Longines HydroConquest

Equipped with a strong steel case, which is also extended by a steel watchband, alternating polished and satin finishes, the piece, like any certified diver, favours legibility. To this end, it features large Arabic numerals that punctuate its dial, and alternating round markers to separate five minute segments.

Two large luminescent hands are set above the assembly allowing time to be read in all circumstances, even in low light. The assembly is supplemented by a seconds hand, which also ends with a luminescent marker, in addition to a date aperture at 3 o’clock.

The 43 mm case is designed to be a model of strength, with a wide ribbed crown, offering a perfect grip, even with diving gloves. It is protected on both sides by crown-guards that prevent any hazardous handling. The HydroConquest is waterproof to 300 metres, thanks to its crown and screwed bottom. It is adorned with a deep blue hue reminiscent of its maritime roots. A perfect compromise of technical excellence and elegance, this model will be a go-to piece for all athletes and active collectors looking for an every day piece.
