Longines HydroConquest full ceramic

Deep And Dark: A new all-ceramic version broadens the Longines HydroConquest collection

Longines HydroConquest full ceramic

Earlier this year, Longines released a new set of models under its HydroConquest collection, inspired by the field of aquatic sports. Among them was the all-black HydroConquest.

The HydroConquest comes with features that meet the ISO standards for dive watches such as 300-meter water resistance, unidirectional rotating bezel and double security folding clasp.

What makes the HydroConquest a cut above the rest is that it’s made from ceramic — Zirconium dioxide to be exact, as denoted by the chemical equation (ZrO2) printed on the dial at 6 o’clock. This material has extremely high resistance to crack propagation and thermal conductivity, which helps keep the watch intact during dives even when there are changes in the environment.

The use of different textures on the watch such as a matt dial, a round satin brushed bezel, and a rubber strap lend the HydroConquest a dynamic appearance despite its monochromatic colorway. Providing a nice contrast to it are white Super-LumiNova® coated hands and indexes (blue in the dark), which also makes for superb readability regardless of lighting conditions underwater.
