The Saint Imier-based watch creators have been developing timekeeping instruments since the year of 1832. Their masterpieces demonstrate a perfectly balanced recipe of tradition, elegance and performance. Take a glance through our iconic Longines Conquest collection and marvel at the many delights on display. From chronographs, to moonphases, to simple classic designs – Longines have invented a timepiece for every kind of lady or gentleman and every kind of need. The design ethos behind the brand’s Conquest watches, all share one value in common – a distinct versatility. The watches can be worn as sophisticated day-to-day pieces, maybe for a session at the gym, or a run in the park. The bezels and bracelets have been constructed from a robust stainless steel material to protect some of the brand’s most powerful Swiss manufactured mechanical movements.
Longines is distinguishable for its winged hourglass logo which is found on the dial of every timepiece underneath the twelfth hour. The logo is symbolic of the brand’s quality, representing their journey since their birth, in achieving unbeatable performance and world-leading innovation. Every model from the Longines Classic collection has been equipped with a sapphire crystal glass front, which has undergone anti reflective and scratch resistant treatment at the brand’s workshops. The purpose of the sapphire glass, is to protect the beauty of the dial and secure its edges to a solid stainless steel case, integrated with water resistant technology.
As a member of the Swatch group, the components of each masterpiece are produced by a team of experts at the brand’s factories, laboratories and workshops. Escapements, crowns, screws, cases, ceramic and sapphire are all part of a long list of elements, produced by Swatch Group to create each instrument. Many Longines Conquest watches have dials that are instantly recognisable for their Arabic numerals presented at the 12, 6 and 9 o’clock. The remaining hour indexes are commonly represented by hour batons, with a date window at the third hour. Most of the timepieces from this collection are executed on stainless steel bracelets with triple folding security clasps and push release mechanisms. The bracelets add a sophisticated edge to each timepiece, allowing them to be worn for special evening occasions, when combined with gentleman’s jewellery and silver cufflinks.
Other variations from the Longines Conquest collection feature timepieces with rose gold accents. The Longines Conquest Classic 29.5mm Rose Gold and Steel watch for example, features a beautifully polished rose gold bezel with matching rose gold central hands and a mother of pearl dial.
