    Longines Conquest

    Heya There!

    Please help! Im seeing an advertiser of a Longines Conquest this weekend in response from an ad selling his watch. The price is affordable but Im not really sure if the watch is authentic Longines. From the picture he sent, the face doest have the V.H.P. or the Perpetual Calendar words.. I noticed that on its face, you can see the Longines logo at the uppermost part and Quartz on the lowermost part of the face.

    Im thinking if it's authentic? Did Longines manufacture this model with variations such that the one one im buying has the word 'quartz" only on its face?

    Help ASAP! Thanks everyone.

    Thank you for the immediate reply. I tried to save the pictures but they are too small to be scrutinized. Anyway, i saved the link so you can have a closer look at the item. Please let me know how you think of the watch. I appreciate your help.

    Thanks very much.

    Even if that watch is real it looks like a fake.

    Doesn't look good to me, but Dennis would know much better than I.

    Thanks, but your guess is as good (or better) than mine when it comes to 80's watches. I have no clue if it's real or counterfeit, but faking a quartz watch from that era seems like an awful lot of work for very little money.
