On the Occasion of its 180th anniversary, Longines, the famous Swiss watchmaker based in the town of Saint-Imier enhances its iconic Conquest line with a new elegant and emblematic world traveler’s timepiece: The Conquest 24 hours.
With its demanding technical characteristics, the Conquest series is a high performance and elegant timepiece collection that designed to cater the needs of world travelers who like to discover new horizons. The new Conquest 24 hours now adds a second time zone, a tool used by pilots crossing different time-zones in both directions. As the sun was not always visible as a point of reference, instruments were needed that could immediately indicated the correct part of the day. With a 24-hour dial navigators had no problem in this respect.
The new Conquest 24 hours will attract people with an adventurous streak always trying to get a step further without sacrificing elegance. With its water-resistance to 5 bar (50 m), this model is not only a reliable partner in the air but also under water.
The robust, yet elegant stainless steel case of the new Conquest 24 hours has a diameter of 41 mm and houses a self-winding mechanical movement. The sapphire glass with anti-reflective coating on the underside protects a black, silvered or blue dial with 2 applied Arabic numerals and 9 applied indices.
Rhodium-plated hands with Super-LumiNova show hours, minutes and seconds, the date is indicated at 3 o’clock. The bright red 24-hour hand immediately attracts the eye. All models are available on a stainless steel bracelet and have a screw-in back cover and crown. Another feature is the lateral protection for the crown.
