    Longines: About the accuracy - Share your rates!

    I'm interested of the accuracy and performance of Longines watches. The reason why I started tihis thread is that I own Longines watch (Hydroconquest) and I'm curious to know how it performs when compering it to the other Longines watches. It also helps identify if there is something wrong in your watch.

    Usefull tools when measuring your watch:
    https://time.is/
    https://www.time.gov/
    WatchCheck app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...tchcheck&hl=fi


    So post to this thread (for example):
    • Watch name (Hydroconquest)
    • Caliber (L619/888)
    • Rate (+10 sec/day)
    • How much is average variation of the rate? ( +- 3 sec/day)
    • How you use it or what might effect to accuracy? (during sport excercises or during hard physical work, only office work, etc)



    Here is mine:
    • Hydroconquest
    • L619/888
    • +10 sec/day
    • +-3 sec/day
    • Everyday life, cycling, no hard physical work

    The L3.741.4 39 mm. I bought it new about 6 months ago.
    If you're wondering about the accuracy, well, I just lucked out.

    Mine Tribute to 1969 has similar variations. It’s L888 automatic movement with daily variation of about 1s. It’s remarkable feat for Longines. I believe Longines is one of the best brand if you are particular about the accuracy of the watch.

    Re: Longines: About the accuracy - Share your rates!

    Is there anybody who doesn't have so great accuracy? :)
    +1 sec/day sound really top grade!

    I took my watch back to Longines to check out what's wrong with it. I got it back yeasterday with a message that sayd it was magneticed.
    It's strange because I took it before to clocksmith (not Longines) who looked it with a machine and the result was that it's not magneticed.
    He told me that if it's magneticed then the rates could be like +1 or +2 min in a day.

    After Longines service the accuracy is +6 sec/day. It's better than +10 sec/day and within rates that Longines promise.
    If I compare it to rates that I have seen in this thread it's not so good anymore. Have to wait and see how it developes.

    Thank you for replies! This is interesting :)

    Well, maybe I should not mention it but my new 41 mm Conquest V.H.P. runs at +0.01 sec/day, less than 4 SPY... Impossible to determine variation by just eyeballing.
