The Conquest V.H.P.
Longines’ history with quartz is filled with technical innovations. In 1954, the first quartz watch set a precision record at the Neuchâtel Observatory. It was fitted into the legendary Chronocinégines, an instrument that became a pioneer in the history of timekeeping, as it provided judges with a film strip composed of a series of prints, allowing them to follow the athletes’ movement as they crossed the finish line. In 1969, Longines revealed the Ultra-Quartz, the first quartz movement designed for wristwatches.
As an extension of these historic milestones, Conquest V.H.P. stands out for its precision and ability to reset its hands after an impact or exposure to a magnetic field.
These steel or black PVD models are available in two sizes (42 and 44 mm in diameter) and display hours, minutes and seconds, a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock, a 12-hour counter at 9 o’clock and a 60-second counter in the centre. On each model, manipulations are simplified thanks to the intelligent crown, while two distinct indicators preventively signal the end of battery life. Conquest V.H.P. chronographs boast blue, carbon fibre, silvered or black dials. A steel, or blue or black rubber watch strap completes these exceptional timepieces.
