In recognition of these historic milestones, Longines has launched the new Conquest VHP, equipped with a movement developed by the ETA manufacturing company exclusively for Longines.
This movement is renowned for its high degree of precision for an analog watch as well as its ability to reset its hands after an impact or exposure to a magnetic field, using the GPD (gear position detection) system.
In the true essence of Conquest, Longines’ ultimate sports line of watches, this exceptional timepiece brings together high technicality and dynamic aesthetic.
The steel Conquest VHP watches are available in the three hands/calendar (41mm and 43mm diameter cases) and chronograph (42mm and 44mm diameter cases) versions. The chronograph displays hours, minutes and seconds, a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock, a 12-hour counter at 9 o’clock and a 60-second counter in the centre.
The Conquest VHP collection displays blue, carbon, silvered or black dials. A steel bracelet with a folding safety clasp completes the design.
