    Longines Conquest

    Hey Cats,
    A Longines Conquest is on my horizon. Longines has been a name I've wanted in my collection for sometime now. It's a quartz piece and it looks about the mid 90's. I've been trying to find it online but no luck. However I've found similar looking pieces but not close enough.

    So how about a Longines Conquest show?? Maybe someone here has the model I saw. Hook a brother up folks

    Peace,
    Preston

    You occasionally see them pop up on eBay. The one's I've seen though have been in pretty dire straights. If I ever see a NOS model come along I might go after it. You might want to ask this question over on the High-end Quartz Watches forum.

    So what difference does it make, whether it's 20 minutes or 20 years, since neither amounts to the faintest echo of the tiniest whisper in the thunder of time.

    ....oh I assume you are talking about one with a VHP movement, because that would be the only one worth pursuing.

    The thermal compensated VHP Conquest came out in 1984 and was offered well into the 90's. There was a mediocre one on ebay recently.

    Re: Longines Conquest

    In my search I saw several with the VHP notation and they look very similar to the Longines in question. What does said VHP mean on this watch?

    Found a pic that closely resembles the version I'm waiting on, the difference is the dial, mine will be a dark grey with redish indices/chapters. Thanks to the owner of this pic

    VHP = very high precision (thermo-compensated quartz, I believe).
