Watch: Longines Conquest Classic

TIMELY CONQUEST. A nod to the chronographs of the past produced for race-goers and jockeys in New York is the new Conquest Classic line by Longines.

Shaped in stately 41mm casing, the only chronograph out of the three models in the collection is fitted with an L688 columnwheel movement, specially developed and produced by ETA exclusively for the Swiss luxury watch brand. Three chronograph sub-dials occupy the silvered or black dial, complemented by a date window between four and five o’clock. For a rather posh look, pick the rose gold casing version with a dashing black alligator strap. If not, the steel version is equally modish for any occasion.
