longines HydroConquest 41 Automatic Stainless Steel

Hey everyone, today I’ve put together a Longines Hydroconquest review for you to read through. This is a detailed review that I’ve been meaning to do for some time now.You may be wondering why I’m only now talking about a watch that’s been available for a good 10 years? I’ll tell you why, it offers fantastic value for money.
You see, the Longines HydroConquest is quite an interesting timepiece to feature, this automatic diving watch has a 41mm diameter stainless steel casing, a solid screw down caseback, an impressive water resistance rating of 300m.

A double security folding stainless steel bracelet with integrated diving extension, a mechanical Longines 633 movement that’s based off of the popular ETA 2824, a screw down crown, unidirectional aluminium rotating bezel, and a sapphire crystal glass lens.

You can see how the HydroConquest would pique the interests of any avid watch fan.

The Longines HydroConquest is now 12 years old after being introduced back in 2007. The Swatch group who own Longines had recently decided to increase the price of their popular Omega watches and needed something to fill in this lower priced gap.

This is where the Longines HydroConquest diving collection came in, more affordable than the Omega collections, it had a perfect place in the mix for The Swatch Group.
Below is an image of the Longines HydroConquest featuring a stainless steel strap.
To get things started on my Longines Hydronquest review, before the rest of our discussion about the watch I thought it would be best to list out some of the top technical specifications that people normally take a look at. This way you can easily see if this type of timepiece is for you.
Longines HydroConquest Dial and Casing Design
Now I’m not personally one to have an interest in diving, I do, however, love diving watches. For me it’s not just about the suitability of a diving watch, I find them to be extremely well built sporty watches that tend to have that bulky design I favour in a timepiece.

Diving watches often make great day to day timepieces due to their solid build and high water resistance ratings.
The Longines HydroConquest features that typically stunning design that’s perfect for both casual and formal occasions, it reminds me somewhat of the Rolex Submariner.

So whether you’re wearing a suit or sitting back in a casual short sleeve top, this timepiece simply looks perfect.

Any good luxury diving watch will feature an easy to read dial and a ton of high-quality lume, so the Longines HydroConquest does not disappoint here.

The dial features a high contrasting design with large Arabic numerals and silver toned baton style hour markers that stand out against the black background. The polished silver hands also stand out brilliantly with a diamond shaped hour hand design.

They’ve used a coating of Super Luminova for the hands, indexes, Arabic numerals, and a luminous pearl on the bezel at the 0/60 marker.

On the dial, we find the terms “Longines”, “Automatic” and “30bar (300meter)” along with a small date indicator at the 3 o’clock position. I know most people have no real use for a date display these days but it’s a feature I personally like to have on a timepiece.

The uni-directional aluminium bezel works perfectly with solid clicks and a luminous 0/60 marker. If you don’t dive, you won’t really need this feature much.
The bezel is actually a useful feature for a real diving watch, allowing the diver to keep track of an allotted time frame. Moving on to the casing of the Longines HydroConquest now, this model features a popular 41mm stainless steel case that would sit perfectly on most men’s wrists.

They do have a smaller size available if need be which measures 39mm.

There’s even a 30mm edition for women. The thickness of the casing for this model is approximately 10mm and in keeping with the typical size of diving watches in this diameter.

Another key feature you’ll find on any decent diving watch is a screw down crown. The benefits of a screw down crown are the increased water resistance it provides, stopping you from accidentally pulling the crown out whilst under water.

The crown on this Longines watch features the Longines insignia and is fairly easy to grasp.

It’s protected by two stunning looking crown guards that I find to be very nicely shaped. The caseback for the Longines HydroConquest has a solid design and screws down.

Now I’ve always been a fan of a see-through exhibition caseback so I felt a little let down by the lack of this, but at the same time, I can completely understand the decision.

Firstly the caseback needs to screw down for the added water resistance, secondly, an exhibition caseback that could withstand the pressure would certainly add quite a bit of cost to this so far affordable timepiece.
What next on our Longines Hydroconquest review? The strap of course! The Longines HydroConquest I’ve decided to feature has a stainless steel bracelet. There are of course rubber strap versions available, I just fancied featuring this particular model instead.

Like many other popular luxury diving watches, the HydroConquest makes use of a larger Oyster-style stainless steel strap.

The links are connected by screws with a polished finish to the center links, this matches up nicely with the mixed brushed and polished finish of the casing.

The stainless steel clasp fastens with a solid fold over catch with safety catch. A bonus to this strap is, of course, the diving extension feature that allows you to slip the Longines HydroConquest over your wetsuit with no added fuss.
The Longines HydroConquest Movement
At the heart of the Longines HydroConquest is a L633 caliber Swiss made automatic self-winding movement which is based off of the ETA caliber 2824 workhorse movement.

