Founded in 1954, the Longines Conquest collection was the first step towards the brand’s renewed strategy of product development and families. Before the 1950s, Longines did not create entirely in-house products. This development was a milestone in the legacy of Longines and the Conquest collection holds a special place inside the Weems of Longines.
As simple as it gets, the Conquests also displays a bold yet charismatic persona on the wrist. In most of the timepieces, the Conquest features index markers and in some cases Roman numerals at the 12 and 6 o’clock markers. The hours and minutes are marked by meticulously designed by sword hands, whereas, there is also a date window at the 3 o’clock marker. Taking inspiration from the dive watches, there is also a protected crown.
For women, the Conquest features a mother-of-pearl dial, providing a more elegant approach towards the bold Conquest.
The Longines Conquest collection is available in both quartz and automatic movement. Inside the automatic Conquests, the mechanical movement is the in-house L888. The L888 is a robust movement that provides a power reserve of approximately 64 hours.
