Of The Next Generation

There are many ways to sell replica watches in the modern world. Some brands focus on the product refinement itself. Some brands rely entirely on their name to shift unit after unit. Others lean on explosive novelty to disrupt the industry and create a stir. Perhaps the best, and certainly the most sustainable route to success, is to take on board all three possibilities and create a sufficiently different product of excellent quality, backed up by a remarkable story. This year, we’ve seen a great many examples of this triple-pronged strategy from cheap fake Longines. In fact, the most surprising thing about this is just how straightforward the brand has made it look…
A gift, generations in the making


What Longines copy has in its locker is impossible to synthesize. History. Heritage. A track-record for excellence and innovation that modern brands cannot hope to match. And it isn’t just about time served at the top of a brutally competitive industry. In truth, it comes down to timing. During which era the most established extant brands first thrived or rose to prominence is more important than the year of foundation.
Longines made its hay in the era of exploration. In the early part of the 20th century, the brand was quick to attach itself to humankind’s greatest endeavors. Although founded way back in 1832 (in Saint-Imier, Switzerland), Longines’ glory days came during the 1920s and ’30s, with the invention of the world’s first high-beat (36,000vph) pocket watch, the rotating bezel for wristwatches, and the world’s first flyback chronograph. These inventions came within a blistering seven-year period for the brand, putting it firmly on the map.
Mapping their own path
And around that time, Longines was becoming more and more associated with the spirit of adventure. Famed aviator, Amelia Earhart flew solo across the Atlantic in 1932, timing her journey with the help of a Longines chronograph. The year before, the daring Elinor Smith had set a new women’s record for altitude, reaching the dizzying heigh of 32,576ft while wearing a swiss movement replica Longines timepiece.
Amazingly, Smith’s first attempt at breaking the record nearly cost her her life (as Earhart’s continued pursuit of excellence eventually did). Around 26,000ft into the climb, Smith’s plane’s engine cut-out and she lost consciousness as the plane nose-dived towards the Earth.

20,000ft into the freefall, with 6,000 valuable feet separating her was almost certain death, she came to. Miraculously, she was able to wrestle the plane under control and land safely in Long Island. Unperturbed, she tried again, with success. Such pioneering spirit has come to typify the Longines brand. The new luxury fake Longines Spirit Collection (which we have written about extensively on Fratello) was created to honor these values.
Old and new frontiers
It wasn’t just airplanes and their pilots that were home to Longines’ instruments. In the 1920s and ’30s, the famous Zeppelin Captain, Hans von Schiller was known to rely upon the Saint-Imier brand’s products. Von Schiller traveled around the world in his 236-meter airship, guided on his journey by his trusted Longines companions.

With his feet firmly on the ground, Paul-Emile Victor was a different kind of Longines-wearing adventurer. Rather than soaring above the clouds in tranquil solitude, Victor preferred exploring the furthest-flung regions of Earth’s landmasses, fraternizing with those he met along the way.
Victor used perfect clone Longines watches to aid in his navigation as he fearlessly explored the poles. Undertaking more than 150 missions and even living with the Inuit people for a time, Victor was a special kind of explorer with a human touch. On more than occasion, he made it clear that his Longines watches had been the difference between success and failure.