You’ll find the ETA 2824 featured in a huge range of automatic watches from the Hamilton Khaki range to the luxurious Tudor Pelagos. This Swiss made self-winding automatic movement has 25 jewel design and beats at 28,800 BPH providing you with a smooth sweeping second hands that ticks 8 times per second. When fully wound the movement has a power reserve of 38 hours.

Longines HydroConquest Crystal
Protecting the front of this luxurious diving watch is a sapphire crystal glass lens. You’ll typically find this type of glass on higher end watches as it provides an excellent level of scratch resistance with a Mohs hardness rating of 9.

The glass features an anti-reflective coating on the underside of the glass (again typically found in higher end watches) this reduces the level of glare on the timepiece.

Longines HydroConquest Water Resistance
I’ve mentioned a few times already that the Longines HydroConquest features a very good level of water resistance. It makes use of both a screw down crown and screw down caseback for a 30 bar (300meter) water resistance rating.
The Longines HydroConquest could certainly be described as a masterpiece of watch engineering. The automatic movement features a similar sweeping second hand to that that you’d find in a Rolex which is typically indicative of a quality timepiece.

The overall quality of the Longines HydroConquest is insanely good, you get a high quality Swiss movement, sapphire crystal glass, and a 300m water resistance rating. Considering this timepiece is about 1/6th the price of a Rolex, it’s a suitable alternative for anyone looking for a luxury diving watch on a budget.

Having taken a look at the quality, specifications, and pricing of this watch, I’ve decided to reward a 9/10 for my Longines Hydroconquest review.

Longines Dolce Vita 28.2 Automatic Stainless Steel Sector

Longines DolceVita Automatic Art Deco Sector Dial.Longines added a new version to its DolceVita model family, one of the modern representatives of the Art Deco trend. One of the locomotive names of the Swiss Watch Industry, Longines continues to attract a great deal of attention from watch enthusiasts with its models designed following the Heritage concept for a long time.
However, all models with nostalgic themes in the wide product range of the famous brand are not only collected under the Heritage Collection. DolceVita model family, one of the permanent names of Longines catalogs, is regarded as the modern-times representative of the Art Deco movement, which had its hey-day between 1920-1930.This trend, which also inspired legends such as the Cartier Tank and Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso, meets with watch enthusiasts once again with the new Longines DolceVita Automatic Art Deco Sector Dial.
The new model comes in a rectangular case measuring 28.20mm in width and 47.00mm in height. The Art Deco style case, rounded down from the crystal part and forming thick lugs with its long sides, is made of stainless steel. The case with a convex sapphire crystal on the front and the snap-on case back with the Longines logo on the back is accompanied by a Longines signed winding crown. The elegant case can withstand water pressure up to 30 meters.
The Longines DolceVita Automatic Art Deco Sector Dial comes with a stylish yet period-correct dial, which consists of segments separated from each other by different surface forms on metallic gray. This design, which we remember from the Longines Heritage Classic model, is accompanied by horizontally positioned bar-type hour markers and Arabic numeral indices. The date function can be viewed through the elegant window placed at 6 o’clock, while the time is displayed with the classic hands and “railroad” style scale surrounding the dial.The new model is powered by the Caliber L592. Based on the ETA A20.L011, 22-jewels automatic movement beats at a frequency of 4Hz (28.800vph) and offers up to 45 hours of power reserve when fully wound.
The Longines DolceVita Automatic Art Deco Sector Dial comes with a crocodile leather strap accompanied by a Longines signed stainless steel clasp. The strap is available in brown (L5.767.4.73.0) and black (L5.767.4.73.3) color options.

