Longines Admiral 5 Star 7463 Diver
For sale is a Longines 7463.
With an identical design of the watch bezel, the Longines 7463 has always been seen as a Rolex Submariner copy instead of a beautiful homage to the legendary diver.
However, apart from the design of the bezel, the watch design team from Longines has designed the watch in a way that departs from the design of a Submariner. This can be seen right off from the clever selection of the style of indices. Other than the classic arrow marker at 12 o’clock, the team decided to use a circular shaped indices at 6 and 9 o’clock and baton shaped indices for the rest of the dial instead of the typical layout (Baton at 6 and 9 o’clock and circular shaped indices for the rest of the dial).
The clever swap of placement helped the watch look unique with most people not noticing that all they did was swapping the style of indices. However the biggest element of the watch that sets itself apart from the Submariner is the style of hands.
The watch sport a unique vintage inspired reversed broad arrow hands that can be seen on famous vintage divers such as the Yema Superman and Glasshute 969 Spezimatic Type RP TS 200.
The watch is completed with a 38mm with tapered lugs and crown guard protecting the screwdown crown from external shocks.
The watch is in excellent condition with common hairline scratches seen on the case and bracelet. The lume pip is absent on the bezel. The watch dial and hands are free from any damages. The crystal is free from any scratches.
The watch comes on its original bracelet.
