Longines News & Releases

You can find many Longines watches at Banks Lyon, as we’re official stockists for this world-renowned Swiss brand.

Fans of the brand have come to expect the best of the best when it comes to practicality, craftsmanship and design, and the Longines HydroConquest range, ideal for divers, is no exception.

By choosing one of these pieces for your collection, you benefit from a high-performance watch you can take with you wherever you go, whether on land or in the water. Take a look at what makes the HydroConquest such an excellent choice for sports fans and watch enthusiasts alike.

The Longines HydroConquest Collection

The watchmaker was founded in 1832 in Saint-Imier by Auguste Agassiz. Since then, it has been known for its sophistication, prestige and focus on tradition (while creating innovative products at the same time).

Longines has a long-standing tradition in the world of sports, having been the official timekeeper for many sporting events worldwide, including the French Open and the Commonwealth Games. Longines sports watches include the HydroConquest line, which is a great tool for both professional and amateur divers.

The watches in the collection come with a high level of water resistance (up to 300 metres), which is not surprising considering the brand’s connection to the world of sports and its passion for creating pieces that are precise and functional.

Another benefit of the HydroConquest family of watches is that it offers a touch of elegance and style to any outfit. Just because you want a piece you can dive with, you don’t have to compromise on aesthetics – so, the watches are also perfect for anyone seeking an everyday companion or a piece to wear to the office.

Longines HydroConquest Automatic Watch

Another HydroConquest piece you don’t want to miss out on! Blue is a popular colour for high-end watches, and it’s easy to see why – the hue adds elegance to an already sophisticated design, allowing it to stand out from the crowd even more.

This diving watch is made from stainless steel, a sturdy material that keeps the self-winding automatic movement safe when you’re swimming in great depths. The scratch-resistant sapphire crystal also helps to keep your watch in top condition even if you accidentally knock it while exploring the ocean.

This piece also provides luminosity in the hands and numerals, guaranteeing dial readability even when deep underwater (the watch is water-resistant up to 300 metres, where visibility is greatly reduced).

Just like the other pieces in the collection, the watch has a unidirectional bezel to help you measure time while protecting you against accidental nudges, and the lume ensures you can easily read the hours and minutes even in low visibility conditions.