Longines Master Collection 42 Chronograph Comemorativa 500 Anos Circunavegação

Acomplicated looking, classically-designed timepiece is a welcome addition to any watch collection and something like this Longines Master Collection Moon Phase Chronograph reference L2.673.4.78.3 is a solid and affordable way to include such an item into your collection. It contains the Swiss Made ETA Valjoux 7751 which is modified to become the Longines caliber L687. My first ever “complicated” watch included a Valjoux 7751 and I think it is a very effective way to enjoy a good volume of complications without crossing into the price spectrum of haute horology products.Longines is no stranger to the 7751 movement family – having featured these movements in various Master Collection timepieces for years now. The success of combining the Master Collection timepiece aesthetic with the features in the 7751 movement is proven. This particular model comes in with an elegantly decorated movement and a very sensible 40mm wide case, which is about as small as you can get given the size of the movement itself.The 4Hz, two day power reserve 7751 automatic movement is modified visually by decoration as well as technically with the inclusion of a column-wheel transmission system for the chronograph in some models. Column wheels are nice to look at and considered to be more “collector worthy” depending on who you speak to. At the least, Longines is able to offer more than just your standard Valjoux 7751 by having the L687 caliber movement which adds a bit more technical fascination. With that said, depending on the particular Longines Master Collection model you get (meaning when it was produced) you might be getting a different movement. The more recently produced L2.673.4.78.3 seems to contain the L687 movement but slightly older models like my review unit contain the caliber L.678.2 movement which, I believe, is more or less the same thing but without the column wheel and a bit more power reserve (up to about 54 hours from about 44 hours).The core 7751 movement was designed to add functionality to the iconic Valjoux 7750 automatic 12 hour chronograph. What it adds is a complete calendar (displaying the month, date, and day of the week), as well as a moon phase indicator and synchronized 24 hour hand which effectively serves as an AM/PM indicator. I’ve written about watches that use the 7751 movement for over a decade now, and I will remind readers that one of the downsides of the 7751 is that it presents particular design challenges for watchmakers seeking to create visually balanced dials. So much of the “weight” of the information on the dial is on the left-side. That means the right side of the dial is relatively sparse and typically reserved for a watch brand logo.

Longines Master Collection 42 Chronograph Longines designs this Master Collection dial about as well as can be expected around the 7751’s quirky dial layout.I like the dial design with its traditional printed Arabic hour numerals and a barley corn pattern-aesthetic stamped into the dial. This is designed to mimic the look of guilloche-engraved dials, but to get authentic machine engraving on a dial you need to step up to a Breguet timepiece which is a sibling to Longines within the Swatch Group. Longines uses blued-steel hands properly and without many reflective surfaces on the dial, it makes for a highly legible watch. Also, there is a subtly-domed AR-coated sapphire crystal over the dial which does not suffer from glare issues, thankfully. In addition to attention to legibility, build quality is also a focus and the watch serves as a real tool-style instrument which is something very apparent in most of the Longines Master Collection products.At 40mm wide this is the smallest Master Collection watch I’ve worn that contains a 7751-based movement inside of it. Longines also produces the reference L27734783 which is a 42mm wide version of the Master Collection also outfitted with the L687 movement for those who want a slightly larger case. The challenge with a 40mm wide case is that it must look proportional given the relatively high nearly 14mm thick case, which is made necessary by the movement. This is less of an issue with a wider 42mm wide or larger case. What Longines does in order to visually reduce mass is to highly round both the polished steel bezel as well as the caseback. To the eyes, this technique results in a case that appears less thick than it actually is.With 30 meters of water resistance this isn’t a sports watch, but it is designed with enough durability to serve as a daily-wear timepiece. On the brown alligator strap this Master Collection L26734783 has a slick, old-world style appeal to it. Longines also offers the same watch in a matching steel metal bracelet in the reference L26734786 that lends it a slightly more contemporary feel. I further appreciate that Longines does not charge a premium for the metal bracelet. Whether or not you order the Master Collection moon phase chronograph on the strap or bracelet, the price is the same. That said, Longines does charge $225 more for the 42mm wide versus the 40mm wide version.There is nothing particularly revolutionary about this watch, nor does it attempt to be. Longines at its best offers a traditional, handsome timepiece in a modernly constructed and worry-free package. Longines benefits from its rich history and deep industrial resources by being part of the Swatch Group, delivering real value and product quality to global watch lovers. For that reason Longines is one of the Swatch Group’s best performing brands, and in some parts of the world it is their absolute best performing brand. As a seasoned watch collector, I see Longines as having specific value to new or more casual watch collectors with most of their products such as the Master Collection. Once in a while Longines does however release something that even veteran watch collectors simply must have. Easy to wear and enjoy, the Longines Master Collection reference L2.759.4.69.2 watch

