    Our Must See Monday offering for this week is a faithful reissue of the famous Longines Conquest watch collection, now celebrating its 60th anniversary. Unveiled at Baselworld 2014, the limited edition collection is released in honour of the Conquest name first being registered with the Swiss Federal Intellectual Property Office in May 1954.

    The new Longines Conquest Heritage runs to four timepieces; one in a stainless steel case and three others in gold cases. Each bear the same dial design as the original Conquest from 1954 and, surprisingly, have the same modest 1954 dimensions of just 35mm. The new Conquest watches also have case backs decorated with the “gold seal of Longines quality,” a gold-and-enamel medallion.

    True to the original design, the collection features the name “Conquest” inscribed on the dials in the exact same typeface as the originals. The dials in stainless steel, yellow gold and rose gold, are silvered and adorned with the same sunburst motif as the 1954 model.

    A second yellow-gold watch has a gilded dial, a tribute to a later Longines Conquest model that was presented as “the new jewel in the proud Conquest line.” The dials of the steel and yellow-gold models have applied yellow-gold-coloured indices, while the rose-gold model has rose-gold-coloured applied indices.

    The elegant three hander watches are powered by Longines’s mechanical Calibre L633


    Two versions of its gold-and-enamel quality seal medallion are featured on the screw-down case backs: the gold models depict a constellation, while the steel version represents a fish. The watches come on a black alligator strap. The gold models are limited to only 60 pieces each, priced at $5,500; while the steel model is limited to 600 pieces and will retail for $1,850.

    I like these a lot! There's always been something about the classic Conquest designs that speaks to me, more so than the current designs.

    Re: Must See Monday: Longines Conquest Heritage Collection

    This was my favourite watch from Baselworld 2014, But I don't quite understand the pricing. An original Longines Conquest in solid gold can be had for the price of the new steel model, and an original steel model can be found easily for well under $1000. Who would buy a replica when and original can be had for less? Otherwise, hopefully the new model will stir up demand for vintage Longines, in my opinion they are the most undervalued vintage watches.
