The watchmaker from Saint-Imier enhances its iconic collection of sports watches with a quartet of new up-to-the-minute designed references, all ready to travel the world.
The 2007-launched HydroConquest collection rapidly made its mark as a Longines‘ classic. The watches have got everything it takes to accompany you on land as well as out at sea, as their features are totally on a par with the best divers around. This year, the winged-hourglass brand showcases a shrewd upgrade, the HydroConquest GMT. Even though the 41 mm-diameter steel case still boasts waterproofness guaranteed down to depths of 300 meters, these references stand out with a new function able to manage a second time zone. This noteworthy difference is displayed via a special hand on the dial proposed in green, brown, black or blue with a sunray finish. This arrow-tipped hand completes its gyrations in 24 hours. A colorful, graduated scale placed on the flange enable the wearer to keep their bearings. And, to make sure time data reading is excellent, all the hands as well as the indexes are coated with Super-LumiNova®. Also worth a mention is the novel notched unidirectional rotating ceramic bezel that encircles the scenography.
The HydroConquest GMT models are driven by the L844.5 caliber. This selfwinding movement, with silicon balance spring, delivers a comfortable power reserve of 72 hours to the time data and the date. Each piece can be worn, as wished, on a steel bracelet, a NATO or rubber strap attached by a folding clasp. The HydroConquest GMT issues as such a visa to head off on adventures whenever you please, wherever.