Longines Record Replica Watch

Chronometric performance is a subject we often don’t talk about when it comes to new watches. For the most part, we are only focused on the aesthetics and we tell ourselves that if we really want to know the precise time, we should stick to quartz watches or our phones (or smartwatches). That may be true, but I certainly won’t want to be wearing a watch, no matter how beautiful it is, if it’s unreliable with accuracy. As a result, I have a soft spot for watches that are chronometer-certified and one of the big new releases from Longines this year at Baselworld is the introduction of their first all COSC-certified collection called the Longines Record.It is no secret by now that the Swiss watch industry is in a bit of a pickle. After an extended period of tremendous growth, exports have fallen considerably over the past two or so years. Watch brands are reacting to this in two main ways: a) give watch lovers and collectors what they want and b) offer more value for their money. Watch enthusiasts today love vintage-inspired watches, and as a result, Longines has given us recent hits like the Heritage 60th Anniversary watch and the Pulsometer chronograph. These two watches are prime examples of listening to buyers and giving them what they want.On the other hand, the new Longines Record collection is an example of offering more bang for the buck. As most readers might know, getting certification from COSC (Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres) costs money and that adds to the overall price of the watch. However, the good thing about a COSC certification is that it is a guarantee that the watch will run accurately. In case you have forgotten, to receive COSC certification, the movement within must meet an average daily rate of between -4 to +6 seconds a day. It must also meet criteria in other measurements such as mean variation in rate, greatest variation in rate, and rate variation due to temperature changes. Long story short, COSC certification ensures that you have a watch that won’t make you run late for your appointments.The Longines Record collection is available in four sizes and in a variety of different dials. The four sizes available are 40mm, 38.5mm, 30mm, and 26mm, so there is something for everyone. The cases are all made out of stainless steel, have mostly polished surfaces, and have a very classic, elegant design. It is undoubtedly a very dressy piece. The cases are all water resistant to 30m and have sapphire display casebacks for owners to admire the movement.The larger 40mm and 38.5mm models are powered by the Caliber L888.4 (ETA A31.L11), while the smaller 30mm and 26mm models are powered by the Longines Caliber L592.4 (ETA A20.L11). These movements are all manufactured by ETA (but exclusive to Longines) and sent to COSC for chronometer certification. It runs at 25,200vph and it has a power reserve of 64 hours – nearly three days. They are also decently finished with a generous application of perlage and a rotor that has Côtes de Genève and the skeletonized “wings” logo of Longines.We didn’t manage to get our hands on all of the watches in the Record collection, but we did manage to try out a couple of them in 40mm, 38.5mm, and 30mm size. You can get the 40mm and 38.5mm Record watches with either a steel bracelet or an alligator strap. There are six dial options to choose from and they are as follows:

White matte with Roman numerals
Black lacquered with diamond indices
Sunray gradient black with a mixture of Arabic numerals and triangular bar indices
Sunray silver with baton indices
Sunray silver with a mixture of Arabic and triangular bar indices
Blue sunray with a mixture of Arabic and triangular bar indices
We got to see the white matte one as well as the silver one with a mixture of Arabic and triangular bar indices, and they are pretty sweet. The silver dial variant has an exquisite sunray finish and the sword-shaped hands, which are rhodium plated, are well-sized and highly legible. The decision to go with a mixture of both Arabic numerals and triangular bar indices is a good one as it prevents the dial from looking too sterile. Longines has also cleverly decided to give the dial minimal text, with only the Longines brand and logo at 12 o’clock and a simple “Automatic Chronometer” at 6 o’clock. My only complaint is that the date wheel should be in silver to match the dial.The version with the matte white dial and Roman numeral hour indices is nice too. It looks much more elaborate than the silver dial version, likely due to the large Roman numerals. This version of the Longines Record also has sword-shaped hands, but instead of being rhodium-plated, they are blued steel. As a result, they provide a bright contrast against the pure white dial. The blued steel hands are really the highlight of the watch as they change hue depending on how light falls on them. They can appear as bright blue one moment and almost black the next. Another thing to note is that on this version, the color of the date window matches that of the dial almost perfectly, which, to my eyes at least, looks more harmonious. The steel bracelet has a mix of satin and mirror polishing and is comfortable on the wrist.We got the chance to handle the smaller 30mm Longines Record too. The 30mm and 26mm variants were designed for women and have 8 different dial variants to choose from. On top of the six that I mentioned above, the 30mm and 28mm models also have an additional white mother-of-pearl dial with diamond indices. The 30mm and 28mm also have case variants that come set with diamonds.Longines Record Replica Watch

The 30mm Record watch we handled was the variant with a sunray silver dial with baton indices. Obviously, it wears a lot smaller, but it also came off as a little disproportional as I found the case to be a little too thick relative to the width of the case. Even so, the decision by Longines to offer a 30mm (and 26mm) mechanical chronometer-certified watch for ladies is worth Longines Record Replica Watchapplauding.Overall, I found the 38mm version of the Longines Record with the silver dial with Arabic and triangular bar indices to be the most pleasant. The size of the case, its thickness, and the dial look just right to me. It is neither too petite nor too big, and the dial has just the right amount of stuff such that it neither looks too dull or too cluttered.Having said that, the rest of the Record collection watches are really enjoyable too. But more importantly, it is encouraging to see Longines offer thoughtfully designed watches with chronometric performance in mind. Even more impressive perhaps is that they have smaller variants that were designed with women in mind.

