Introducing The Longines Hydroconquest In Green

Fast Take

On top of the blue, dim, and dark executions, there’s currently a couple of green Longines Hydroconquest watches in the blend. The model comes in two sizes, 41mm and 43mm, and Longines is onto something in contribution a similar watch in two distinctive case sizes. The new tone is suggestive of olive dreary, a shading broadly utilized in military applications. The watches are made for victories of the ocean all things considered, and 300 meters of water opposition backs that up. 

The expansion of green balances the Hydroconquest assortment to four tones. It’s an in vogue tone in the watch universe of 2020, so it’s not astonishing that Longines got in on the activity with the Hydroconquest. The Hydroconquest was first presented by Longines right back in 2007 and has been with us from that point forward as Longines’ essential current jump watch assortment – as opposed to its vintage-style jumpers, which incorporate the Legend Diver and Skin Diver.

Beginning Thoughts

The plan language of the Hydroconquest appears to riff off components that are broadly recognizable to the horologically disposed: The hands and the arabic numerals bring to mind notable plans that have been fight tried for the better 50% of a century. The uni-directional bezel utilizes a typeface which has become standard in the plunge watch world too. Be that as it may, what’s totally new is the type inside.

Longines was one of the early adopters of the Supercompressor case during the ’60s, a plan by EPSA that really turned out to be more water safe the more profound it went. Longines restored the plan language four years back with the Legend Diver , yet the Hydroconquest doesn’t work off any current model. All things being equal, the line addresses another plan from Longines – one that looks to the future as opposed to the past.
