HydroConquest, the sports-elegant model of Longines, now draws attention with its lush green appearance.
Blue is among the indispensable colors for the luxury watchmaking industry. Yet, there is another color becoming popular fast: Green. I am one of those who believe that every color has energy. Green, which reminds nature, is one of the colors that boost creativity, make you feel relaxed and peaceful. Thus, whenever I see a green dial watch, I cannot stop myself from liking it.
Longines followed the rising trend and added a new model with a green dial and bezel to the HydroConquest collection, which was inspired by diving and nature. Longines HydroConquest comes with a stainless steel case available in 41mm and 43mm diameter options to fit different wrist sizes. The model, which meets the demands of professional divers effortlessly, features a uni-directional bezel with a green ceramic insert in line with the dial. Equipped with a screw-lock case back and a winding crown, the model is water-resistant to 300 meters.
The self-winding Caliber L888.3, based on the ETA A3I.LOI and offering a 64-hour power reserve when fully wound, powers the Longines HydroConquest.
Ten cabochon-cut markers and large Arabic indices stylize the model's green dial. Rhodium-plated hands and indices are legible enough even in darker conditions thanks to the Super-LumiNova phosphor material application. A sapphire crystal rises on the dial, where the date indicator is located at 3 o'clock.
Longines HydroConquest is available with an easily replaceable stainless steel bracelet or micro-adjustable green rubber strap.
