As a partner of many of the most prestigious sports events in the world, Longines was keen to launch a collection of timepieces to be worn amidst the excitement of these competitions. As a tribute to the chronographs produced from 1878 on, the famous Swiss watchmaker presents the Conquest Classic line. True to the brand’s values of elegance, tradition and performance, this collection of models, all fitted with self-winding calibres, is at the same time totally contemporary and perfectly timeless.
Without sacrificing elegance, the Conquest line perpetuates the spirit of conquest of all those who have dared to go further than others in their quest for new horizons. The same spirit has been behind the models in the Conquest collection since 1954. Each watch contains a subtle fusion of performance and elegance, including the most demanding technical features.
With the Conquest V.H.P. (Very High Precision) watch, Longines is marking a return to the expert technology the brand originally pioneered: quartz-based watchmaking. Quartz timekeeping was invented in the 1950s, with quartz wristwatches available from 1969. Innovation is ongoing today: this line combines high precision with a movement developed exclusively for the brand, giving the wearer advanced technology and a sporty look.
