Longines Heritage Military COSD Watch Review
The hands and five-minute markers are lumed and glow nicely with additional points at twelve o’clock. The color would suggest that Longines has used Superluminova C3, which glows brightly with a green signature and I'm thankful that they avoided the current popularity of faux-aged lume. While not as bright as a serious dive watch, the Longines Heritage Military COSD’s lume is perfectly functional without compromising the attempt towards mirroring the reference design of the 2340. Much like the reference design, and true to the ethos of a field watch, legibility is excellent in any situation, especially with the added contrast of the silver dial. That said, I do rather miss the detail seen on the tip of the 2340's seconds hand, that distinctive skeleton design element is beautiful and it would have been a welcome bit of detail on the Longines Heritage Military COSD.
