The Hydroconquest watch collection by Longines is renowned for its elegant diving-inspired aesthetics and loved for its affordability. The column wheel chronographs and sleek, crisp design elements are the highlights of the entire collection. Longines’ long-standing tradition in watchmaking is characterised by the elegance and performance of the Swiss company’s products and the Hydroconquest collection seems to sum these qualities up perfectly. The line is dedicated to men and women that are in search of a powerful, sporty timepiece that excels just as much in performance as it does in its bold, attention-demanding looks.
Hydroconquest watches sit under the umbrella of Longines Sports watches. The designs are inspired by technical innovation and highlighted by Longines’ mission to make Swiss watchmaking as elegant as possible whilst remaining faithful to traditional methods of manufacture. Some of the models are bright in colour, further enhancing the Hydroconquest’s dramatic appearance. Some of the highlights of the watches from this collection include unidirectional rotating bezels that only allow for remaining dive time to be reduced rather than extended (a lifesaving feature seen in many of the high-end luxury diver’s watches on the market), an impressive water resistant case up to 300 meters and a number of bi-colour models to name just a few.
Longines Hydroconquest watches are considered the ultimate all-rounder timepiece. With a screw down crown and solid stainless steel case back, the internally fitted movement of each model from this collection is guaranteed the best possible protection from damaging external factors like moisture, heat, magnetism, shock and denting. Longines Hydroconquest watches look good whether combined with a casual jeans and t-shirt ensemble, gym wear or an elegant suit for dining out in a top restaurant. Likewise, they can also add a sporty statement to a professional suit for the office and despite their chunky demeanour and bold wrist presence, will still sit comfortably underneath the sleeve of a suit shirt.
Any Longines watch collector or professional/amateur diver is sure to get their wear out of a Longines Hydroconquest watch. The stainless steel bracelet attached to a watch from this special range, is fitted with a diving extension facility which allows the wearer to equip the watch to the outside of heavy and bulky diving gear and still be able to reference the watch with efficiency whilst under daring depths of the ocean. The extension facility is also useful for non-divers throughout the warmer months of the year since the watch swells in heat. It makes the extension feature on the bracelet a practical and useful tool whether taking to the seas or remaining with feet firmly on dry land. Some of the timepieces are available on a rubber strap or can be switched from stainless syeel bracelet to a rubber strap for those who like their watch to communicate pure sporty elegance.
