Longines Conquest watches are a harmonious collaboration of sporty elegance and traditional craftsmanship. Defined by their athletic looks and charming characteristics, these timepieces bridge the gap between something sophisticated and something casual but elegant. With robust cases, Conquest watches are developed to withstand the impact of jolts and magnetic forces. Some of the designs feature chronographs capable of timing 1/100th of a second, whilst others feature simple three handed dial designs surrounded by chiselled stainless steel cases equipped with impressive water resistant capabilities.
Longines Conquest watches vary from jet black dials to sophisticated silver models. The VHP timepieces which promise ultimate accuracy with their movements that only deviate 5 seconds per year, are defined by their oversized Arabic numerals at 12 and 6 o’clock. Some watches from the Conquest collection feature second time zones making them perfect travelling companions. The range offers a mixture of quartz powered timepieces and mechanically driven watches. Perpetual calendars feature throughout the range with their high-tech systems that automatically move the hands back to their correct position after being affected by magnetic forces or after being exposed to a hard sudden jolt.
Aesthetically a Longines Conquest watch is easy to wear thanks to its versatile design. Those built with an automatic movement instantly strike up a connection with the wearer since some of the watches are equipped with a sapphire crystal glass exhibition caseback for showcasing some of the company’s finest haute horology. The chronograph models from the Longines Conquest watch range are incredibly precise and are powered by the caliber L440, based on an ETA caliber. The scale around the edge of the watch can be used to see how many hundredth of seconds have been timed. One technological highlight of the Conquest collection is the VHP model. With a gear position detection system (GPDS) the location of the hands are remembered and the watch resumes the hands to the correct positioning after being hit by shock impact. The Longines Conquest VHP Blue watch from our collection features a 43mm stainless steel bezel and a matching stainless steel bracelet with foldable clasp. The watch is powered by the Swiss quartz VHP movement which sits inside a 50 meter water resistant housing.
