Introducing: The Longines HydroConquest U.S. Exclusive Limited Edition

Speedy Take

The HydroConquest is Longines’ contemporary plunge fake watch prices offering, and keeping in mind that it’s not much, it is solidly fabricated and reasonable. Prices start at around $1,275, and for that you get a 300-meter water safe case, a sapphire gem with numerous layers of antireflective covering, the required ISO 6425 compliant unidirectional pivoting bezel, and a decent twofold collapsing catch wristband with jumper’s expansion. There’s been an overall update to HydroConquest this year (accompanied by a slight value knock). This straight from-Baselworld restricted release is the U.S. market just form of the refresh.

Starting Thoughts

The HydroConquest fake watch prices were presented by Longines right back in 2007, as a component of a bigger rollout of the Sport Collection, which at the time comprised of four families. We had the Conquest and HydroConquest, which are both still with us, and there were additionally two different families: Grand Vitesse, and Admiral, the two of which are not, at this point in Longines’ list. (My impression in those days was that the company was assessing the market for contemporary-styled Longines sports fake watch prices You may say they were, you know…testing the waters.) The large news during the current year’s update is the expansion of a ceramic bezel, just as the presentation of new dial tones and new NATO-style elastic straps.

The USA-driven components are genuinely limited – the numeral 50 on the fired bezel is in Super-LumiNova (out of appreciation for the 50 states) and there’s a little “USA” between the four and five o’clock hour markers. There’s additionally an “Select Edition USA” etching on the caseback. All fake watch prices come with the standard HydroConquest hardened steel arm band, and the previously mentioned NATO ties (in blue, dim, or dark). The development is the Longines type L888.2, which is a re-tuned adaptation of the ETA 2892 – the ETA A31.L01. While the stock 2892 is a 28,800 vph type with a 42 hour power save, type A31.L01 runs at a marginally more slow pace of 25,200 vph and has a more extended force hold of 65 hours. Prices start at $1,800 for the blue bezel and dial model, and $2,100 for the dim or dark PVD models.
