Longines HydroConquest new all-black ceramic version is pre-selected by the 2019 jury of the GPHG in the Diver’s watch category

Corporate
September 11, 2019

Longines is proud to announce that its HydroConquest new all-black ceramic version has been pre-selected by the 2019 jury of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève in the Diver’s watch category. This timepiece was launched internationally in the beginning of the year.

The GPHG's international jury, composed of some 30 experts with a variety of skills, conducts two rounds of voting by secret ballot in an entirely independent manner. The freedom of the jury salutes the creative audacity, technical and artistic genius, passion and expertise that have been nurturing the vitality of the watchmaking for centuries. The winners will be announced on Thursday November 7th 2019, at the 19th GPHG Awards Ceremony, to be held at the Théâtre du Léman in Geneva.

 

About the new HydroConquest timepiece

Longines has recently given its HydroConquest line a new brilliance by creating sleek models featuring a bezel embellished with a coloured ceramic insert. Today, the brand goes even further in using this exclusive material with a model entirely made from black ceramic whose dial proudly displays its chemical composition: ZrO2. This highly technical and scratch-resistant material is perfectly suited to the sporty look of the new HydroConquest watch. Its boldness is further heightened by the different finishes of each of its components: a matte dial, a polished case, a round satin bezel and a back blending a circular satin and matte finish.

An iconic representation of the sports watches created by Longines, the HydroConquest collection meets the expectations of those who are drawn to the open sea while remaining true to the elegance of the Swiss watchmaker. Preserving the traditional style of diving watches, the new HydroConquest is inspired by the unique requirements of the sport. Its water resistance to 300 metres, unidirectional rotating bezel, screw-in crown and double security folding clasp are all features that emphasize the style of this timepiece.

Inside its 43 mm case, this three-hand and a calendar watch features a self-winding mechanical movement (L888.3) developed exclusively for Longines. The radiant white of its Super-LumiNova® coated indexes and hands contrasts with the deep black of its dial. The new HydroConquest comes with a black rubber strap offering precise size adjustment for optimal comfort.

With its strong identity and highly distinguished lines, this all-ceramic version will find its rightful place on the wrists of aquatic sports lovers who seek to combine performance and elegance.
