Anything related to the war will draw the attention from the public including the military timepieces. The Longines Heritage Military COSD watches were especially created for the British Airborne. Longines always considers its historical heritage as treasure and the perfect fake Longines watch has been created to reproduce the appearance of the original model.
As all the military watches were equipped with self-manufactured movement, they were all with the value of standard of military. Although it is created with the inspiration of the original COSD model, the details of this white dial copy Longines Heritage have been changed in consideration of daily use. People who know the history well will know the broad arrow symbol on the dial represent the British Military.
The heritage model has maintained all the classic elements of the original model and the logo was kept exactly the same with the old one. The popular NATO nylon strap takes the place of the classic leather strap, enhancing the military style excellently.
In 1950s, the US navy ordered a new military diving watch from Tudor, which was named as “Command” project, but at last, the project was shelved. You may be surprised that why the military watch “Commando” was not adopted by US navy. Today I will introduce the history to you.
The world seemed to be in peace after the Second World War in 1945. But the US and Soviet Union never stopped developing their military equipment. At that time, it is not only the huge military equipment, but also the military watches were developed and tried by US military. It was exactly the suspended Commando project. The requirements of the diving watches from US navy were not complicated. Durability, robustness, locked bezel and good waterproofness. So the steel case copy Tudor with strange appearance was designed.
Everyone knows that the project was abandoned by US navy. Why? If you think carefully you will understand it. In order to achieve the purpose of the durable and robust bezel that US navy required, the buckle Tudor designed was too complicated and troublesome. It was also not convenient to the wearers. The new perfect Tudor Black Bay imitation watch perfectly reproduced the appearance of the original model. Of course, the shortage has been copied too. The bezel is not convenient to operate.
