Longines launched a new all-black ceramic version of their iconic HydroConquest timepiece – completing a line recently augmented with variations featuring a bezel enhanced by a coloured ceramic insert. The Longines HydroConquest collection draws its inspiration from the world of aquatic sports, and combines the technical expertise and traditional elegance of the brand.
Longines recently refreshed its HydroConquest line with new sleek models featuring a bezel embellished with a coloured ceramic insert.
With this new timepiece, the brand goes even further in using this exclusive material with a model entirely made from black ceramic whose dial proudly displays its chemical composition: ZrO2. This highly technical and scratch-resistant material is well-suited to the sporty look of the new HydroConquest watch. Its boldness is further heightened by the different finishes of each of its components: a matte dial, a polished case, a round satin bezel and a back blending a circular satin and matte finish.
The HydroConquest collection is an iconic representation of the sports watches created by Longines, and meets the expectations of those who are drawn to the open sea while remaining true to the elegance of the Swiss watchmaker.
Preserving the traditional style of diving watches, the new HydroConquest is inspired by the unique requirements of the sport. Its water resistance to 300 metres, unidirectional rotating bezel, screw-in crown and double security folding clasp are features that emphasize the style and functionality of this timepiece.
Inside its 43 mm case, this three-hand and a calendar watch features a self-winding mechanical movement (L888.3) developed exclusively for Longines. The radiant white of its Super-LumiNova® coated indexes and hands contrasts with the deep black of its dial. The new HydroConquest comes with a black rubber strap offering precise size adjustment for optimal comfort.
