Longines has added new models to its HydroConquest collection, the successful diver's watch that has been in its product line for a long time.
The HydroConquest Collection, which has been in the Longines product group since 2007, is known as the veteran brand's successful model family in the modern diver's watch segment. The model family, which had 41mm and 43mm case options, a ceramic bezel insert, and rubber strap alternatives besides an improved movement with the renovation applied in 2018, continues to expand with new models designed in the Two-Tone concept.
The new models come in yellow gold PVD coating/stainless steel and rose gold PVD coating/stainless steel options. Yellow gold PVD plated/stainless steel versions are offered with a blue, black, or green dial and bezel, while pink gold PVD coating/stainless steel options come in blue, black, or gray color options. In addition to the stainless steel bracelet with gold PVD plated center links, the models are also available with rubber straps in black, blue, gray, and green.
Modern HydroConquest style stainless steel cases with a diameter of 41mm are accompanied by a yellow or rose gold PVD coated bezel and crown. The case, water-resistant to 300 meters, features an AR-coated sapphire crystal and a ceramic insert bezel on the fronts side and a screw-in case back at the rear side.
Sunray patterned dials are accompanied by Arabic numeral and dot markers gold plated in matching tones. The dials with Longines HydroConquest style hands in the same tone have a date window at 3 o'clock. Thanks to Super-LumiNOVA phosphor-applied accents, sufficient legibility is provided even in darker environments.
All models are powered by the Longines Caliber L888. The new generation automatic movement based on ETA A31.L02 operates at a frequency of 4Hz (28.800vph) and offers 3 days/72 hours of power reserve when fully wound. The new models are priced at EUR 1,670 (for each).
