Longines Presents Four New HydroConquest Executions with GMT Functionality

The Swiss brand with a winged sandglass in its logo once again draws upon its many years of experience in the discipline of sport watches, now rebooting the popular HydroConquest in a new model generation. Water resistant to 300 meters, this 2007-premiered dive watch collection combines high technological standards with Longines distinctive elegance, importantly bringing GMT capabilities to the line for the first time. 

The HydroConquest GMT boasts a 41mm stainless steel case with a height of 12.9mm, which features alternating polished and satin-finished surfaces. It is equipped with a new unidirectional ceramic bezel. As for the dial, Longines offers four intriguing color choices – green, brown, black and blue, all enhanced with a sunray finish. The gilt or silvered polished hands and hour markers are coated with Superluminova. The second time zone is indicated by a central hand with an arrow-tip and a 24-hour scale on the periphery.

At the heart of the HydroConquest GMT beats a new, Longines exclusive automatic movement. The caliber L844.5 comes with a power reserve of 72 hours and is equipped with a silicon-balance spring and other components made of non-magnetic materials. According to the brand, it is ten times more resistant to magnetic fields than the ISO 764 standard requires.

Also newly designed is the stainless steel bracelet with H-sphard links. It features a micro-adjusting clasp, which is a first for Longines. Complementing the colors of the dial, the HydroConquest GMT is also available with rubber and NATO straps.

Pricing starts at $2,675.

    Longines did not need to go there but they did…
