    Well, I'll get the ball rolling by pointing out that they completely failed to use the "Calatrava" description, which is both shocking, and a huge disappointment. :D

    I like the look of the Skin Diver but wish they made it in a 36mm variant like their Heritage Diver. 42mm case with 22mm lugs does not really go with a skin diver aesthetic.

    This. I would’ve bought one if it was 36mm-38mm, which would’ve made it more manageable lug-to-lug length. I believe it’s close to 51mm now, and that’s just way too long for someone with thinner wrists such as myself.

    This at 36 or 38mm size would have been incredible! Such a shame.

    Can only hope they may see fit in the future as they did with the LLD.

    Yeah, I would totally have gone for a smaller skin-diver, and spent quite a while trying to find one of the mythical 36mm LLDs to no avail. The 42 is a long, imposing watch and the proportions don't quite work IMO, especially compared to something like the BB36.

    I do think they've hit quite a few of these out of the proverbial park, however -- step forward the Sector, BigEye, Hour Angle, etc. I'm even guilty of preferring (and keeping) my BigEye over my Speedy Pro. And I'd pick up at least a few others if I could find them easily.

    I saw this online - absolutely love this. It's the first of all of the modern Heritage Chronographs they have made in the last 10 years that I like to be frank. But given the automatic movement, it's likely to be too thick for me.

    Oh god. I love the longines heritage line. I can see these being where my 2020 watch fund goes. Great value and good looking pieces assuming they get the lug lengths right!

    Pushers are BIG. I like them smaller.

    That black dial Flagship is quite nice.

    Any idea when these are going to be available?
