Longines entered the diving watch market a little late compared to its competitors. The brand is mainly known for its chronographs, a specialty that it has developed since the end of the 19th century and which has led it to become a reference supplier for the most prestigious competitions.

The Longines Skin Diver ref. 6921, also known as "Nautilus", is the first model dedicated to scuba diving of the brand. Although waterproof watches had already been present in the range for a long time, especially with the famous three-touch screwed back.

In 1957, Longines launched a robust watch with a diameter of 40mm to compete, moreover the watch is associated with a steel bracelet Longines. The dimensions of the Skin Diver are significant compared to its competitors of the time, including the Omega Seamaster 300 CK2913, Rolex Submariner 6538, Eberhard Scafograf 200 or Zenith s.58, which measured between 36 and 39mm.

The case back has no external inscription, but features a stylized diver in the middle of an underwater hunt, harpoon in hand, underscoring the watch's professional vocation. The words longines watches swiss, the reference and a three-digit serial number are found on the inside of the case back.

Another interesting feature of this watch is the fluted bezel made of plastic resin "Bakelite", equipped with luminous markings. This is unique to the single-crown Super-Compressors of this era.

The watch has been revised by our watchmakers and is guaranteed for 3 years.
