Longines Unveils Conquest Heritage Central Power Reserve: A Timeless Tribute To Innovation And Elegance

Longines, renowned for its heritage of innovation and elegance, celebrates the 70th anniversary of its iconic Conquest collection with the introduction of the Conquest Heritage Central Power Reserve. A masterpiece of watchmaking prowess, this timepiece pays homage to the original Conquest model while incorporating cutting-edge technology and design.

The Conquest collection, a symbol of daring and creativity, gained recognition in 1954 when its name was officially protected by the Federal Intellectual Property Office in Berne, Switzerland. Since then, it has been synonymous with sport and achievement, boasting features such as self-winding mechanisms and water resistance from its inception.

To mark this significant milestone, Longines presents the Conquest Heritage Central Power Reserve, featuring a unique power reserve indicator displayed on two rotating discs at the center of the dial. This innovative mechanism, exclusively developed by Longines, offers a visual representation of the watch’s remaining running time, creating a poetic effect of the passage of time.

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the Conquest Heritage Central Power Reserve features a redesigned 38mm steel case with alternating satin-finished and polished surfaces, topped by a box sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment. The lugs have been redesigned for enhanced ergonomics and comfort, ensuring a perfect fit for every wearer.

Powered by the exclusive Longines L896.5 calibre, this self-winding mechanical movement boasts a silicon balance-spring and innovative components, providing exceptional magnetic resistance up to ten times greater than the industry standard. The transparent screw-down case back allows enthusiasts to admire the intricate craftsmanship of the movement.

Available in champagne, anthracite, or black, the three-part dial of the Conquest Heritage Central Power Reserve is adorned with yellow gold-colored, rose gold-colored, or silver-colored applied facetted hour markers. The date window at 12 o’clock adds a touch of sophistication, while the skyscraper-style hour and minute hands coated with Super-LumiNova® ensure optimal visibility in any lighting conditions.

Completing the ensemble are black or grey leather straps fitted with a new steel pin buckle, offering both style and comfort to the wearer. With its blend of timeless elegance and technological innovation, the Conquest Heritage Central Power Reserve exemplifies Longines’ commitment to excellence and craftsmanship, making it a must-have accessory for discerning enthusiasts and collectors alike.
