an Ultra-Accurate Quartz That Runs Within 5 Seconds a Year
Resurrecting a name from the 1980s with a high-tech quartz movement, which will be launched at Baselworld 2017.


With plain looks that belie the latest generation ETA quartz movement inside, the Conquest V.H.P. harks back to Longines‘ history as a maker of cutting edge electronic timing. The firm’s history in that field started with in 1954 Chronocinégines, a quartz timekeeper linked to a 1/100th of a second camera developed to capture athletes crossing the finishing line at sporting events.

The bulky electronic clocks eventually evolved into precision quartz wristwatches like the Ultra-Quartz of 1969, and the original Conquest V.H.P. that made its debut in 1984. Rate to +/-10 seconds a year, the Conquest V.H.P. – short for “Very High Precision” – was the most accurate wristwatch on the market.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
