Pre-Baselworld 2015: Longines Conquest Classic Moonphase

Longines Conquest Classic Moonphase

This is a Longines we have already seen before. But since classic chronographs with moon phase indication are again getting popular the Conquest Classic Moonphase makes it way back to the markets…

 

The Conquest brand was patented through the WIPO on 25. May 1954. Since then this name has been used for many successful models produced by Longines across the years. With a diameter of 42 mm, this chronograph houses the self-winding mechanical chronograph movement L678. The case is available in steel, in steel and rose gold cap or in 18 carats rose gold.

The black or silvered dial is set with 9 applied indices coated with Super-LumiNova and makes an elegantly contrasting background to the moonphase display. It features the 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock, the 24-hour indicator and the subdial for the seconds at 9 o’clock, as well as the 30-minute counter and the day-and-month display at 12 o’clock.  The date is indicated by a half-moon central hand.

Water-resistant to 5 bar, these models display a transparent case back through which its scintillating movement can be observed. These chronographs are fitted on a black alligator strap or a steel or steel and rose gold cap bracelet, all having a triple folding safety clasp.

  • Gee, I just sold an Omega Speedmaster 18K from 1990 just like it. Valjoux Cal. 7750 I believe.
    What I want is a perpetual calendar that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.
