The Watch
The Longines Conquest line was first introduced in 1954, embodying the classic mid-century dress watch design. The clean, straightforward design led to the success of this line, which allowed the brand to create various iterations of the model. This particular piece dates from 1969 and houses a calibre 431 movement which beats away at 36,000 bph, 10 beats per second! 
The 37mm Tonneau shaped case offers you something different on the Wrist whilst radiating sheer quality, it's evident Longines didn't penny pinch when creating this guy. We've paired this with a new Stainless Steel Bracelet that is really making this Longines sing.
