News from the underwater world of Longines: the HydroConquest boasts now a rotating bezel made of scratch-resistant ceramic in the same color as the dial and a reworked stainless steel bracelet. Its distinctive dial design and water-resistance to 30 bar have remained unchanged. The watch is available in three colors and two sizes, with a dial diameter of 41 and 43 millimeters. Powered by a self-winding movement, it comes in a stainless steel case fitted with either a stainless steel bracelet or a natural rubber strap.
"A sporty diver’s watch that withstands everyday challenges and goes perfectly with a business suit thanks to its sturdy yet elegant design."
Nick Siemer, Product Manager Watches at Wempe
Water-resistant to high pressure
Only a watch that is resistant to a pressure of at least 20 bar may be called a diver’s watch. This means it would be water-resistant up to a depth of approx. 200 meters. The HydroConquest from Longines with a screw-in crown surpasses this requirement by many meters—featuring a water-resistance of 30 bar. This corresponds to the water pressure at a depth of approx. 300 meters.
Safe and sturdy in the depth
Safety is the utmost concern during diving. The scratch-resistant ceramic bezel can therefore be rotated in one direction only; and the hands are coated with Super-LumiNova® luminous mass to ensure perfect legibility under water. The clarity of the dial is further enhanced by the setting ring with minute scale and highlighted 5-minute markers. The double security folding clasp with integrated diving extension can easily be operated even when wearing neoprene gloves.
A clear statement also in everyday life
The HydroConquest from Longines is not only resistant and sturdy under water but makes also an elegant appearance under pressure at the office. Those who change between diving and business suits will find their perfect companion in this adaptable diving watch.