The Longines Record collection is their first collection of chronometers that are specifically designed for high-precision timekeeping. However, a more noteworthy aspect of this collection is that there is something for the ladies as well. The above Longines record review shows that the brand is serious about creating watches at great prices.

longines moonphase blue replica

The Longines Moon Phase Watches stay true to the brand’s philosophy thanks to their distinguished charm and the finesse of their finish. These grand complication watches are the perfect example of the brand’s technical and aesthetical mastery, making good use of its rich watchmaking history to provide you with exceptional moon phase watches longines moonphase blue replica
The deep blue-on-blue colors blend seamlessly with the skies that pass on the moonphase indicator. Continuing the theme with a blue alligator strap, it’s as if the evening skies had fallen over the entire watch, bringing darkness that’s serenely contrasted by twinkles of light from diamonds, white indices, and a gleaming stainless steel case.
For about a decade and a half, the Master Collection has been Longines’ home for its more traditional pieces that play off classic watchmaking tropes without being all-out throwbacks (that’s reserved for the Heritage collection). The latest addition is this understated group of moonphase watches.
Offering well-designed watches from a reputed Swiss company at reasonable prices seems to be a winning strategy for Longines. Introduced in 2019, the Longines Master Collection Moonphase watch continues this story, with a policy of keeping Longines in the price segment that it dominates (700 to 3,500 Swiss francs) – even with complications. Available in two sizes (40mm and 42mm), the moon phase model come with a range of different dials, including one with diamond indices. Today, we’ll be looking at the 42mm Master Collection Moonphase with a handsome blue sunray dial, the most contemporary-looking of the lot with its on-trend colour scheme and simple but elegant dial.
The Master Collection was launched in 2005, a collection of elegant classics with various complications ranging in complexity. Unlike the extremely popular Heritage Collection that references specific vintage models and revisits them with an earnest respect for the past, the Master Collection references traditional watchmaking codes with casual, elegant good looks. After all, not everybody wants a retro remake or a vintage-inspired watch. For many buyers, a simple classic watch for daily wear from a reputable watchmaker with a small complication and an affordable price tag is just what the watch doctor ordered.
The moon phase models joined the repertoire in 2019 adding to the existing line-up of three-hand-and-date, day/date, power reserve, chronographs, annual calendar models all the way up to sophisticated calendar chronograph combinations.

Moon phase and pointer date
The dial is blue with a lovely sunray finish emanating its subtle rays from the centre. Sunray or sunburst means dials with a texture similar to brushed metal, which is known for its chameleonic ability to catch the light. A moon phase complication is not an essential feature for daily life; it is more of a poetic reminder of the waxing and waning of our neighbouring satellite. The golden moon and accompanying stars appear in an aperture at 6 o’clock, a traditional location for this kind of complication.
The feature I most enjoy about this model is the pointer date. Instead of disrupting the dial with an aperture for the date, this simplest of complications is handled in the simplest and most discreet way possible and arranged around the moon phase counter. The numbers 1 – 31 are picked out in white and indicated by a silver hand.
The fact that this model does not rely on Roman hour numerals gives it a more contemporary air. The dial features long baton-style applied indices with a slightly thicker marker at 12 o’clock, and time is read with elegant silvery feuille or leaf-style hour and minute hands. The minutes are relayed on an inclined flange which gives the dial additional depth. The brand’s traditional winged hourglass logo is applied to the dial below the brand name at noon. In keeping with its classic spirit, there is not a trace of lume on the dial.
The case is identical to all the other watches in the Longines Master Collection with its round, fluid contours, polished surfaces and relatively short lugs. Measuring 42mm, it might be on the large side for purists but is in line with contemporary dress watch sizes. Good point though, a smaller 40mm model is also available. The watch we had for this hands-on comes with a handsome matching blue alligator strap and triple-folding clasp in steel.

Automatic movement
The automatic movement was developed exclusively for Longines by sister company ETA, both part of Swatch Group’s empire. The calibre L899 (based on ETA A31.L91) was upgraded for Longines with a slightly reduced frequency of 25,200 vibrations/hour and a longer power reserve of 64 hours. The movement can be seen through the sapphire caseback with its signed Longines rotor and a cut-out area shaped like the brand’s winged hourglass logo. The Côtes de Genève on the rotor and the perlage on the mainplate might be machine-made, but add a satisfying touch to the movement.
