Building on its expertise in the world of sports, Longines is expanding its HydroConquest collection this year, offering reimagined variations. Combining technical excellence and traditional elegance both hallmarks of the winged hourglass brand, these watches feature a bezel enhanced with a coloured ceramic insert adding a touch of brilliance and modern styling. These new, refined models derive their inspiration from the fascinating world of aquatic sports.
Longines iconic HydroConquest collection, meets the expectations of those who are drawn to the open sea while remaining true to the elegance of the Swiss watchmaker. HydroConquest timepieces preserve the traditional style of diving watches, inspired by the unique requirements of the sport. The distinctive characteristics of this collection include water-resistance to 300 metres, a unidirectional rotating bezel, screw-down crown and case back, crown protection and a double security folding clasp with integrated diving extension.
Highly technical and innovative ceramic has been added to the bezel of the new HydroConquest models. Ultra resistant and scratch-resistant, this insert, which matches the colour of the dial, ties together the fully modernized design and sporty silhouette of this collection. The brilliance of the hands and the hour markers adorned with Super-LumiNova® stand out in sharp contrast to the dark look of the new grey, black and blue sunray dials. More ergonomic and more comfortable, the strap has also been upgraded, with colours that match the dial, while the metal version combines polished and brushed steel for a truly impressive finish.
Available in 41 mm and 43 mm sizes for models with three hands and a calendar, and 41 mm for the chronograph model, the new variations of the HydroConquest collection will take their rightful places on the wrists of aquatic sports lovers who are looking for the perfect blend of performance and elegance.
