On this occasion, Ms. Karen Au Yeung, Vice-President of LONGINES Hong Kong was delighted to present Eddie with the latest Conquest V.H.P. timepiece. The Conquest V.H.P. collection equipped with an exclusive movement, which is renowned for its high degree of precision for an analog watch (± 5 s/yr) and its ability to reset its hands after an impact or exposure to a magnetic field, using the GPD (Gear Position Detection) system. It also features a very long battery life and a perpetual calendar that extends to 2399.
