Longines HydroConquest XXII Commonwealth Games Limited Edition

As the Official Partner and Timekeeper of the 2022 Commonwealth Games, Swiss watch brand Longines presents the HydroConquest XXII Commonwealth Games limited edition.

The Longines HydroConquest watches are distinguished by their daring design, taking up the codes of diving and aimed at demanding athletes. Water-resistance to 300 metres, a unidirectional rotating bezel, a screw-down crown and case back, and a double security folding clasp with an integrated diving extension-piece are all features that emphasise the style of these timepieces.

Limited to 2,022 pieces, the HydroConquest XXII Commonwealth Games watch boasts the vivid colours of the event logo on its black ceramic bezel, as well as on the minute-track of its black sunray dial. Its 41 mm steel case contains an exclusive self-winding movement with a silicon balance-spring to ensure high-precision and a longer life span.

These characteristics further enhance high-level performance and allow Longines to provide this watch with a 5-year warranty. To accentuate the uniqueness of this model, the case back is engraved with the Birmingham 2022 logo and “Limited Edition – 1 out of 2022”.

A stainless steel bracelet completes this timepiece with sporty and modern lines.

The partnership between Longines and the Commonwealth Games began in the past century, with the 1962 Games in Perth (Australia). It continued with the 2014 edition in Glasgow (Scotland) and 2018 edition in Gold Coast (Australia). A new milestone was set in 2020 with the conclusion of a historic partnership, in which the brand will continue to use its timekeeping expertise in the 2022, 2026 and 2030 Games.
