Longines Conquest V.H.P.: A New Quartz Revolution

Postby Racer-X » March 9th 2017, 1:44pm

"In 1954, with quartz timekeeping technology still in its embryonic phase, Longines launched the world’s first quartz clock with atomic precision, which was certified at Switzerland’s Neuchatel Observatory. This week, that selfsame observatory was the stage for the unveiling of a new wristwatch with an all-new ultra-precise, high-tech quartz movement: the Longines Conquest V.H.P."

That blue dial with red hour markers really tickles my fancy.

Missed prices?
