    Question Difference Longines' V.H.P 80s watches and the modern V.H.P watches?

    Is it the same kind of movement or are the new V.H.P. watches using a newer technology?

    We in this forum are focusing on the accuracy/precision aspects. Accuracy/precision-wise the current VHP does not offer any advancement compared to the earlier (back to the year 1985) models. The factory specifications are tighter for accuracy with the current model but Longines and/or ETA did not explained that with advancement in technologies. It is important to note that earlier VHP models were fitted with digital calibration terminal that allowed fine calibration (in steps of 4 seconds/year) of the VHP watches. Unfortunately that feature is not to be found in the current models. My personal choice from an accuracy/precision point of view are the earlier models.
