Longines HydroConquest Gets a GMT Boost

Longines Malaysia recently unveiled a highly anticipated addition to their iconic HydroConquest collection at their new boutique in the Exchange TRX mall. This exquisite sports watch line receives a fresh update with sleek new models featuring an exclusive Longines GMT movement.

First launched in 2007, the HydroConquest has become a beloved choice for its sporty design and exceptional performance. This latest iteration takes the collection to new heights, seamlessly blending timeless elegance with a first-ever GMT complication for the HydroConquest line.

The GMT function, a hallmark of Longines’ heritage dating back to 1925, allows you to effortlessly track time across two different time zones. This innovative addition caters to the modern-day adventurer, the frequent traveler, and the discerning sportsperson, ensuring your timepiece is as versatile as your journeys.

Longines masterfully blends modern technology with a touch of retro charm in the HydroConquest GMT. The 41mm stainless steel case boasts a redesigned screw-down back, housing the exclusive new Longines GMT caliber. This advanced movement features a silicon balance-spring and cutting-edge non-magnetic materials, making it an impressive 10 times more resistant to magnetic fields than industry standards. The caliber also delivers exceptional precision and a remarkable 72-hour power reserve.

The HydroConquest GMT stuns with its functionality and aesthetics. The unidirectional notched ceramic bezel, luminescent capsule, and screw-in crown offer exceptional durability for underwater exploration. The polished and satin-finished surfaces create a sophisticated look, while the choice of green, brown, black, and blue sunray dials adds a touch of personality.

For optimal readability, the gilt or silvered hands and hour-markers are coated with Super-LumiNova®, standing out against the two-tone 24-hour scale. The date window at 3 o’clock keeps you informed, while the arrow-shaped GMT indicator complements the dial’s overall colour scheme.

Water-resistant up to 300 meters, the HydroConquest GMT is built to withstand the elements. The stainless-steel bracelet with redesigned H-shaped links offers a secure and comfortable fit, further enhanced by the first-ever Longines micro-adjusting clasp.

For a more casual look, the HydroConquest GMT also comes with a choice of blue or black rubber straps with micro-adjusting folding clasps, or a stylish khaki-green or beige NATO strap.
