The Watch

Here, we have a 1993 Longines Conquest VHP Titanium & 18ct Gold with its curvaceous 35mm Titanium case, thanks to the flowing integrated bracelet and drilled lugs, the case gently curves over your wrist, and a lug-to-lug length of 38mm and a case thickness of just 7.5mm ensure a comfortable fit. An 18ct Yellow gold domed crown has deep knurling for grip. The 18ct Yellow Gold bezel has attractive scalloped detailing and holds a flat sapphire crystal above a dark grey dial, an outer minute track is precisely executed with numerals at the cardinal points surrounding Gold Roman numerals marking the hours; at 3 o’clock, a framed colour-matched date window and elegant slender Gold sword hands are complemented by a tapered second hand. At 12 o’clock, we have the Longines motif, and at 6 o’clock, Ti for Titanium and V.H.P Quartz are in a flowing script, completing this sophisticated sports watch. On the reverse, a solid case back with the details of the watch deeply engraved inside a quality Very High Precision VHP Quartz movement, made in partnership with Asulab, the Research and Development laboratory for the Swatch Group, produced from 1984 until 1995.

Personal Note

Where there is a design trend, it always seems like Longines has had something in its past that ticked those boxes long before the trend took its roots. This Longines Conquest VHP features a Titanium & 18ct Gold case and integrated bracelet, a bold look in 35mm that fits the wrist effortlessly, especially paired with its deep and dark grey dial and matching gold tones, beautifully executed. This model comes with its original paperwork and receipt from 1993, incredible they have stayed with the watch for this long. I would not hesitate to add this watch to your collection today!


The Brand

Longines was founded in 1832 by Auguste Agassiz and is considered to be the oldest registered watch brand. The Longines factory was opened in 1867 in Saint-Imier, Switzerland. From this date, the name Longines was present on their dials, and the winged hourglass was engraved on their movements. After visiting the Universal Exhibition of 1876 in the United States, Longines became pioneers in mechanised production. In 1880, the brand name was filed with the Federal Office of Intellectual Property; later, their logo was registered in 1889. Their first wristwatch, which had a single pusher, the calibre 13.33z, was introduced in 1913. They became the official supplier for the International Aeronautical Federation in 1919. Lindbergh, the aviator and adventurer, worked with Longines to create the Hour Angle watch in 1927. Their first self-winding calibre 22A was produced in 1945. With continued innovation and technical achievements, Longines became the official timekeeper for Formula One in 1983 for ten years. They also in 2009, became the official timekeeper for the French Open at Roland Garros. Purchased in 1971 by ‘Ebauches SA’, Swiss watchmakers SSIH, who owned Omega, Tissot and Lemania and ASUAG, who owned Certina, Endura, Eterna, Hamilton, Longines, Mido and Rado. were merged in 1983 to become the Swatch Group in 1998.
