The brand has been operating in Saint-Imier since 1832 — this is the only example of a production that has remained in place for many years, keeping true to its historical values: tradition, elegance and sport. The watch company is expanding its collection of high-precision quartz watches with the new Longines Sport Conquest, which are now worn on comfortable leather straps. The Conquest Longines VHP sports series was first launched in 2017 with stainless steel or rubber straps.
All new versions of the stainless steel case are made in two diameters — 41 and 43 mm. They are combined with silver, black or blue displays with luminous elements. The balanced dial is designed for easy reading. The display with three hands and the date at the 3 o’clock position contains traditional Arabic numerals and black markers with luminescent coating. The second scale is on the flange and the markers are colored red.
The common feature of the collection is the familiar case shape, which was widely used by the brand in the 1945 series of aviation watches. The precise lines and characteristic protrusions of the case create a balance between classic and modern. The main functions are hours, minutes, seconds and date.
The first model comes with a brown leather strap, while others use color matching with the dial. They all fasten with a folding clasp. The sporty chic of the Conquest has increased versatility and elegance.
The vintage elegance of the sporty collection is characterized by innovative quartz technology. The prestigious models embody the quintessential Longines know-how. The actual time without the need for constant monitoring is the main purpose of the watch. It is this concept that the brand offers for people with high demands for precision and aesthetics. All new edition models are equipped with an ETA quartz movement, specially developed for Longines.
The abbreviation VHP stands for Very High Precision and emphasizes the amazing accuracy of the caliber with a deviation of +/- 5 seconds per year. The presence of the GPD (Gear Position Detection) system allows you to reset the current position of the hands after impact or exposure to a magnetic field to ensure accurate time display. Another original surprise is the presence of a perpetual calendar, the dates of which automatically calculate the length of months, leap years up to 2399.
The calendar will always show the correct date without manual adjustment. Long battery life and high precision quartz eliminates lagging. Advanced technical features guarantee the accuracy of a reliable and comfortable watch. The innovative long-life battery is backed by a 4-year warranty.
