Longines HydroConquest Automatic Watch

Longines HydroConquest Automatic Watch Black
Building on its expertise in the world of sports, Longines is expanding its HydroConquest collection this year, offering reimagined variations. Combining technical excellence and traditional elegance, these watches feature a bezel enhanced with a coloured ceramic insert adding a touch of brilliance and modern styling.

This ceramic insert also adds pizzazz to the watch, since it is matched to the dial and strap – either black, grey or blue – reinforcing the vibrant colour. For contrast and readability, the hands and indexes are coated with Super-LumiNova, and the numerals on the bezel are white. This is a true diver’s watch, with 300-metre water resistance, a unidirectional rotating bezel, screw-down crown and case back, crown protector and a double security folding clasp with integrated diving extender. There are two versions, including a 41 mm chronograph model and a 41 mm or 43 mm three-hand with calendar. Each version contains an automatic mechanical movement.
