The Watch

Here we have a 1975 Longines Conquest Cal. L847.3 with a 30mm Square Case that has chamfered edges leading to stubby flat-ended lugs, the slim profile and sloping sides of the case lead to a  lug-to-lug length of 32.5mm and a case thickness of only 6.5mm ensures a comfortable fit on your wrist. On the right side is a signed push/pull crown. A square acrylic crystal sits above a horizontal brushed textured Blue Crosshair Dial with applied steel slim baton indexes marking the hours. Elegant steel baton hands perfectly balance this sophisticated vintage dress watch. At 12 o’clock we have the Longines motif and at 6 o’clock “Conquest”, this line of sporty dress watches was first introduced in 1954. On the reverse a snap-off case back, inside a manually wound Longines Cal. L847.3, 17 jewels, beating at 21,600 beats per hour. The watch comes paired with its Longines leather strap and Longines buckle.


Personal Note

The moment I saw this Longines I had to have it in stock, the case shape and condition are wonderful and look so good on the wrist, especially if, like me, you enjoy a smaller cased watch! The dial is incredible too, changing its colour depending on the light and how it hits it... If you're after a fun vintage watch that isn't going to break the bank, snap this gem up!


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 onto 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 with a single pusher the calibre 13.33z was introduced in 1913. They became the official supplier of 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 10 years. They also 2009 became the official timekeeper for the French Open at Roland Garros. Purchased in 1971 by ‘Ebauches SA’, Swiss watchmakers SSIH owned Omega, Tissot, and Lemania, and ASUAG owned Certina, Endura, Eterna, Hamilton, Longines, Mido, and Rado. were merged in 1983 to become the Swatch Group in 1998.
