Nuovi Hydroconquest Bicolore
New Dual Tone Iconic Hydroconquest
It is the solidity and accessibility of the Longines HydroConquest watch that makes it a useful tool for both amateur and professional divers. Of course, the rugged yet classically designed watches in this collection are more than at home on land as well. The Saint-Imier-based manufacturer first launched the HydroConquest watch in 2007, but redesigned it in 2018 with color-coordinated dials and ceramic bezels in black, blue or gray, an improved movement, two dimensions of the 41mm or 43mm case and a metal bracelet or rubber strap option. Since then, Longines has also launched an all-black ceramic model and a version with a green dial / bezel. Now Longines expands the HydroConquest watch collection with a series of two-tone versions available in steel and yellow gold PVD or steel and rose gold PVD. These green, blue, black and gray dial color options are only available in the 41mm case size, but feature a movement that promises extended power reserve.
A STURDY AND MODERN CASE
Unlike the Longines Legend Diver and Skin Diver lines, the watches in the HydroConquest collection have always maintained a relatively affordable price and a modern style. The 41mm sports watch offers all the key qualities of a diving buddy: water resistance up to 300 meters, unidirectional rotating bezel, readable luminous indexes, sealed caseback and screw-down crown. The cases of the new two-tone HydroConquest models are also flush with the wrist with a height of 12 mm and slightly curved lugs that slide into the bracelet or rubber strap. As before, the two crown guards form a shield around the crown, which is also designed with ridges for an easy-grip structure. To ensure that the watch can be worn over heavy diving equipment, the bracelet is equipped with a double folding clasp and an integrated diving extension
The new two-tone Longines HydroConquest uses the self-winding caliber L888. The movement features an improved 72-hour power reserve over the previous 64-hour running time of the 2018 models. It also features a silicon hairspring to protect against magnetic forces and beating at a rate of 25,200 vibrations per hour.
