LONGINES HydroConquest CHRONO

By TLex Longines have updated their HydroConquest Chronograph divers model. As with the 3 hands models we saw in my post HERE, yesterday; Longines have focused their attention on the dial.



The Longines HydroConquest Automatic Chronograph as a 41mm Stainless steel case with a water-resistance of 300 meters. It is fitted with a Sapphire crystal with AR-coating as well as a unidirectional rotational divers bezel.



There are two dial versions: black or cream, both with Arabic numerals and contrasting black or red bezels inserts. The watch comes with either a solid steel bracelet or a black rubber divers strap with a security folding clasp.



The watch is powered by a Swiss made automatic Longines caliber L688.2 with a column-wheel chronograph, based on the ETA A08-L01 with 27 jewels, 28,800 vph and a power reserve of 54 hours.



There is also a Quartz version, which uses the same 41mm Stainless steel case with divers bezel and an AR-coated Sapphire crystal. It has a water-resistance of 300 meters. The case houses a Swiss quartz Longines caliber L541.2, based on the ETA 252.261 with 27 jewels.



Dials for the quartz version are: black, blue or cream with blue, black or red bezels inserts. It comes with either a solid steel bracelet or a black rubber divers strap with a security folding clasp.
