The Longines Conquest looks and sounds like the ultimate GADA to me. 300m wr, sporty design, extremely legible, dresses up or down, beautifully polished bracelet, great history, screw down crown, sapphire, comes in multiple sizes, and on the list could go. But you never hear it suggested or even mentioned ever.
I own a Conquest VHP and while I think it is a good watch, the auto Conquest definitely is the better looking watch and has specs more associated with a sports model, but I only really hear about the VHP. I’m curious, why do you think the auto Conquest, which is clearly the better sports watch in my opinion, gets very little attention or love? They definitely have made more of an effort to market the VHP, especially with the GMT release, but either way, I still felt like WIS would appreciate them a bit more, especially considering you can get them at pretty good prices on the gray market.
