Longines Hydroconquest Review
Longines is a prominent watch brand based in Saint-Imier since 1832 and takes a lot of pride in its revolutionary tradition of watchmaking. This started when Auguste Agassiz, a former banking expert took interest in watchmaking prompting him to join ventures with two owners of watchmaking shops who will go on and be his partners. He took over the shops in due time, becoming the sole owner of the watchmaking business, but his position as the manager was truncated by a spree of infection.
During the 1950s, Agassiz’s nephew named Ernest Francillon took over the management of the business. In 1966, Francillon’s view of integrating the different stages that go into the actual design of timepieces at the time necessitated him to procure lands in the locality of Longines (Switzerland) and two years later the factory became registered as the Longines brand. The industrial operation under Francillon prospered and expanded, and Agassiz's commercial networks enabled the brand to enjoy continual growth with the watch generating sales on other continents notably America.
The Longines watch brand is now a veritable wonderment in the watchmaking business, it is now a part of the Swatch Group, the world’s leading manufacturer of watches, operates in over 150 countries and has cemented its place among the top sports watch producer. The brand has its famed collection, the Longines Hydroconquest to thank for this.
In 2007, the Longines watch brand went all out to reinvent the world of sport by making some modern addition to the existing Hydroconquest Collection and setting a new benchmark for the world of diving watches. The Hydroconquest surpassed the high standards set about by reliable sports timepieces and is both functional during underwater adventures as well as throughout fine dining gatherings on the beautiful coast and other rest days. This is all thanks to the screwed-in case back and crown of the watch, it’s diving to water resistance up to 30 bar which provides maximum safety during diving, a unidirectional bezel available in different shades of red, black, or blue, to ensure that the bezel is not unintentionally displaced while underwater. Furthermore, the timepiece is legible under any lighting conditions resulting from its Super-Luminova Coated hands and indices. The timepiece is safely fastened to the wrist thanks to the double security folding clasp and integrated diving extension, further allowing a dive to be as secure and carefree as possible.
It is not out of place to say that diving watches equate to underwater excellence, as such numerous versions of the Longine Hydroconquest are suitable not only for diving but also for countless other water sports and here is a detailed guide that gives an overview of the entire spectrum of watches in the LonginesHydroconquest Collection.
