Exclusive Longines HydroConquest collection comes to the United States
July 06, 2018
Building on its expertise in the world of sports, Longines has expanded its HydroConquest collection with the new USA Exclusive HydroConquest models, whose design elements pay homage to the United States, a country where so much significant Longines history has been written.
Deriving inspiration from the world of aquatic sports, the USA Exclusive HydroConquest watches feature a high polish, ultra scratch-resistant ceramic insert on its bezel, cleverly contrasted with a unique matte texture applied between 12 o’clock and 3 o’clock. A streamlined dial enhanced by red indices brings a colorful highlight to the timepiece design, while the initials USA in the bottom right corner of the dial and a luminous numeral 50 in the upper left corner of the bezel pays further tribute to the 50 States.
The colorful ceramic bezel accent carries through to the matching dial, tying together the fully modernized design and sporty silhouette of this 1000-piece exclusive collection. The brilliance of the hands and the hour markers adorned with Super-LumiNova® stand out in sharp contrast to the dark look of the new grey, black, and blue sunray dials. On the case back, an engraved American flag motif continues the vibrant theme that defines the USA Exclusive HydroConquest collection.
Available in stainless steel, black PVD or grey PVD, these HydroConquest timepieces preserve the traditional style of diving watches, inspired by the unique requirements of the sport. These distinctive characteristics include water-resistance to 300 metres, a unidirectional rotating bezel, screw-down crown and case back, all of which work together to protect its self-winding mechanical movement. Meanwhile, a double security folding clasp with integrated diving extension fastens the sport watch securely to the wrist.
The USA Exclusive HydroConquest edition is perfectly presented in its own specialty packaging in a box including both a rubber NATO strap – with colors matching the dial- and an ergonomically designed stainless steel, black PVD or grey PVD bracelet, offering collectors and enthusiasts stylish options for land or sea.
Available in 41 mm for models with three hands and a calendar, the new USA Exclusive HydroConquest Collection salutes the fifty states with a distinctive style that represents the perfect blend of performance and elegance.
